    Hi sunilkunnoth2012,

    Thank you for expressing your views.

    I think there is no much difference between North and South Indian actresses, except the skin color. Further, the definition of beauty changes according to regions and cultures. Beauty is in our vision.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    As far as film quality is concerned, South Indian movies especially Malayalam stands tall. But when we talk of beauties, I think the North Indian actresses are more beautiful.

    As I live in Maharashtra state, which is not a part of Southern India, I too do not get a chance to watch all South Indian movies. But few of them are often dubbed or remade in Hindi, and that is the only way to me watch them.

    I only seen one or two movies that are in these south Indian languages - we don't get a lot here. I liked them, but I don't remember who played in them.
