Daisy Bopanna made her cinematic debut in a de-glamorized role in the Kannada film Bimba (The image), a film directed by Kavitha Lankesh which explored the exploitation of child artistes in the film industry. Bimba was screened in the prestigious Berlin & Frankfurt Film Festival, and had won international awards. It was also screened at the Bangkok Film Festival. But her work in the movie Bhagavan with Darshan earned her the tag of "spicy Daisy".

It was a shock encounter for actress Sameera Reddy in Malaysia when she was threatened and allegedly manhandled by the guards of the Prime Minister of Malaysia. The actress was in Kuala Lumpur shooting for the Saran-directed film Asal starring Ajith Kumar in dual roles.
Reports say, Sameera was not allowed to enter the lift as someone important was travelling up. When she tried to take the next ride up, she was threatened by the guards. Annoyed at this, Sameera was seen shouting at the guards and later she realized that they were the security guards of the Prime Minister of Malaysia. With the intervention of the hotel staff, the actress made a safe exit.
Though Sameera Reddy made her acting career debut in Maine Dil Tujhko Diya (2002), she could not perform in big blockbusters and become a big star. But she got a break in Tamil Cinema when she acted opposite Surya Sivakumar in the hit movie Vaaranam Aayiram directed by Gautham Menon. Sameera's portrayal of the girl Meghna has earned her rave reviews and her performance has been rated as one of her best so far.
Her success in Vaaranam Aayiram got her to Asal, directed by Saran and produced by Prabhu Ganesan and Ramkumar Ganesan of Sivaji Productions. It is reported to be the most expensive Ajith film ever made and is scheduled for release in November 2009.

With Asin, having set a strong foothold in Bollywood with Ghajini, Trisha doing Khatta Meeta opposite Akshay Kumar under Priyadarshan's direction, and Nayanthara trying to move to Bollywood - of course after her Tamil film Aadhavan and a couple of Telugu films to complete - the only heroine that is ruling the roost now in Kollywood is Tamanna, Tamil film industry sources feel. Apart from having a number of films with top heroes like Vijay and Karthi, Tamanna is also considered to be a lucky charm for producers looking for box office moolah because all her recent films have been smash hits.
