Shriya strides towards success

Shriya Saran has enough reasons to be filled with excitement. The two-year wait for Kanthaswamy is over, with the movie scheduled for release on August 15. Adding to Shriya's joy is news that her movie Cooking With Stella directed by Deepa Mehta will be screened at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. The idea of walking the red carpet along with the acclaimed director is still to sink in for this lass blessed with a charming smile.

But that has to wait while Shriya is keeping her fingers crossed for the outcome of Kanthaswamy. "It was a great feeling, working with a thoroughbred like Vikram who harped on  the importance of improvisation. It was like a give-and-take where he underplayed his emotions in tune with the situation. Being part of a movie of this grandeur is truly a great feeling," said Shriya, sporting a huge smile.

Now that she has done a movie each with Superstar Rajinikanth and the gifted Vikram, Shriya said she could not have asked for more. But then, she secretly nurses a desire to romance Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan on the screen.  If that is wishful thinking, the actress is prepared to bide her time and keep her fingers crossed!
