Keerthy Sureshâ€™s next outing will be Miss India, a Telugu-Tamil bilingual directed by the debut director Narendra Nath. It is an interesting film that will have the award winning actor appearing in multiple looks. Reports are that Keerthy underwent several trials to finalise her look in the film. And that is not all as the actor also took up a crash course in fashion to help her get into the skin of the character that she is playing in Miss India.
Speaking about the actor, director Narendra Nath has said in an interview to the Deccan Chronicle, â€śFor each look, she had around 10 look tests; as there are multiple looks in the film, she had to sit through more than 50 look tests overall to get the right look for her role. And honestly, her knack of effortlessly slipping into the character really surprises me. She was quick to understand the emotional arch her character goes through, and accordingly, got accustomed to the look. She was very patient and never had any airs.â€ť
Keerthy Suresh is also gearing up for her Bollywood debut with Maidaan. She is paired opposite Ajay Devgn in this film directed by Amit Sharma. The film is bankrolled jointly by Boney Kapoor, Akash Chawla and Arunava Joy Sengupta under their respective banners.
