Shamna Khasim aka Poorna, her film “Jayammu Nischayammu Raa” released today and is receiving good response from the audience. Poorna is seen opposite to comedian Srinivas Reddy in “Jayammu Nischayammu Raa.” Poorna is quite famous in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam films. She made her debut in Telugu with “Sri Mahalakshmi.”
Poorna belongs to an orthodox Muslim family who is very dedicated to their religion. The kissing scene with Allari Naresh in “Seema Tapakai” bought her negative remarks from her family. In a recent interview, the actor said, “My brother works in Saudi Arabia and he watched that film along with friends. He got hurt for that. I know how anyone feels when someone talks negatively about your children. Many people blast me for wearing Bindi on a forehead. Will wearing Bindi for a role makes me a non-Muslim?”
Poorna is known more for her ghost roles. In fact, she got the title, “The Ghost Queen of Telugu films.” She got critical acclaim for her roles in “Avnu,” “Avunu 2” and “Raju Garu Gadhi.” Her recent ghost film “Raju Garu Gadhi” became a huge hit and the second part of the film is on the cards. Akkineni Nagarjuna will be playing an important role in the second part of “Raju Garu Gadhi.”
Poorna acted in about 44 films over Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam languages. We wish the talented actress would appear in more films in the future.
