Apparently ‘scared’ by the tag of being the next ‘Revathi’ of Tamil films for her friendly and girl-next-door looks, actress Sri Divya of Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam and Kaaki Sattai fame is said to be making a conscious effort to turn glamourous in her films to release in future.
The actress has only done a handful of films in Tamil but has a huge fan following among college students and youths who love her simple yet attractive looks.
Sri Divya got offers to star in films opposite Vikram Prabhu, Vishnu Vishal, Atharva and Arya but suddenly it appears that offers are no more knocking at her doors. It is stated that Keerthi Suresh is bagging offers which were to have fallen into Sri Divya’s kitty.
Keerthi has just had a solitary release in Idhu Enna Maayam and is awaiting the release in theatres of her Rajini Murugan opposite Sivakarthikeyan which has been delayed beyond reasonable limits in the recent past.
She recently walked out of Mani Ratnam’s upcoming Tamil film citing busy call-sheet schedules as the reason. She has reportedly bagged Dhanush and Sivakarthikeyan’s upcoming films as well.
Sri Divya, who was earlier a star in Tollywood, has been concentrating in Tamil films alone for the past few years. It is said that in order to offset the ‘Keerthi’ factor, Sri Divya has been sending feelers to film-makers that she is ready to shed her ‘homely girl’ image and turn glamourous if the script demanded it!
