Reportedly, a popular Telugu filmmaker has initiated talks with the family of Soundarya to get their nod on the biopic. Apparently, Sai Pallavi has been approached to play the titular character and if everything goes as per plan, she might give her nod soon. The makers of the project are yet to make any official announcement. Rumours are rife that an announcement can be expected to be made early next year.
Born on 18 July 1972, Soundarya made her acting debut at the age of 20 with the Telugu film Manaravali Pelli and went on to star in several Telugu, Tamil, and Kannada films over a span of a decade. In her prime, she worked with all the leading male stars across all southern industries. She even worked with megastar Amitabh Bachchan in Sooryavansham, her lone Hindi outing. She had also starred in two Malayalam films.
