She Reads South Asia

I haven't mentioned much on India's cinema Tollywood (Telugu language) only because I've only seen one film (more than once) from there, namely 'Aarya' starring Allu Arjun. It is in the Telugu language, so of course I needed the subtitles but it was a really great movie. As a matter of fact, it was the biggest and best blockbuster film for Tollywood in 2004!

I'll post the link to my review of 'Aarya' as soon as it goes online.

Allu Arjun

It was Arjun's second film as the hero. His debut film was 'Gangotri', which marked his place in Tollywood. He has also starred in the films 'Happy' and 'Bunny'. His next ventures are Desa Muduru, which is in the shooting process now and 'Veera', which has just been announced.

His earlier (non-hero) films were 'Daddy' and 'Vijetha'

Arjun was the winner of the Santosham Best Young Performers Award and the Nandi Award for Special Jury Award for 'Aarya' and the Santosham Best Young Performers Award for 'Bunny'.
