Are Actresses Like Priyamani Finding Roles Hard To Get?
Tollywood is not an industry that needs a lot of strong actresses. The industry is still heavily loaded in favour of heroes so actresses like Priyamani are finding it tough to get interesting roles. She was getting good roles in Tamil cinema that was then dubbed into Telugu. But after almost a year, dusky actor Priyamani is all set to sign not one but two big-ticket Telugu films. The actress was busy doing Kannada and Malayalam movies and took a break from Tollywood, with claims that she wasn’t receiving any ‘exciting’ offers. Missing from Hyderabad for many months, she was back for a few days to promote her latest film ‘Charulatha’, which also released in Telugu. “I am tired of my repeating myself in Telugu, only an exciting role could beckon me,” she said. It seems that her statement spread like wild fire and two big producers have approached her. “We have received a couple of offers but we’ll let you know once we sign on the dotted line,” says a source. She will probably stay away from female-centric roles since ‘Kshetram’ tanked at the box office, and would prefer to share screen space with stars like Balakrishna instead.
