South Indian heroes are now the biggest stars in Hindi leaving behind all actors except for the Khans, Hrithik Roshan, and Ranbir Kapoor.

They have left an indelible mark on the Hindi film industry, with their movies often dominating the box office. Here are the top 3 Hindi films led by South Indian heroes:

The anticipation for Pushpa 2 is maddening, especially after the success of Pushpa: The Rise. It also left a huge cultural impact with songs like OO Antava Mama becoming a part of the ongoing Lok Sabha elections campaign for many candidates in Hindi belts.

Pushpa 2 is expected to earn Rs. 500 crores from the Hindi belts as there are no films from Bollywod in competition for a few weeks. The film will have an open run for some time.

If the talk is good, 500 crores might not be a tough task.

The film should target a first weekend of a minimum of Rs. 180-200 crores net. The first week should touch 300 crores and a steady run for a few weeks, it will cross 500 crores. Will it break the record of Baahubali 2 will depend on how well the film is received. It can even go beyond Baahubali 2 if public appreciation is there.

The film will target footfalls of 3 crores in Hindi to become a huge blockbuster.

Even with average or mixed talk, the film should cross 400 crores, or else it would be a golden opportunity lost for Allu Arjun.
