IMDb, the movie-content site, has released the list of Top Stars of Indian Cinema for the year 2017. Not so surprisingly, Prabhas at No. 6 and Anushka at No. 8 have featured in the list. And, very surprisingly, Tamannah at No. 4 is above her Baahubali compatriots.
"Prabhas mesmerized audiences as Amarendra and Mahendra Baahubali in the highly anticipated Baahubali 2: the Conclusion, the final installment of director S.S. Rajamouli's inter-generational saga. To transform into a legendary warrior, Prabhas intensively trained for months and reportedly gained over 40 pounds to get the look right. In 2018, we're looking forward to seeing him in Saaho," IMDb's description goes.
Anushka Shetty had a busy year with roles in big budget movies like Singam 3, Om Namo Venkatasaya and most notably as the fearless arrow-slinging princess Devasena in Baahubali 2: the Conclusion. Of the actors in our top 10 countdowns, Shetty has moved up the most number of IMDb StarMeter ranks in the last year," the testimony about the Sweetie reads.
With over 50 credits to her name, Tamannaah Bhatia rose in popularity as Avantika in the Baahubali 2: the Conclusion and Ramya in Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan. Next year, Bhatia is set to star in director Kunal Kohli's first Telugu-language project Love Otsavam, Pon Ondru Kandan and Sketch opposite Vikram," it says about the heroine of Kalyan Ram's 15th movie. Tamannah is just after the three Khans in the list topped by SRK.
