Actress Shalini Pandey of Arjun Reddy fame has started going places in Kollywood with some promising film offers.
Not often debutant heroines get film-offers lined up for them even before the release of their first film. Shalini Pandey starred with debutant Vijay Devarakonda in last year’s super-duper Telugu hit Arjun Reddy and became an overnight sensation in Andhra Praesh, Telengana and Tamil Nadu. She is now all set to disturb Tamil youths’ hearts by debuting in Kollywood.
Shalini plays G.V. Prakash Kumar’s heroine in 100% Kaadhal (remake of Telugu film 100% Love starring Tamannaah) and Jiiva’s heroine in Gorilla. She is also part of Mahanadhi, the Tamil-Telugu biopic on actress Savitri. The 24-year old Jabalpur-born actress, who is an engineering graduate, has revealed another facet of her multiple personality by crooning a song in a new Telugu film titled as Naa Pranamai.
After speaking in her own voice in her debut film (which had some smooching sequences as well), Shalini is determined to do the same in Tamil too and is taking coaching classes in spoken Tamil. The song sung by Shalini in the Telugu film is to release as a single-track today on the eve of Valentine’s Day!
