Recently, one of the enduring beauties of Telugu Cinema, Shriya Saran confirmed that she’s now part of the prestigious RRR directed by S. S. Rajamouli. By the time Roudram Ranam Rudhiram hits the theatres, Shriya would have completed two decades in the film industry.
Yes. It was in 2001 with the youthful entertainer Ishtam that she made her debut. She has seen several ups and downs in her career but every time that she was thought of as forgotten, she made a sensational comeback. First she reinvented herself with Sivaji when Telugu offers had gone down.
Then when Tamil films seem to have dried up she shot to limelight with Manam in Telugu which remains an enduring classic. Nowadays she might not be doing films regularly but she’s getting plump offers whenever there is a break in her career. And her success ratio is also better in this decade compared to the 2000s when she was actually at her peak as a young actress.
What makes this possible? One reason might be her enduring beauty. She’s one of the gorgeous actresses of her generation and also remains just like when she came into the industry. Another reason is her approachability. As per many sources she’s not a demanding actress who is hard to negotiate. She takes up roles which she thinks suit her. All these make her one of the prime choices to pair up with senior actors like Nagarjuna, Balakrishna, and now probably Ajay Devgn in RRR.
