And moreover in S India actress are supposed to protect their 'pure' on-screen persona, remeber what happened to Kushbu after her comments on pre-marital sex?
I disagree that in south industry, its a lot worse. Infact most of the recent movies recently have heroes and heroines who are complete newcomers and have no "filmi looks" as you might call and they have been huge successes.
Atleast in the south, one doesnt need to have a certain body structure or "perfect body" to become a success. In bollywood, if a heroine with an exception on one or two cannot become a heroine if she is healthier in any way , thats not the case in south with both heroes and heroines as looks does not play an important role in movies at all.
The same khushboo was a big hit with her healthy figure and was appreciated for her acting and accepted well.
People think that south prefer heroines with healthier figures which is not true coz right from revathy, rekha, radha, Nadiya,ambika, kanaga, bhanupriya, sridevi, to the snehas, simran' trisha's, were on top with the likes of khushboos and jyothika who were equally excellent.
I rest my case.

Honestly, if the audience prefers to see certain male actors in movies, thats what the directors/film makers are going to give them
if certain people feel passionate against male dominance then they should do something about it, starting with not calling out female actors if they get wrinkles or are too fat, have horrible dressing sense etc etc
Examples are Vidya Balan, the actress gets so critsized for her style sense, that it overshadows her brilliant acting
I love any women-oriented movie, with a  good scirpt! Maybe thats what bollywood needs to start doing, writing good scirpts that are oriented around females, this way we see more actresses doing their thing
A good example, which i hope lives up to the expectations is, "no one killed jessica" i have a huge feeling that rani & vidya will do great!

Bollywood has always been male dominated and I think Hollywood has took them 82 years to award a female for best director?? and only 4 have been nominated for female best director.
But I have to admit this year for Hollywood it was all about women power..from Mo'Nique to Sandra Bullock to Meryl Streep to Katryn was reining women all along...everyone forgot about the
one thing I appreciate about Hollywood is that age isnt that big a deal..I mean an actress like Meryl Streep STILL gets movies and she excells at them....whereas in Bwood....all they do is praise Rekha?? how about offering her a movie as a lead role or how about giving SRK/Aamir and the likes roles that portray their come SRK/Aamir/Saif/Akki havent played fatherly roles in their new movies? and yet the ladies are always given motherly roles

To be honest we can't simply blame the industry.
The audience reject female-oriented films time and time again.
No One Killed Jessica did fairly well but it should have been a smash hit. 7 Khoon Maaf was below expectations too.

So if the audience are rejecting these types of movies - why on earth would a producer invest in them?

The soultion is to make the female-oriented roles more appealing to the majorly male audience - somehow.
