Now she has signed the dotted lines to play the role of Tarigonda Vengamamba (devotee of lord Venkateshwara), the popular goddess in Andhra. The film was launched at a recent function at Annapurna Studios in Hyderabad.
Vengamamba lived in the 17th and 18th centuries and was an ardent devotee of Lord Venkateshwara. Her writings, a good mix of revolution and devotion are popular in Telugu literature.
