History of Telugu films show that actresses who have donned the role of a sex-worker (prostitute) in films have gone on to become big actresses. Anushka, who played one such role in the super-hit film Vedam, went on to star in the film’s Tamil version too (Vaanam) and has now become busier than ever with various projects in Tamil and Telugu and many more in the pipeline.
Sizzling Charmi is the latest actress to be playing a sex-worker in director Chandu’s upcoming untitled film. Chandu, who has made films like Tenth Class and Notebook, was planning to narrate the story of a prostitute and has finalized Charmi to play the lead role in the film of that of a sex-worker.
Says Chandu: “Many popular actresses like Savithri, Jayaprada, Jayasudha, Lakshmi, Sridevi and Anushka have played prostitutes in films in the past. Charmee’s character is not only the most important role in the film but has been scripted in such a manner as to find a lasting place in the readers’ minds. It’s a musical love story between the prostitute and a writer and a singer.
“For the roles of the writer and the singer, I’m looking for talented newcomers. Interested candidates may send their resume and other details to me at my e-mail address at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can personally select the suitable artistes,” concludes Chandu.
