What do you call as screen presence? The ability of an actor to make their presence felt irrespective of the role they are playing or the footage length they get. Some veterans like Rekha, Prakash Raj or thespians like Thilakan command your attention when they are on screen even for few seconds. Sometimes some newcomers manage to garner your attention so that you start watching out for them. Recently I came across a couple of newcomers who managed to grab my attention.
Parineeti Chopra - Even when this girl was grabbing all the awards for the Best Newcomer, I never looked at this girl seriously. When I heard that she is the cousin of Priyanka Chopra I felt like these awards were rigged. But I happened to watch "Ladies v/s Ricky Behl" on the return flight from Lagos, I sat through this tedious movie for only one reason - Parineeti Chopra. As a dumb Punjabi girl Dimple, she was simply outstanding with the garish costumes and the bimbette act. Don't know whether this is a fluke chance or she really has that potential, but as of now Parineeti managed to make an impression.
Yami Gautam - I heard about Yami Gautam from the Kannada film 'Ullasa Utsaha' opposite Ganesh. The media was unanimously praising about the serene smile of Yami and also didn't forget to mention about the lack of acting skills. When I saw her in 'Vicky Donor' I was carried away by her killer smile and graceful portrayal of Ashima. Still I hadn't seen any of the impressive histrionics (I doubt if she has any acting skills), but managed to impress me even for a brief moment.
Akila told that "Appa list-la aduttha Vidya Balan vandhachu (There is a new Vidya Balan in my favourite heroines' list)". No... there is a huge long way these girls have to go to get into the league of Revathy, Meera Jasmine, Vidya Balan. So as of now my favourite heroines list is upto Vidya Balan ONLY.
