Who can forget the legendary Vijayashanthi who challenged the heroic stereotypes in her heydays, with strong women centric films like her National Award winning film, Karthavyam (1990.) The great star is making her comeback with Anil Ravipudi’s Sarileru Neekevvaru.
Her role as Professor Bharati reminds us Vijayashanthi’s great performance in Pratighatana (1985.) The actress played a rebel for a cause in the 1985 movie as Lecturer Jhansi, who fights politicians who humiliate her in public.
News is, how can big budget producers in Tollywood and outside remain untouched by the Superstar’s re entry. From the time Vijayashanthi is making her comeback with the Mahesh Babu starrer, many producers outside Tollywood like Tamil are excited to cast Vijayashanthi in their films.
However, Vijayashanthi told in a recent interview she is clear about her choice of films and will star only in movies which give her the special place she deserved.
Well, we call this the Sarileru Neekevvaru effect!
