Shreya, the new sensation of the south after her role in the
blockbuster Shivaji, has accepted to perform an item
number in a Nayanthara starrer film, Tulasi. This is going
to be Shreya's fourth item number in Tollywood in the last one year
and this time she has been paid a hefty sum equal to that of the
film's heroine to perform the same!
It is worth remembering that Shreya's brand equity in Kollywood
is currently very high. At present she is acting in 4 big films
with leading heroes like Vijay, Ajith, Vikram and Ravi.
Venkatesh is playing the lead role in the film Tulasi,
and Bhoopathy Srinivas is directing the film. The film is almost
nearing its completion, and only a few song sequences require to be
shot. The songs will be shot within a day or two at Ramoji Rao Film
City in Hyderabad. It might be recalled that Nayantara had appeared
for a song sequence in Sivaji that featured Shreya and
Rajnikanth in prominent roles.
Meanwhile, Shreya's producers in Tamil are both upset and
shocked that she is doing an item number in Telugu. Only a few
weeks ago, Shreya refused to do an item number in comedian
Vadivelu's big project Indiralogathil Na.Azhgappan.
