Tamannaah happy to be part of Sye Raa


It is unfair that the career of a heroine is judged on the basis of her age, while it never happens with male actors, says Tamannaah. Almost a year after the release of Baahubali, Tamannaah was seen in Na Nuvve, but it tanked at the box office.

The actor was seen in special numbers and she has done Sketch in Tamil with Vikram. Unfortunately, even that film couldn’t garner any collections at the box office. Back-to-back flops have made many critics say that her film career is over. Talking about the comments she has been receiving and the stories she has been reading about herself, the actor says she’s happy that people want to know what she’s doing.

“I take it in a sportive way. Thanks to those who said that every time I’m in headlines, I am getting more number of projects to do. Actors like Kareena Kapoor, Rani Mukherji and others are acting and doing really well even after their marriage. So, trying to decide the career of an actor with her marital status and age has to change and people have to come out of that frame of mind,” said Happy Days actor.

Tamannaah’s upcoming film Next Enti is releasing on December 7 and she plays one of the leading ladies of the film. In this film, she shares the screen space with , Navdeep and Larissa Bonesi.

“In this film, you will see the leading lady talking about sex and love, which is rare. Talking about these topics on big screen is still a taboo even after our films are doing well globally too. This role is very close to my heart and I can relate to it personally. So, I insisted on making the name of the role Tammy, which is my pet name actually,” said the actor who made her acting debut in Telugu with Sri.

Tamannaah will next be seen in Sye Raa and she is happy that she has paired with Chiranjeevi for the first time. She is also playing the lead role in That is Mahalakshmi, which is an official Telugu remake of Bollywood movie Queen. Besides these, the actor is also shooting for F2-Fun and Frustration, which is releasing on Sankranti and in Devi 2, the AL Vijay directorial which has Prabhudheva. With more than five films in her kitty, Tamannaah is pretty  confident that she is back to her busy mode of working.
