Juliana a.k.a. Julie, nurse-turned-television anchor-turned actress of ‘Bigg Boss’ fame, is all set to make her debut in Tamil films as a solo heroine with an upcoming film titled as Uththami.
Almost all the 10-odd participants of last year’s hugely popular reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ (hosted by Kamal Haasan for more than three months for Vijay TV) have become hugely popular after the show and have landed up various commercials and film offers in their kitties. Oviya Helen a.k.a. Oviya turned out to be a huge beneficiary with many plum commercials and a few film offers.
Julie, who had taken part in last January’s Jallikkattu protest, became a huge celebrity (albeit with controversy) during the show. She later landed up the offer of a television anchor and has been hosting a children’s reality show for a television channel. She appeared in a couple of commercials and played a small role in Mannar Vagera which hits the screens today ahead of Pongal.
Uththami is produced by K7 Productions and has Julie opposite ‘public star’ Durai Sudhakar of Juliyum Naalu Perum and Thappattami fame. Julie plays a socially conscious girl who takes up a prominent issue to fight for people’s rights.
Is it so?
