Film industry is said to be male dominated and once in a while someone comes out in open crying out on the gender inequality in the glamour world. Regarding remuneration and importance, heroes stand very high and heroines are only next to them. Some heroes like Rajnikanth in Kollywood, Mahesh and Pawan in Tollywood, Amitabh Bachan and Salman Khan in Bollywood have larger than life images. Despite their dominance in the industry, here comes one actress who emerged to the top leaving behind the superstars.
Based on the online following of the South celebrities, a list of celebrities who have maximum number of followers on twitter has been prepared. Surprisingly it is Shruti Haasan who is on the top with more then one million followers on twitter. Though in controversies and has no hit in recent days, Sidharth stands only next to Shruti crossing a million followers mark. Trisha is placed 3rd with 8,98,000 followers, next Dhanush with 8,66,000 followers.
Superstar Mahesh is in the fifth position with 8,16,000 followers and larger-than-life Rajnikanth stands in the next place with about 7 lakh followers. Shruti is on the top because she is not only doing South movies but also Bollywood films and she is very active on twitter. Samanta though very active on twitter has very limited followers…around 6 lakhs. Sidharth keeps trending more for controversies than for his films. Mahesh tweets very rarely and Rajnikanth is very irregular in posting updates. Thus, the top position went to a female in a male dominated industry.
