As Malayali lass Keerthy Suresh is continuing with her winning streak in Tollywood it seems South Indian directors, especially from Tamil and Telugu filmdom, are vying to sign her up for their new movies.
The bubbly actress, having already acted opposite biggies like Vijay, Surya and Nani, is now all set to act along side super star Pawan Kalyan.
Keerthy who enjoys a strong fan base across South India is currently in news for reportedly refusing to put on some extra weight for an upcoming movie.
She will be portraying yesteryear Telugu actress Savithri, who had ruled the screens during her time, in a biopic. Keerthy is presently undergoing a major makeover to convincingly portray the role of Savithri.
Keerthy has already put on some weight for the role. But it is known that the actress had reportedly said a big ‘no’ to the film’s director who asked her to add a few more extra kilos to perfect the look.
Savithri had once really put on weight amid her career. So, the director of the biopic had asked Keerthy too to do the same for the sake of the movie.
Keerthy had clearly refused the director’s demand as it would be very difficult for her to get back into shape after the filming.
Earlier, Baahubali actress Anushka Shetty too had increased her body weight considerably to play the role of an over sized woman in the Telugu flick Size Zero.
But later, she found it extremely difficult to shed all those extra kilos and tone her body to play the warrior princess in the epic movie Baahubali. Anushka even underwent a surgery abroad to get back into shape.
Looks like Keerthy had taken a cue from Anushka’s experience to flatly refuse adding on weight.
Nag Aswin, the film’s director may now resort to graphics to make Keerthy look chubbier. Actress Savithri was one among the three wives of Tamil super star Gemini Ganesan. Malayali heart throb Dulquer Salman will be playing the role of Gemini Ganesan in the movie.
