Here’s a list of ImdB’s 1o most popular Indian Stars of 2022 according to IMDb that kept us in awe and excitement throughout the year.
2022 was indeed a year for the South Indian film Industry to shine and for its actors to flourish. Dhanush, a prominent South Indian actor, tops today’s list. Dhanush’s work in 2022 involved 5 titles which were the Netflix original The Gray Man, and Tamil releases Maaran, Thiruchitrambalam, Naane Varuven, and Vaathi.
