Idea of working in a Telugu film was amazing: Shirley

Singer and YouTuber Shirley Setia is all set to make her screen debut in Tollywood.

She was signed for the leading lady role in young hero Naga Shaurya’s 22nd film under the direction of Aneesh Krishna.

When asked about her first reaction, Shirley said, “Even though I don’t understand the Telugu language, I do watch a lot of south Indian films and they are fascinating. So the idea of working in a Telugu film was amazing and I’m super excited.”

About this opportunity, Shirley added that director Aneesh watched my YouTube videos and he approached me.

“I heard the script of the film through a video call and I got hooked to it. Immediately I have confirmed doing this film. I can’t wait to get started,” said Shirley.

On her singing and acting careers, the Auckland based popstar said, she always wanted to be an actor and studied at New York Film Academy.

“Destiny has something else for me, so I became a singer first and now an actress. Yet my wish is coming true and ever since my Telugu film announcement, I’ve been receiving a lot of love from fans in Hyderabad,” said Shirley.

The shooting of #NS22 will start rolling from December first week.
