Shveta Reddy, a model-turned-actress is all set to enter tinsel town. This newbie has chosen Tamil over Kannada to kick start her career. Shveta is from Coorg and has moved to Bangalore to enter showbiz with Tharkapul directed by Ravi.
“I looked for a good launchpad for myself and I felt Tharkapul was the right choice. I have got an opportunity to play the lead with a known actor in Kollywood, whose name I am not supposed to reveal right now. He is the son of a famous director who does movies in all South Indian languages. I would have got a Kannada film, but it wouldn’t have been a good start for me. So I decided to take up this project.
I hope to get better opportunities here after my first film in Tamil,” she says. A BBM graduate, Shveta made sure she got short-term experience before entering the glam world. She took up theatre, walked the ramp and did advertisements. Her portfolio reached a Tamil director, who chose her for the debut role. “It is a cop film. My portions will start from June, for which I need to be in Chennai,” she says.
