From Magadheera to Arya 2, the stunning Kajal Aggarwal had taken over Tollywood like the breath of fresh air. The gorgeous beauty was everyone’s favourite and has the credit of working with all big actors down South.

She also has worked with Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn in Bollywood. The actress had carved a niche for herself in a very short span of time and is one of the highest paid actresses. However, she married to her beau Gautam and has been away from movies for quite a while now.

The ‘Darling’ actress completes 16 years in the film industry today. On this special occasion, let’s take a look at some of her best performances and five films that proved why she is one of the finest actresses ever.

Magadheera: After making her debut in an average movie and a string of flops later, Kajal’s breakthrough came with SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster movie Magadheera. Her cracking chemistry with Ram Charan was the major hit. Audience and critics alike praised her performance as the Mithravinda Devi, the queen of Udayghar kingdom, who falls in love with the brave warrior Bhairava (Ram Charan).

Darling: For the first time in her career, the gorgeous beauty appeared alongside Prabhas and fans went crazy for both of them. Many even thought that they were indeed dating each other due to their on-screen chemistry. Kajal delivered a power-packed performance as Nandini, the childhood sweetheart of Prabhas in the movie. The love story went on to become a blockbuster and earned Kajal a nomination for Best actress at the Filmfare Awards.

Mr. Perfect: Again came the blockbuster hit of Kajal and Prabhas, where she essayed the role of a doctor and Prabhas’ childhood friend. The movie also went on to become superhit and Kajal’s performance as a traditional and conservative village woman is still loved by cinegoers even today. The movie got her nominated as the Best Supporting Actress at the Filmfare Awards.

Singham: After winning the hearts of millions down South, Kajal made her big debut with Ajay Devgn in Rohit Shetty’s 2011-film Singham. The movie was a major hit and everyone was in love with Kajal’s performance as Bajirao Singham’s ladylove.

Thuppaki: Kajal is one of the few actresses who has worked with all big stars down South. After romancing all the big stars in Tollywood, she went on to work with many superhit Tamil movies. She starred alongside Vijay in crime-thriller movie Thuppaki and was loved by all. The movie went on to become a huge hit and was remade in several languages.
