Top 10 Best Tamil Cinema Actresses

Tamil cinema has produced some of the best actresses. There have been many actresses who are not credited for the greatness they have contributed to making Tamil cinema what it is today.
The Top Ten
1 Nayanthara Diana Mariam Kuriyan, better known by her stage name Nayanthara, is an Indian film actress who predominantly appears in South Indian movies.

She carries the whole movie herself without any help from other heroes. She will not easily give up on showcasing everything she has. Her talent and dedication towards acting deserve a bow.

Best actress and inspiration for all actresses on how to manage controversies.

2 Savithri

Savithri Garu and Saroja Devi Garu are the only actresses to be called legends. Their period was the golden era of Indian cinema. They are incomparable with Sridevi and Madhuri Mam in Indian cinema. They are the true legends.

Yes, truly Savithri is a legendary actress, not only in Tamil but overall in India. No one can act like Savithri. She proved herself with so many roles. Savithri lives on.

3 Anushka Shetty Sweety Shetty, known by her stage name Anushka Shetty, is an Indian actress and model who predominantly works in Telugu and Tamil films.

The ultimate sex symbol and actress of South India. Great actor with smoldering looks.

Most fabulous acting and more beautiful. Acting queen and South queen.

She only performs well in love films and emotional roles. No other actresses have done as well.

5 Manorama

An actress with so many personalities. Just name it and you would find one among the characters she has played.

6 K. R. Vijaya

Beauty, smile, acting - all combined to make K R Vijaya one of the top heroines in Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam movies. She is the only one I see who has maintained her position right from the 60s, 70s, and even in the 80s, and is still around. She is the only actress who commanded a name for herself where her movie has her name even before the hero of the movies.

A complete package for any kind of acting. Beauty and great potential for acting. The only actress who was top in Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam movies, acting alongside all top heroes like Sivaji, MGR, Gemini Ganesh, NTR, etc.

7 Jyothika

She is the best actress in Tamil Cinema. Not only in her second innings, but she has also acted in many experimental films like Snegithiye, June R, Three Roses, Pachaikili Muthucharam, and Mozhi in her first innings. She didn't depend on glamour, and she took risks by acting in films which didn't have a powerful hero to market the film. She has the same charisma even after so many years. She is shaping her career while also being an inspiration to many married women.

She is my favorite! The best! Hard to believe she grew up in Mumbai and speaks such fluent Tamil! She is the BEST!

8 Samantha Ruth Prabhu Samantha Ruth Prabhu is an Indian actress and model. She has established a career in the Telugu and Tamil film industries, and is a recipient of four Filmfare Awards.

9 Kajal Aggarwal Kajal Aggarwal is an Indian film actress and model. One of the most popular Indian celebrities, she has established a career in the Telugu and Tamil film industries and has been nominated for four Filmfare Awards South.

South superstar - these two words are more than enough to describe Kajal.

She is a complete performer of all times. The most beautiful, charming, and lovely actress the cinema world has got.

A wonderful actress who gives life to the character she acts. A legendary heroine and a superb human being.

Very good actress in Tamil cinema.

The Contenders
11 Raadhika Sarathkumar

A phenomenal actress who is supposed to be at top 2 after Savithri Amma. An actress can justify her role only when she gives life through her own voice. In that sense, Radhika deserves to be at the top and is a brand icon for acting.

A superb actress who could justify any roles. She is still one of the most sought-after actresses.

12 Keerthy Suresh
13 Lakshmi

An example of excellent acting coupled with a beautiful face.

An all-in-all actress who excels in beauty, dance, and acting. There's still no replacement for this forever dream girl!

Such a wonderful artist, Simran is in Indian cinema. No one can beat her in dance, acting, glamour, and her structure.

Should be at par with Jo. Not acceptable to see Simran at rank 8.

17 Genelia
18 Tamanna

A lot of people think that Tamanna sucks, but she is the queen of acting in Tamil cinema. Her acting is amazing. I don't really like her dancing, but her acting and beauty are why I like her as my best Tamil actress. Tamanna doesn't deserve to be in a horrible place like this. She should be in first place or at least in one of the top ten places.
