Small stars made it big in 2013 - Exclusive

on Dec 20, 2013

Kollywood has 150+ releases so far in this year and 2013 has turned out to be felicitous to many Tamil actors and actresses. While some have seen their first blockbuster or a phenomenal hit during this year, few others had their debut Tamil films turing out to be hits at Chennai box office.

Tamil stars namely Siva Karthikeyan, Oviya Helen, Vijay Sethupathi, Nazriya Nazim, Jai, Lakshmi Menon, Vimal, Manish Yadav, Vinay Rai, Regina Cassandra and Jai are few stars, who have seen success in 2013. Here we go with few rising Tamil stars who have leaved an impact in Tamil cinema and made it big by delivering couple of good entertainers during 2013.

Siva Karthikeyan:

Siva Karthikeyan joined the list of heroes who has won hat-trick hits in Tamil cinema. Pandiraj's Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga [Mar 29], Priya Anand's Ethir Neechal [May 1] and Ponram directed Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam [Sep 6] are the three consecutive hits of Siva Karthikeyan in 2013 after Marina and Manam Kothi Paravai during 2012.

Nazriya Nazim:

17 year old Malayalam star Nazriya Nazim has debuted to Kollywood with her bilingual movie Neram [May 17]. Neeram's success has apparently opened doors to Nazriya and her next installment in Tamil industry director Atlee's Raja Rani with Arya, Nayantara and Jai [Sep 27] was also hit, while Dhanush's Naiyaandi [Oct 11] couldn't survive longer.

Vijay Sethupathi:

After delivering three superhit Tamil films Sundarapandian, Pizza and Nadavula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom in 2012, Vijay Sethupathi has once again proved his mettle with Soodhu Kavvum [May 1] that was declared a blockbuster with 60+ crores of returns, followed by Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara [Oct 2] in 2013. With consecutive five hits, Vijay turned out to be phenomenal in choosing appropriate scripts and has sustained as an established actor in Kollywood. Vijay Sethupathi appears to be ready to continue the winning streak in 2014, as he is lined up with Pannaiyarum Padminiyum, Rummy, Purampokku with Arya and few more movies.

Lakshmi Menon:

Lakshmi Menon is one more actress from Mollywood, who debuted to Tamil with superhit Sundarapandian opposite director, actor and producer Sasikumar, which has won her filmfare for best female debut award. Post successful Kumki with Vikram Prabhu, Lakshmi has no looking back and is busy with hand full of projects in Kollywood. Kutti Puli [May 30] and Vishal's Pandiyanadu [Nov 2] are the two superhit outings of Lakshmi Menon during 2013.

Vimal:

Vimal, who started his acting career in 2004 with Vijay's Ghilli has turned a full fledged hero with Pandiraj's Pasanga. Though Vimal acted in many films that added credits to his roles and performances, the actor is still waiting for a Tamil film that acquires a commercial success. During this year, Vimal has four releases namely Sillunu Oru Sandhippu [Feb 14], Jannal Oram [Nov 29], Bindu Madhavi starred Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga [Mar 29] and Desinguraja [Aug 24].

Oviya:

Oviya Helen popularly known as Oviya has tasted success in 2013 with Vimal's Sillunu Oru Sandhippu [Feb 14], Moodar Koodam [Sep 13] and Madha Yaanai Koottam [Dec 13], a maiden individual production venture of music director turned producer GV Prakash. Oviya is one more young actress in Kollywood, who is striving hard to get a commercial success.

Vinay Rai:

Vinay Rai has struck with the gold in 2013, as both of his films Onbadhula Guru [Mar 8] and Endrendrum Punnagai [Dec 20] has recorded hits. While he was one among the lead stars in slapstick Onbadhula Guru, Vinay played Jeeva's friend in Endrendrum Punnagai and got laurels for his performance in the film.

Manisha Yadav:

After Vazhakku Enn 18/9, Manisha Yadav is part of Adhalal Kadhal Seiveer [Aug 15], one more thought provoking Tamil film on teenage romance. Adhalal Kadhal Seiveer also received good comments from all centers of audiences. Vimal's Jannal Oram [Nov 29] is Manisha's second release during 2013 that couldn't make much impact at box office.

Jai:

Jai has emerged as a big ticketing hero with his matured performance in Arya, Nayantara, Nazriya Nazim starred Raja Rani [Sep 27], which has brought in good openings for his next film Naveena Saraswathi Sabatham [Nov 29], produced by AGS Entertainments.

Sundeep Kishan:

Sundeep Kishan has emerged as a promising hero with his Tamil debut film Maranthen Mannithen. Positive talk of Tamil Telugu bilingual film Maranthen Mannithen [Mar 22], a Maestro Ilayaraja's musical has opened doors to Sundeep Kishan both in Tamil and Telugu film industries. And the star is left with three consecutive hits Maranthen Mannithen, Yaaruda Mahesh [Apr 26] and Telugu movie Venkatadri Express during 2013.

Regina Cassandra:

After Azhagiya Asura in 2006, Regina Cassandra is back to Kollywood with Pandiraj directed Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga [Mar 29] that enjoyed good run and box office profits. Following KBKR, Regina has done a Tamil drama film Nimayam [Oct 18] opened with mixed reviews and stood dud.

Tamil actors namely Adharvaa [Bala's Paradesi], Pooja Kumar [Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam] along with Prasanna Venkatesan and Lekha Washington through Kalyana Samayal Saadham have made a phenomenal comeback during 2013.

Parvathy Menon [Dhanush's Mariyan], Action King Arjun's daughter Aishwariya Arjun [Vishal's Pattathu Yaanai], Thulasi Nair [Mani Ratnam's Kadal], Sri Divya [Siva Karthikeyan's Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam], Adhav Kannadasan [Ponmaalai Pozhudhu], Gautham Karthik [Kadal], Arya's brother Sathya [Puthagam], Radha Mohan directed Gouravam lead cast Yami Gautham and Allu Sirish are the few stars who have done their promising debuts during 2013 and few of them are giving their best for grand releases in 2014 too.
