South Indian film actress Vimala Raman may be a popular face in Tamil and Malayalam cinema but she has not got her due, when it comes to good roles in movies. Vimala had always been part of films, which only required her to be present as the pretty face, who romances her lead actors. However, that perception might just change this year, as Vimala has embraced herself to be part of a Telugu project, which is being touted as a heroine–oriented film. The project will take off soon.
The film will also see the debut of Suryadevara Prabhakar as a director. He describes that his upcoming film as a thriller. Incidents in the thriller are put together using the staple emotions that are part of any family drama, therefore the audience will not miss out on any particular genre of cinema, said Prabhakar.
2011 is also the year of thrillers for Vimala Raman. While her ambitious Tollywood project is set to go on floors, the actress is also filming for another thriller, which stars Bollywood and Hollywood actors Ashish Vidyarthi and Joshua Fredric Smith respectively. Titled Dam 999, the thriller is expected to hit theaters by April 2011.
