The pretty Poonam Bajwa is not a very happy girl as her last film ‘Thambikottai’ opposite Naren and starring established stars like Prabhu and Meena failed to set the box-office on fire. The actress had a couple of releases last year in ‘Katcheri Aarambam’ opposite Jeeva and ‘Drohi’ opposite Vishnu. Both the films were average grosser.
In ‘Drohi’, directed by Sudha Prasad, Poonam played the typical commercial heroine’s role as she did in ‘Katcheri...’ too. She was, however, counting a lot on ‘Thambikottai’ which had a substantial role for her and proved her ample scope to display whatever acting credentials she possessed.
Recovering from the non-show of the film, Poonam has now gone ahead and signed up a new film titled ‘Ethiri Enn 3’ opposite Srikkanth, who was her co-star in ‘Drohi’ and was paired opposite Poorna. ‘Ethiri…’ would be an edge-of-the-seat thriller based on a gripping tale, sources close to the actress say.
Director Ramkumar, who would be directing the film, is planning to first shoot a duet song featuring the lead pair. Poonam, who debuted opposite Jeeva in ‘Thenavattu’ and has played the character of a village belle in several movies afterwards, is finally playing her own self: of that of a stylish, urban girl in the film ‘Ethiri…’.
