Shamna Kasim, the actress who hopes to have an image breaking role soon, says that the directors in Malayalam movie industry are reluctant to cast talented Malayali actresses and opt for other language heroines.
The actress-dancer opened up her deep disappointment over the M'town directors, in a recent interview. Shamna says that she has been receiving more good offers from Tamil and Telugu movie industries.
Shamna has recently alleged that director Rajesh Pillai cheated her by chopping off her portions from the latest movie Mili. The actress claimed that she had an important role in the script; but it was later reduced into a minimal role.
According to Shamna, the director even refused to shoot her portions in the allotted dates and she was forced to spend almost 2 weeks in the sets of Mili, without work.
But some other sources suggest that Shamna demanded for another role in the movie; to the much displeasure of the director. But Rajesh Pillai and producer of Mili, hasn't commented on the issue yet.
Shamna, on the other hand, is busy with her other language projects and dance programmes. The actress says that she plans to take a break from M'town, to avoid stereotyped roles.
