If she hasnít been taking calls, Shriya Saran is quick to assure us that itís not because sheís been dodging the media. Itís just that she has been very busy travelling for her shoots and have had no time to catch up with anyone. She was in San Francisco for a while, then came down to Mumbai, after which she left for Istanbul and now again, she is off to Chennai, says Shriya.
Of course, the success of Sivaji has been sweet even she didnít get tickets for it and that too in Mumbai and Shriya has been flooded with offers from some of the countryís biggest filmmakers. But she is aware that expectations have risen, so she is very choosy about what she picks. She expects things get bigger than Sivaji after this, she says.
And now Shriya has been offered a film by one of the biggest entertainment banners in Hollywood Ashok Amritrajís production company. Down south too, Shriya is hot property. Her recent film, Azhagiya Tamizh Magan with Vijay has re-affirmed her position as the top heroine in the Tamil industry. The success of Sivaji has fetched her a lot of acclaim even in B-town, says Shriya. After Awarapan, sheís now doing Apoorva Lakhiaís Mission Instanbul and Ek opposite Bobby Deol. She plays a television journo in Mission Istanbul and it was so much fun. Apoorva asked me to watch lots of TV, which was the best part, and I had to meet lots of television folk. She star opposite Zayed Khan and heís such a dedicated guy. Vivek Oberoi and Abhishek Bachchan are also in the film, she says.
