The latest talk in film circles is that talented and beautiful actress Shriya Saran has become a 'Reserve option' for Senior heroes i.e. when they don't get the heroines they desire, they rope in Shriya ultimately.
Its been 18 years since Shriya made her acting debut and she is still as busy as she used to be in her hey days. During her prime, she acted with all the star heroes of Telugu cinema, both senior and young. After a brief unproductive period, Shriya is back in the game as the backup option for senior heroes.
In the past few years, sort of her Second Innings, Shriya acted with Nagarjuna (Manam), Venkatesh (Gopala Gopala) and Balakrishna (GPSK and Paisa Vasool). She wasn't the first option in none of these movies. When the makers fail to rope in the actresses opposite senior heroes, they knock the door of Shriya who readily signs as she has no qualms in playing even middle-aged wife, mother of young kids type of roles.
The latest we hear is that after several actresses turned down the role of leading lady in Venkatesh's film to be directed by Teja, Shriya has been approached. We have recently reported that the heroine in this needs to play the role of mother of two kids, the primary reason for rejection by several actresses. Shriya doesn't have such reservations so she may hop on board.
We will however have to wait for an official confirmation.
