Generally all those actresses who put on lot of weight and still look sexy are called as Mallu Aunties in Tollywood circuit.
Now, the time has come for one such aunty to make a comeback. She is none other than Mantra a.k.a Raasi.
About thirteen years ago, Raasi was the most sought after heroine. But later on, she grew in size and faded away.
While working for the film ‘Oka Pellam Muddhu Rendo Pellam Vaddhu’ she fell in love with assistant director Srinivas and married him to become a housewife.
Later, she wanted Srinivas to become a director and produced two films which literally brought her on roads.
She also started a beauty parlor in Jubilee Hills but that also brought her losses.
So now, after a long gap, Raasi has cut down her flab and is making a comeback with a new film.
She is pairing up with senior actor Rajendra Prasad and PA Arun Prasad is the director. It is heard that she would be seen as Rajendra Prasad’s wife.
Let us wait to see if Raasi’s fortunes change with this venture.
