Shriya is making her re-entry in Kollywood through a bilingual project named ‘Chandra’. It is supposedly being named as ‘Chandra’. This ‘Chandra’ is directed by Roopa Iyer.
On confirming the signing of Shriya, Roopa Iyer said, “Yes, we have roped in Shriya who plays the female lead role in our film. This film ‘Chandra’ is a real-life story. It deals with the life of a last generation princess and the love story in her life. Extensive researches have been conducted by me about the lives of the princesses post India becoming a Republic”.
Initially, Divya was roped in this film. She suddenly walked out of the film quoting her dis-satisfaction over the script as the reason. Roopa Iyer said, “Shriya is a very good choice, because she has good appeal in both Tamil Nadu and Karnataka”.
This movie ‘Chandra’ is also the Shriya’s debut movie in a full-length Heroine role in Sandalwood.
