Model-turned-actresses are dime a dozen in the Tamil film industry. Sources say, Kannada girl Kavya Shetty, who has made the transition from modeling to acting, is set to make her debut in Kollywood.
Sources have it that the ramp and advertisement model, who is looking forward to the release of her maiden Kannada venture, has bagged a role in an upcoming Tamil film.
The film to be directed by Gokul would be a Tamil-Telugu bilingual. While the Telugu version has been titled Shivani, the Tamil version is yet to be named.
Circles close to Kavya said that she is pinning a lot of hopes on her Tamil (debut) film which they pointed out would be a thriller. Also, she is said to be playing the role of a journalist in the movie and would be paired opposite Chandru.
Kavya is hoping to make a strong start in her attempt to play a long innings in Kollywood.
