Always wanted to begin acting career with a Malayalam movie, says Kalyani Priyadarshan.
We have seen star kids like Dulquar Salman, Gokul Suresh, Kalidas Jayaram etc making their hero debut here in Mollywood. Pranav Mohanlal and Sravan Mukesh too is making their hero debut here. Following the trend, Kalyani Priyadarshan, the daughter of Master Director Priyadarshan is making her debut as heroine as well. But she is not making her debut here in Mollywood. She will be making her debut in Tollywood playing the female lead opposite Akhil Akkineni. She says that she always wanted to make her debut here in Malayalam.
But when a person like Nagarjuna asked her to do a film in Telugu and that too as the female lead opposite his son, she says she can’t refuse that offer. She said that she also wanted to become a director and she assisted Anand Shankar in the previous film of his with Vikram, titled Iru Mugan. Her debut Telugu film is directing by Vikram Kumar who had directed the Suriya Starrer super hit Tamil movie named 24. Vikram Kumar had assisted Priyadarshan in the Malayalam blockbuster named Chandralekha starred by none other than Mohanlal.Kalyani’s mother Lissy was also a popular actress here in Malayalam and she acted in Priyadarshan movies before they got married. Priyadarshan had made the all-time blockbuster Oppam last year with Mohanlal and he is now busy with the Tamil remake of Maheshinte Prathikaram.
