Telugu actress Ritu Varma rose to fame with Pelli Choopulu, which went on to impress film buffs across the world. In fact, the film became her calling card to step into the Tamil film industry. Her subtle performance in the film made Gautham Menon take notice and sign her up for one of the lead roles in his ongoing film, Dhruva Natchathiram, which has Vikram and Aishwarya Rajesh as the prime cast.
While we were thinking that Dhruva Natchathiram would be her debut in Tamil, she took us by surprise when she was spotted in the trailer of VIP 2, directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth. Her inclusion in the movie was kept under wraps and it looks she may play an extended cameo in the sequel to the super-hit flick Velai Illa Pattadhari, that starred Dhanush and Amala Paul as the leads.
A source in the know tells us that Ritu’s role would be similar to what Surabhi essayed in the prequel. Her character would be significant in helping Dhanush choose his dream job and take the story forward. The actress who is currently in Bulgaria shooting for Dhruva Natchathiram, was unavailable for comment.
VIP 2, which boasts of an ensemble cast including Dhanush, Kajol, Amala Paul and Samuthirakani, will release simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi on July 28....
