Big heroes or small heroes, no rules for them!

Usually, star actresses who are paired up with superstars don't show interest in acting opposite medium-range or small heroes. However, Pooja Hegde and Rashmika Mandanna are exceptions to this norm.

After NTR's 'Aravindha Sametha' and Mahesh Babu's 'Maharshi', Pooja is doing Allu Arjun's 'Ala Vaikunthapuramulo'. She is also Prabhas' romantic interest in 'Jaanu'. But acting opposite the four huge stars hasn't stopped her from accepting a role opposite Varun Tej in 'Valmiki' and Akhil in Bommarillu Bhaskar's untitled film.

Rashmika is doing a film each opposite Mahesh Babu ('Sarileru Neekevvaru') and Allu Arjun (Sukumar's untitled film). This has not stopped her from accepting 'Bheeshma' (opposite Nithiin) and 'Adhe Nuvvu Adhe Nenu' (opposite Naga Chaitanya).

This is not entirely new. Rakul Preet Singh did a film opposite a Bellamkonda Srinivas at a time when she was doing a film each opposite NTR, Ram Charan and Mahesh Babu.

This is a healthy trend. At a time, Tollywood is facing severe crisis of notable female faces, the decision by Rashmika and Pooja Hegde augurs well for the industry.
