NIZAMABAD: Malavath Poorna, who became the youngest girl in the world to climb Mount Everest at 13 years and 11 months, is all set to don the greasepaint. The 17-year-old girijan girl, who recently scaled Mount Elbrus, the highest peak in Russia and Europe, wants to act in inspirational films. By doing so, Poorna, who belongs to Pakala village of Srikonda mandal in Nizamabad district, wants to popularise government’s welfare schemes as well as the work of NGOs, working for the upliftment of downtrodden classes.

“It’s the age of visual media. Advertisement films and short videos portraying the lives of great personalities are instantly appealing to all. By entering into visual media, celebrities can create some social awareness. Hence, my daughter has decided to act in ad films,” Poorna’s father Devidas, an agricultural labourer, told Express. According to him, Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society (SWRS), which is sponsoring her, did not object to her plans. Hence, he gave his nod.

Poorna was recently signed on as brand ambassador for a Pune-based mineral water company for three years. Having completed her schooling at SWRS in Tadwai, she will join Social Welfare Residential Degree Collage in Domakonda of Kamareddy district.
