Following her stunning transformation from girl next door to Tollywood glamour puss in Adhurs, in which she outplayed even Nayanthara, southern starlet Sheela is being tipped for the top. To celebrate her new-found success, she’s been partying in Dubai with her family. “I chilled out for 10 days in Dubai, turned into a shopaholic, ate some of the most scrumptious meals and partied like there was no tomorrow,” she says.
Her new image has led to a wave of offers but she’s being cautious about what she should choose to do next. “Among the 10 films I was offered, I have signed up one big ticket flick opposite a leading star,” she explains, “I am not in a hurry to sign films as I am just 20 years old.”
Adhurs box office collection, meanwhile, was more than 25cr in the first week alone and looks destined to set new records. The question now is whether the star who always played the innocent village belle in Kollywood movies will now glam-up for the Tamil audience as well. “Many people are asking me whether I will do glamour roles in Tamil films,” she confides, “How can I say no when I will be acting in glamour roles in Telugu films?”
