Tollywood and Gender disparity

Something interesting that occurred to me a few days ago while there was some discussion about movies.  There are hardly any heroines in Telugu movies from the Telugu soil!! Most of them, especially those in blockbusters and hit movies, are all from out of Andhra and Telangana.  Some of them can hardly speak Telugu.

Contrast this with the actors playing heroes.  None from out of the Telugu states!!

Clearly shows the gender disparity in our culture and attitude.  Why do none of the Telugu families promote their daughters to join Tollywood? Even those of established celebrities?? One hardly hears anything about the daughters of celebrities; while sons are forcefully pushed into the limelight.
