After her stunning performance in her debut film, Parthipan's Ammuvagiya Naan, Bharathi got a lot of critical acclaim and she was poised to become big.
But unfortunately in Tamil films the heroine's on-screen image especially in her first film is all important. After doing the role of a commercial sex worker in Ammuvagiya Naan, Bharathi found to her dismay that good roles were not coming her way.
When Malayalam superstar Mammootty saw her work, he immediately wanted to cast her in one of his forthcoming films. The latest we hear is that Bharathi is Mammootty's heroine in director Anwar Rasheed's new film Annan Thambi, and the shooting would start by December end. Bharathi's luck may now change as in Malayalam films there is an acute dearth of girls who can emote. The Malayalam superstars are also looking for actresses of substance to be paired with them. It's the right choice that Bharathi has made, as she is now tipped to do a film with Suresh Gopi!
