The Tamil cinema industry has seen a lot of surprising and shocking combinations in the movies. Some of the combinations work out well and some may not. One of the interesting combinations in the Tamil film industry is pairing the senior heroes. It is exciting to see that the same heroines pair the next generation heroes from the same family. Here are some of those heroines who worked with two-gen actors from the same family:


Radha is one of the versatile actresses in the 80s and 90s. She shared the screen space with Sivaji Ganesan and his son “Prabhu.” In many films, both the dad and son worked together with her. Radha worked with Sivaji in films like Thambathyam and Mudhal Mariyadhai and with Prabhu in many films, including Vellai Roja, Muthu Engal Soththu, Anand, Kairasikaran and Ennuyir Kannamma.


“Ambika,” one of the most sought actresses of her time, is the sister of Radha. Both of them shared the screen space in a few films. Like Radha, Ambika had also worked with Sivaji and Prabhu. She paired Sivaji in Thambathyam and Vazhkai. She paired Prabhu in Ragangal Maruvathillai, Anna Nagar Mudhal Theru, Vellai Roja and many more. Besides these films, Ambika has shared the screen space with these two actors in various movies, not as a pair but in different roles.


“Nayanthara,” the Lady Superstar paired Superstar “Rajinikanth” in “Chandramukhi.” She had also shared the screen space with him in Sivaji, Kuselan, “Darbar” and “Annaatthe.” Nayan had also shared the screen space with another star from Rajini’s family and it is none other than “Dhanush,” the son-in-law of Superstar. She paired Dhanush in Yaradi Nee Mohini.

Trisha Krishnan

Like Nayanthara, Trisha had also paired Superstar Rajinikanth and his son-in-law Dhanush. Before pairing Superstar in “Petta,” directed by Karthik Subbaraj, Trisha worked with Dhanush in “Kodi.”

Shriya Saran

Shriya Saran, the stylish actress, has done a few films in Tamil, yet they are hits. She shared the screen space with Superstar Rajini in the Superhit film Sivaji directed by “S Shankar.” Similarly, she had played the female lead in films Kutty and Thiruvilaiyaadal Aarambam featuring Dhanush.

Keerthy Suresh

Keerthy Suresh, the National Award-winning actress, worked with Dhanush in “Thodari,” directed by Prabhu Solomon. She joined Rajini in Annaatthe. It is exciting to know that Keerthy’s mother, Menaka Suresh had paired Rajini in Netrikann, where Superstar did dual roles. While the father character had Lakshmi Narayan as his pair, the son had Menaka.

Anushka Shetty

Anushka, the talented star, paired Superstar Rajini in “Lingaa” directed by “K S Ravikumar.” She grooved with Dhanush in Sachin Anthem. The song also has Anirudh Ravichander along with them.
