Trust us, it's not that hard to find 5 hot Tamil actresses. The Tamil people are an ethnic group local to south India and northeastern Sri Lanka; the rise of Bollywood and Western media interests in the area has given the Tamil people a new voice in film and television. Tamil actresses, as beautiful as they may be, join in those ranks. Whether or not you like these Tamil actresses in particular, the future of the global Indian media presence remains to be seen.
