Keerthy kicks off her Bollywood debut as a footballer's wife

  • Print


Several south Indian actresses have debuted in Bollywood, thanks mainly to the work they've done in the south. The latest one to join that list is namma Keerthy Suresh, who will be making her debut in the Hindi film industry. And like we said earlier, things fell in place for the actress because of her Telugu- Tamil film Mahanati (Nadigayar Thilagam in Tamil), which turned the tables in her career. Keerthy will be debuting in Bollywood in a film with Ajay Devgn that traces the life and time of Indian football player and coach, Syed Abdul Rahim.
Directed by Amit Sharma of Badhaai Ho fame and produced by Boney Kapoor, the biopic will also chronicle our national football team's glory from 1950 to 1963. While Ajay will essay Syed's role, Keerthy will play his wife in the film. There is a cute love story entwined in the subject.
Ask her about bagging this Bollywood project and Keerthy tells us, "I am elated and honoured to be a part of such a great story. This is a film that will make every Indian proud. I believe this is a story that doesn't belong to any specific region or language of India but is a great Indian story that the world should know." The actress is fluent with Hindi and believes that she can do justice to the role. The film is likely to go on floors in June and Keerthy will be joining the team as soon as they begin filming.
