Tamannaah proud of her southern co-stars

Chennai, June 22 (IANS) Actress Tammannaah Bhatia, who forayed into Hindi filmdom with "Himmatwala", is happy for all the southern actors, including the latest Dhanush, who have come into Bollywood and made a name for themselves.

"When I see Dhanush, Shruti (Haasan) or Ileana (D'Cruz)...they are all shining, and I feel so happy. They are all my friends and I have met them. It's really nice to see them doing well and I am very proud of them," the actress said here at the press conference of the 60th Idea Filmfare Awards 2012 recently.

"I really wish them a great career ahead because they are very good actors and very deserving," added Tammannaah, who made her acting debut in 2005.

Meanwhile, Tammannaah is glad how Indian cinema is becoming global.
