spotlight nowadays for heroines seems to be focussed on how little
they wear rather than their acting skills. Bollywood has got the
bikini act down pat with heroines in hot pants and mini skirts
cavorting in picturesque foreign locations drawing in the crowds at
the box office. The more conservative South Indian film industry
has followed suit, but slowly.
The first to shock the world was Nayantara's now famous
bikini-clad strut in Billa (2007). Then we heard that
Anushka was prepared to do the same in the Telugu remake of
Billa starring Prabhas 'as the role demanded it'. Now
Priyamani, another top heroine of the Telugu film industry and a
National Awardee, is following this beaten path and is rumoured to
have agreed to don this enticingly tiny costume in her forthcoming
Drona starring Nitin.
The buzz in the industry is that Priyamani has already shot for
a steamy song sequence in this tantalizing costume as 'the story
demanded it'. Sources have also confirmed that another hot song is
being picturised on Priyamani at Lahari Resorts near Hyderabad.
Drona, starring Nitin is being produced by D.S. Rao and directed
by Kumar, S.S. Rajamouli's apprentice.
