February 24, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): South Indian actress Priyamani has signed Ram Gopal Varma’s multilingual film ‘Rakta Charitra’. She will be paired opposite the Southern superstar Surya in the film. The film has reportedly been shot in three different languages– Hindi, Tamil and Telugu simultaneously. The film is reported to be made in two parts with Vivek Oberoi dominating the screen space in first part while Surya will gain more prominence in the latter part.
Rakta Charitra has invited curiosity due to it being based on the life of the slain political leader Paritala Ravindra.
It is a highly prolific period for the pretty Southern actress, Priyamani. She certainly received rave reviews and numerous accolades for her astounding performances in Balu Mahendra’s ‘Adhu Oru Kana Kaalam’, Ameer Sultan’s ‘Paruthiveeran’ and Malayalam movie ‘Thirai Kadha’. Now, she has been offered to essay one of the lead roles in the highly awaited ‘Raavan’, ace director Mani Ratnam’s bilingual film. Of course, it’s a double treat for the actress as working in Mani Ratnam’s film happens to be the cherished dream of every actor in Kollywood. The film will mark her debut in Bollywood as well.
