Even though South Indian movie Industries like (Tollywood, Kollywood, and Mollywood) are getting worldwide popularity, most of the actors from these industries have shown interest and wanted to act in Bollywood films as well.
Bollywood is a huge film industry and recently lots of South Indian actors including big names like Chiranjeevi, Prabhas, and Dulquer Salmaan took the leading roles in Bollywood films.
However, many celebrities from the South Indian film industries don’t wish to dazzle the Bollywood industry with their acting skills and camera presence.
When there are so many crossover films, and the world becomes a smaller place, it is pretty hard to think that actors really don’t want to move from South to North and vice versa.
Many actors walked the bridge between Bollywood and Tollywood and became big stars in both the industries like Madhavan, Tamannaah Bhatia, Siddharth, and Asin.
On the other hand, some most successful South Indian stars have turned down Bollywood offers. These actors don’t think that Bollywood would be any good for them and they are very happy doing their regional films.
Check out the list of South Indian actors who refused to work in Bollywood movies.
Little you know the huge fan following of Prince Mahesh aka Mahesh Babu and his good looks and charm. However, Mahesh Babu loves to stay in Tollywood and continue to do regional cinemas.
A few years ago, it was rumored all around the B-Town that Mahesh Babu will feature in the Bollywood remake of his hit movie Businessman. If it was true then it would be his Bollywood debut movie.
However, the fans’ dreams were shattered when Mahesh Babu cleared the air saying he had no plan to make a Bollywood debut at all.
Naga Chaitanya is famous for his acting skills and camera presence. This dark and handsome actor has delivered many jaw-dropping performances in the movies. His notable films include Ye Maaya Chesave, Majili, Premam, Venky Mama, and many more.
His father Nagarjuna has acted in many Bollywood movies like Khuda Gawah, Zakhm, LOC: Kargil, etc. However, Naga declared that he has no plan to feature in Bollywood films.
Nagarjuna is all set to share the screen space with Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, and Mouni Roy in the much-awaited Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra.
The movies were announced as a mythological trilogy. The movies will be bankrolled by Karan Johar’s Dharma Production. The film is scheduled to release in December this year.
The Malayalam actor Nivin Pauly is famous for his killer looks. Recently he was in the news headlines because his picture with Bollywood’s master director Anurag Kashyap went viral on social media.
Everyone started assuming that Nivin might make his debut in Bollywood films.
It would be a dream come true moment for Nivin Pauly fans if he made his Bollywood debut with Anurag Kashyap in a gritty and realistic film based on the filth of urban crime.
Unfortunately, the actor has decided to focus on only Malayalam films. However, there are chances that he may change his mind in the near future.
Allu Arjun is a big name in the Telgu Movie Industry. He made a sensational debut with Arya and smashed all the box office records with his hit films like Race Gurram, and DJ.
This handsome hunk of Telugu cinema has come a long way to become the sensational star in South films.
It is very obvious that after making this big in the South Indian film industry, he might get a line of producers from all the industries to cast him in the films. Sadly, Allu Arjun rejected all the Bollywood offers he got recently.
However, Allu Arjun has no plans to make a Bollywood debut. Movie analysts have speculated the fan following of Allu Arjun in the whole country and if he featured in any Bollywood movie then the movie would be a big hit for sure.
Anushka Shetty is a popular actress in the Tamil and Telugu film industries having fans all across India. Since most South Indian actresses have come to Bollywood and done some brilliant films.
We hope Anushka Shetty will feature in some Bollywood movies too. It is rumored that Anushka has denied some big Bollywood projects because of a lack of time.
When Anushka was asked if she would ever enter the Bollywood industry then she refused to say that she has already a tight shooting schedule.
We just hope that Anushka would get some time to think about doing Bollywood films too.
