Shriya Saran Bhatnagar (pronounced [ʃrɪja səɾən]; (born 11 September 1982) also known as Shriya, is an Indian actress and model who works predominantly in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi language films.
Although Saran aspired to become a well-known dancer, she became an actress with her film debut in 2001 with the Telugu film Ishtam, and had her first commercial success with Santhosham (2002).
Madhesh, who has directed Madhura, Arasangam, Mohini and Mirattal, is now directing ‘Chandakari’. Shriya is playing the female lead in the film, which has importance for the heroine.
“Generally, a Mumbai actress is late for shooting. How about Shriya in your film?” Director Madhesh repliedMumbai heroines are the ones who do the banda. They will be late.
I have heard that they will come with the security forces. I went to sign Shriya as she would be suitable for my story. There was fear within. But I am not shriya like I was afraid of. There is no sophistication either. The security forces did not listen either.
She will come to the shooting on time. There is no trouble. Even if the shooting is over for her, she will not leave the set . She will be watching other actors act,” said Mahesh.
