Big news in Indian cinema! The special 1000-crore club, where movies make a ton of money, is getting bigger. In the last year, four movies joined this special club. And right now, two more movies are close to joining, making it a big change in Indian movies.

Actresses like Deepika Padukone, Nayanthara, and Srinidhi Shetty have been in movies that made more than 1000 crores. But the first leading lady to do this might surprise you.
