The small girl, who played Suriya’s deaf-and-dumb sister in director Bala’s ‘Nanda’ a few years ago and impressed all with her amazing pair of eyes, has now matured into a beautiful-looking woman in her twenties: yes, we’re talking about Sheela, who was seen last in ‘Vedam’ opposite Arun Vijay last year.
Now a busy actress in Kannada and Telugu, the pretty-looking Sheela says, “I acted in four films in Tamil but couldn’t get the offers as per my wish. Luckily, Tollywood welcomed me with open hands, due to which I have so far acted in 10 Telugu movies. I’m very happy that ‘Adhurs’, my recent Telugu film, has just been declared a hit.
“I have been getting mainly glamourous roles in Telugu. I do accept them to stave off stiff competition and come out triumphs. To succeed in films, I feel a heroine has to be prepared to look and act glamourously. As and when I get a tempting offer, I would return back to Tamil films. I also have a Malayalam film titled ‘Make-up Man’ opposite Jayaram, for which I’d be shooting abroad,” says Sheela.
