Hot and dazzling Shriya Saran, whose marked in Tamil films has taken a beating over the past couple of years, is all set to court a fresh controversy. Sources close to the actress say that Shriya has gone to Sri Lanka to shoot for her upcoming English film titled ‘Winds of Change’, which is being directed by Deepa Mehta of the famous ‘Fire’, ‘Earth’ and ‘Water’ triology.
Even before the storm over actress Asin’s last summer visit to Lanka has settled down, Shriya’s visit, albeit on professional commitment, is less likely to go unnoticed. Shriya was in Chennal over the weekend when she danced along with the ‘King’ Khan (Shahrukh) of Bollywood during the inaugural function to mark to commencement of IPL-IV.

Soon after the programme was over, Shriya left for Lanka the very next day, it is learnt. In fact, she had already been staying in Lanka and made a brief visit to Chennai to perform in the inaugural function of IPL-IV, sources reveal.
In the defensive mode to justify her visit to the Island nation, Shriya has started saying things such as ‘Lanka is a beautiful country with many scenic locales’, etc.
She tweeted, “Sri lanka u’ve been such a fabtastic place!! Love being here n working here..terrific experience. I really like SL.. but not liking the weather so much.. bringing me down : ( feelin a little homesick..not good!!”
It remains to be seen as to how the general public and Kollywood reacts to her visit to Lanka.
