After doing a girl-next-door act in many movies, Shammu (of Kanchivaram and Mathiyosi fame) is all set to reveal her glamorous avatar soon. The actress is currently busy with Prakashraj’s production venture Mayilu.
“After Kanchivaram, I was stereotyped as a homely girl and a village belle. I didn’t want to get stuck with a particular image. I’m a modern girl in real life, but it’s an irony that I never really had the opportunity to play one onscreen. Unless I do not experiment with my roles, there is a big risk of being branded with a particular tag. And I do not want to fall into the trap,” she said to a leading English daily.
“In my forthcoming film Nellu, I play a college student from a rich and arrogant family. But in Mayilu set in a village backdrop, I play a village belle who falls in love with a Kodangi. These roles are quite challenging and I do want to take up such assignments once in a while. I’m now eagerly awaiting the release of both these films,” she added.
Shammu is all set to make her Malayalam and Telugu debuts soon!
