Her dusky beauty has many takers and her acting skills are bonafide.
When she made her acting debut, she was touted as the next big thing and Ilayathalapathy Vijay compared her looks to Asin but sadly something has kept Poorna alias Shamna Kasim from getting her due.
Poorna has done seven films in Tamil in the last five years but is yet to break into the big league. She blames her image and some wrong choices in the start of her career. “I guess you need to be perceived as a commercial star and if you have not had start with that image, people put you in a box and limit your chances. It is difficult to break images in the industry”. Says Poorna.
Confessing that she is a huge fan of Nayanthara, Poorna quips: “What I need right now is a big commercial hit. I had two back to back releases- Jannal Oram last week and Thagararu this Friday. I am keeping my fingers crossed and hope that Thagararu will take me to the next level”.
For someone who is keen to go the commercial way, we wish her all the best.
