Sanchita Shetty, who recently featured in Pizza has been signed to play the lead role in Director Nalan's debut film, Soodhu Kavvum. She will be paired opposite Vijay Sethupathi and the film will once again be producers by the makers of Pizza and Attakathi.
Sanchita says, "I play the role of a dream girl, someone who every boy vies for. I've been playing a village belle for a while now. But, this role is going to change my onscreen image in the industry and I am definitely looking forward to that. I'm happy to work with an interesting team this time - Nalan is an award-winning short filmmaker, and Vijay has proved himself in the industry. I will start shooting for the film from next month."
The actress has already been part of Thillalangadi, alongside Jayam Ravi and Tamannah; and Kollaikaran, with Vitharth. Looks like she will be another Kannada actress making a serious entry into Kollywood, which is filled with non-Tamil actresses these days.
