Get Gorgeous winner Priyanka Shah is making her debut as heroine opposite Sibiraj and Kannada actor Vishal Hegde in Kalla Kadhalan, produced by Gaurav Sharma and directed by Ramya. The tall and pretty Priyanka is a Pantaloons Femina Miss India Tourism 2007 winner, Channel V's GetGorgeous winner, Miss India International winner, Zoom Levis divawinner, celebrity PETA activist and the Indian captain of ladies netball team.
Priyanka Shah, a stunning-looking Ex-Miss India, has been cast opposite Sibiraj. Director Ramya, originally called Suresh, has written the story and screenplay for the Vijaykanth - Suriya starrer 'Periyanna', and returns to Tamil after doing a Telugu blockbuster 'Naga'. He has made a script adapting the Ramayana for his film, 'Kalla Kadhalan'.
Ramya said that the film is based loosely on the 'Agaligai' chapter that comes at the beginning of the epic 'Ramayana'. In the mythological 'Ramayana', Agaligai was the wife of Saint Gauthamar, who held her chastity close to her heart and didn't even look up and meet others' eyes, lest her eyes might rest on some other male other than her husband. Indra, leader o the Devas, falls in love with Agaligai and plays a trick, cheats her and manages to breach her chastity. Ramya has made adequate changes in this particular episode to suit today's needs and is making 'Kallakaadhalan'.
Pretty tall (5 ft 9")Priyanka, half-Maharashtrian half-Gujarati, is an engineering graduate and is all excited about taking her first baby steps in Tamil cinema. In ‘Kalla Kadhalan’, Sibiraj plays the role of Indhira, while Miss India Priyanka Shah plays Ahalya. Her husband’s role is played by a popular Kannada stage and film actor H. Vishal. The film will be a take on women’s morality. Priyanka doesn't mind showing skin or body if done aesthetically, but is against vulgarity. She will wear a bikini in the film as she is cool about flaunting her body in a bikini was she has the figure to carry it off. She has worn a swimsuit for the various beauty pageants. The film is produced by Storm Pictures and directed by Ramya. Director Ramya has taken on a portion of the epic to modernize it. The topic in question is morality concerning women, as it is dealt with in the portion involving Ahalya, Indiran and Sage Gauravar in the Baalakandam of Ramayana. Shooting for the movie will begin in early July.
Priyanka has done an acting course at the famous Kishore Namit Kumar acting school in Mumbai. She has also done several modelling assignments and walked the ramp at international fashion meets before taking the plunge into the industry. PETA recently honoured her for my contribution towards animal welfare. -Sampurn Media
