Keerthi Chawla’s case is a strange one. The Mumbai girl, who is as beautiful and as talented as other Punjabi actresses trying out their luck in Kollywood and Tollywood, finds herself frequently out of job with no offers pouring in.
The actress last release in Tamil was the moderately successful ‘Uliyin Osai’ which released more than an year ago. The film, a period type one, had Keerthi in a significant role but her subsequent films bombed and left her looking for that ‘elusive’ big hit to sustain herself in the industry.
Keerthi knows for sure that it’s of paramount importance to stay in the news and keep appearing in films to be remembered by the public and fans who would otherwise forget her name. She has, therefore, gone ahead and agreed to perform an ‘item’ number in AVM’s ‘Mudhal Idam’, which stars Vidharth, the star of the successful ‘Mynaa’ in the lead.
Chawla wasn’t upset at the fact that even for this ‘item’ number, she wasn’t the first choice. The makers tried some other ‘item’ girls and heroines before zeroing in on Keerthi Chawla who immediately agreed as she was not left out with many choices either: the shooting commenced the next day she agreed!
Unit sources say that Keerthi has done a ‘wonderful’ job in the ‘item’ number!
