While the top actresses continue to shine, there’s a growing breed of young, talented actresses who are making a mark with small films. If Lakshmi Menon‘s (Kumki) talent is being hailed by filmmakers, so is Tulasi Nair‘s (Kadal). However, there are some actresses who are taking it slow and steady in Kollywood. And it looks like the films they are working on could be their big ticket.
Dhansika started out as one among the five girls in Jayam Ravi‘s Peraanmai and only now seems to have got her big ticket with Bala‘s Paradesi. It’s being said that Bala wrote the role with the intention of getting Pooja a National Award but was replaced by Dhansika who has shot sans makeup and sans any training for the role.
And she says confidently, “This role is not anything like what I’ve done before. My look, my body language and even the way I talk, will shock the audience.”
Meanwhile, Bangalore girl Kavya Shetty is quite excited about her Tamil-Telugu debut.
Playing the protagonist in Shivani, she says, “This movie is a romantic horror-thriller and I have a performance-oriented role in this film. I am lucky enough to get such a role. Hopefully, it will do well and I get more offers in Tamil and Telugu.”
Another actress from Bangalore, Sanchita Shetty made her debut in Kollywood two years back in a Jayam Ravi flick but has had a slow growth. She recently signed Soodhu Kaavum by the makers of the hit films, Attakathi and Pizza. “I think I am growing step-by-step. I have listened to more than 25 stories but it depends on what movies you choose to do. I am very happy to have signed this project,” she smiles.
Monal Gajjar‘s a known name in Tollywood what with her recent release, Sudigadu (remake of Tamizh Padam), getting her rave reviews. Now, having signed on Vanavaraayan Vallavarayan in Tamil, she could also be an actress to watch out for in K-Town.
