Vijay, Ajith and Suriya
Ormax Media, one of the leading consulting firms, comes up with data related to popularity of actors from various films industries, on a monthly basis. They have now curated the list of top 10 popular Tamil actors in the month of May. Though most of them have retained their positions from April, the popularity factor of a few stars has changed because of a few reasons. Going by the list, it is clear that the criteria used to analyze these stars' popularity isn't mere fan base alone. Check out the latest top 10 stars of Kollywood.
Though the star's recent outing Beast opened to mixed reviews from movie buffs and critics, the film went on to collect around 200 crores. Ormax Media rates him as the number one Tamil star in terms of popularity. His next release, Thalapathy 66, will hit the screens on 2023 January.
Ajith has also retained his second position from last month. After his 2022 release Valimai did not meet the expectations of fans, all eyes are now on AK 61 which is expected to hit the screens for Deepavali. Fans are expecting nothing short of a blockbuster from the heist thriller.
Suriya, too, has managed to retain his third position for the second continuous month. His Etharkkum Thunindhavan might not have impressed the audience, but his performance in the recent outing Vikram left everyone spellbound. His popularity is likely to go up in the next month.
Though the success of Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal cannot be attributed to him alone, it was a much-needed hit for him as he delivered a few flops in the last year. His performance as the antagonist in Vikram is expected to elevate his popularity in the coming month.
The huge success of Don, which was co-produced by him, has made him one of the bankable stars of Kollywood. This is his second continuous blockbuster in the pandemic era. With a few promising films in his kitty, he is already considered as the next big thing.
The Superstar of Tamil cinema is expected to join the shooting of his next outing, Thalaivar 169, in a couple of month's time. With his last release, Annaatthe, being a disappointment for his fans and the trade, the industry is eagerly looking forward to his next release.
Vikram's Amazon Prime Video release Mahaan opened to positive response from his fans and other movie buffs. But his fans are waiting for a huge theatrical hit for the versatile actor. They have pinned high hopes on his next release Cobra which is arriving in August.
Kamal Haasan is at eighth position this month in terms of popularity, but it is highly likely that the legendary actor-filmmaker will better his position in the next month, thanks to the gargantuan success of Vikram which is nothing but a spectacular comeback for him.
With three back-to-back OTT releases, which didn't earn him much mileage, fans of Dhanush are now keeping their fingers crossed for his next release Thiruchitrambalam. The multi-faceted actor has a few promising projects in his kitty.
Silambarasan, who made a smashing comeback with Maanaadu, has a few films in his kitty. Gautham Menon's much-awaited family action drama Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu is his next release. The actor is currently at tenth position in the top 10 popular Tamil actors.
