Whether she is one of the best actresses down under (southern Indian films), or just a crowd puller for obvious reasons best known to the BULK of her fans, the Punjabi lass has taken the southern Indian film industry by storm. Whether she has a new release or not, one can always find her new photos posted on photo-sharing sites, and it seems, she has the maximum number of her steamy video clips posted on YouTube, compared to most other South Indian actresses. Also, I was surprised to see the WARNINGS that comes up with some of her clips saying that I must be 18 or above to view them, else I may have unexpected aftershocks after viewing them!
