Foraying into the film industry is no small feat, especially when there is talent abundant here. Usually, heroes are the applauded ones and heroines are looked at as just supporting glam dolls. But this trend is seeming to disappear quite increasingly with more and more films being female-centric and the actresses taking up meatier roles.
One such actress that is already experimenting with different genres with each passing film is Pragya Jaiswal who entered the Telugu film industry with her hit film “Kanche.” The movie was directed by the talented Krish Jagarlamudi, wherein she played the role of a princess alongside Varun Tej. The character had many layers, playing a pivotal role in the film. Now Pragya is back with another project in the pipeline that are sure exciting us to no end.
The first of these is her role in famed director Krishna Vamsi’s “Nakshatram” wherein she plays a cop who is out to get the baddies. She kicks, jumps, runs and does whatever it takes to get the job done. And it has been hard we must say from all the stills and kickboxing practice videos she has been putting up from the sets. Such a brave and powerful role has been rarely done by any of the Tollywood industry actresses who usually like to be seen in as pretty a role as possible.
Going from a confident, outspoken princess to a daring cop would sure have been difficult for her, but the young lass didn’t stop there. Pragya is doing yet another film with the maestro K.R. Raghavendra Rao in his upcoming “Om Namo Venkatesaya” (ONV,) in which she is portraying a docile and delicate character. The first look of hers from the film was recently released and people couldn’t have been more astonished as it was completely different from her “Nakshatram” first look. The look in ONV was as beautiful as her look in “Nakshatram” was brave.
Now sources have also told us that she has signed yet another movie titled “Gunturodu” where she is playing a pretty and petite girl next door. Well, that really covers almost all the spectrum, doesn’t it? We cannot wait to see what other shades are there in this talented actress’ kitty! Goes without saying that Pragya is sure trying to break all the boundaries and play with different portrayals.
