These 4 South Stars Have Been Lighting Up Indian Web Series

If you’ve been watching dubbed or subtitled versions of movies in southern languages, then you’re familiar with these stars. They’re big down south and, with the boom in Hindi streaming content, they’ve forayed into web series. Here are four south stars who’ve made a mark in Hindi television. The good part is that three of them are in one show.

Neeraj Madhav in ‘The Family Man’

Neeraj Madhav is an actor, rapper and dancer predominantly known for his work in Malayalam cinema. He has featured in films like Drishyam, 1983 and Oru Mexican Aparatha. His role of Moosa Rehman in Amazon’s The Family Man was greatly appreciated by the audience, and he will be seen again in the second season that releases this year.

Nithya Menen in ‘Breathe: Into The Shadows’

Actor and singer Nithya Menen has been a part of Malayalam, Telugu, Tamil and Kannada films since 2006 and has been the recipient of three Filmfare awards. She made her Bollywood debut in 2019 with the Akshay Kumar-starrer Mission Mangal, and her digital debut last year opposite Abhishek Bachchan in Amazon Prime Video’s psychological thriller Breathe: Into The Shadows. She plays Abha Sabharwal, a doting mother whose child gets kidnapped. She will go to any length to get her daughter back. Read our review of the series here. In an interview, Menen revealed that she’s also working on a Telugu web series for Amazon Prime Video, as well as the next season of Breathe.
