Lovely Shriya Saran went slightly off message recently at an event for Lux soap, for which she is the brand ambassador. When asked what the secret of her beauty was, she attributed it to her regular swimming and yoga. After hasty intervention from one of the organisers, she remembered to say, “Lux is the secret of my beauty.”
Shriya recently showed her commitment to youth and commitment by taking part in a major careers and education event organised by the Times of India in Chennai. She spoke expansively about her own life, the history of cinema and even the techniques involved in framing a scene. “She is one of the few actresses who is a perfect combination of beauty and brains!” said one of the impressed young men in the audience.
Shriya has always had a strong social conscience. As a child, she used to save her pocket money to give to a blind school, so it comes as no surprise that she has participated so freely in the Joy of Giving week. She says she believes whole-heartedly in the theme for the event, “I want people to give whole-heartedly. Joy of Giving Week is one such reason,” she adds.
Shriya is currently working on the Kollywood film Chikku Bukku along with Arya and Amrita Rao’s younger sister Preeti Rao. The film will be partly shot in London.
