Tamanna's celluloid attempts like Chand Sa Roshan Chehra in Hindi, Sri in Telugu and Kedi in Tamil did not give the actress (whose name means desire in Sanskrit), the expected visibility in South Indian filmdom. But Happy Days did wonders for her career and boosted her into the A-grade of heroines. She is now following in the footsteps of Bhavana, Asin and Sheha, who have started dubbing in their own voices and is learning Tamil with this goal in mind.
Happy Days director Shekar Kammula had advised Tamannaah to not just act in the scenes, but to get in the skin of the character and become attached to it. She followed his advice and her acting was delightfully refreshing. The movie"s super-hit status turned out to be yet another plus in her career chart.
Kalloori was a simple movie and also gave her the reputation as an actress who could perform demanding roles. Tamanna's star is rising rapidly in the world of films. In Kollywood, she is doing Ayan opposite Suriya, Padikathavan with Dhanush and Aanandha Thandavam with a new face. In Tollywood too she is quite busy with movies opposite Allu Arjun and Siddharth. She is also learning Telugu to dub in her own voice for her next Telugu flick.
