my herooo

22 Tamanna

She's a good actor, but her acting is underutilized as most South Indian movies are male centric and cast actresses as just a bubbly love interest for the protagonist (hence the bad acting, so actually it's the director's fault) and for fanservice (which she does perfectly as she is a perfect woman) and to add more she's an amazing dancer too(one of the absolute best)

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

I love her...she is my dolly

Very good actress
