With her performance in 'Mahanati', a biopic of legendary actress Savithri, Keerthy Suresh has won immense praise from the viewers and the rewards may continue to pour in the form of 'best actress' awards this year. Given the kind of character she played, Keerthy was hoping that she would get more such roles after Mahanati. But, since it is a glamour dominated field, the makers continued to prefer her for glamorous roles only.
Though she's continuing to take up the regular commercial films in Kollywood, Keerthy is being selective about her stories in Telugu. In fact, she has rejected all the stories that reached her. But, the effort she put in for Mahanati is likely to be paid off soon. Impressed with her brilliant act in Mahanati, Bollywood filmmaker Nagesh Kukunoor has roped in Keerthy Suresh for his next Hindi film. Though it'll be made in Hindi, the movie is expected to have a simultaneous release in Telugu and Tamil as well considering the popularity of the actress down South.
Keerthy has presented her acting chops quite impressively in Mahanati and the lead actress in my story also should deliver such an arresting performance, opined Nagesh. Now that Keerthy has agreed to be part of this movie, she is getting ready to give her bulk dates to it and adjusting her schedules for other agreements.
