Indian actress Shriya Saran has become a hot commodity since her outstanding performance in the recently released movie "Manam". Rumours are circulating within the Indian film industry that she is contention to star in not one but two movies that are of great interest to several of the top South Indian actresses and these are in addition to the leading lady role that she has reportedly already been offered in the Telugu remake of "OMG - Oh My God".
The talented actress according to Indian film insiders has emerged as a legitimate contender for the leading lady role in the Kannada film "Uppi 2" which will have her starring opposite the already secured male lead Upendra as his romantic interest.
For Shirya Saran the role would represent a comeback for her in Sandalwood but considering how popular she has become it is a move that the entertainment insiders believe will bring viewers to their film and ensure that they have someone with the ability to match the acting ability and presence of Upendra.
She is also in contention for the leading lady role in the remake of the Kangana Ranaut film "Queen" purchased by veteran actor-filmmaker Thiagarajan. There are several other high-profile actresses along with herself that have been discussed as leading lady candidates but one aspect that seems to give her the advantage and cannot be understated is her large fan following in Andhra and Tamil Nadu.
An actress with talent who can bring viewers to the movie theaters is a woman who is loved by filmmakers and there is no question that Shriya Saran is one of the most 'loved' actresses at the moment in the eyes of South Indian filmmakers.
While the producers and directors of "Uppi 2" and "Queen" try to decide which actress will be their leading lady Shirya Saran will be starring in the the Telugu remake of "OMG - Oh My God". The filmmakers associated with this project have identified her as the actress whom they feel has the presence and the dramatic range to act opposite stars Venkatesh and Pawan Kalayn.
Shriya Saran is an in-demand actress in the South-Indian film industry and considering the excitement that comes with the mere mention of her name it looks like she will be a hot commodity for filmmakers and a favourite of movie viewers for a very long time.
