Shriya Saran is probably the most ‘academically’ competent actress around in Kollywood. Not many are aware that the actress, who possesses an enviable curvaceous figure and a voluptuous body, also scores heavily when it comes to delivering lectures at the country’s leading management institutions.
Shriya’s Kollywood innings, though, is on a sticky wicket at present. Her much-awaited Rowthiram opposite Jiiva didn’t click in a big way and this has put her career at crossroads. She is said to have agreed to do an ‘item’ number along with Reemma Sin for ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram’s upcoming film Rajapattai.
She has also completed her latest Hollywood film which is awaiting its release. A regular at almost all the filmy events, Shriya lives by her own principles and won’t compromise them. A leading breweries manufacturer approached the actress to star in an advertisement to promote one of their liquor brands. Though she was offered an unspecified huge sum, the actress has turned down the offer.
Advertisements usually fetch quite a huge sum for actresses over a period of a few days unlike in films. She was reportedly offered Re.1 crore to promote the liquor brand which she has flatly refused. “Money isn’t important to me but my principles are more important; I’d never act against my conscience,” says Shriya!
Let’s salute her spirit!
