MUST READ: Shriya shares unknown incident about Chiranjeevi

Tuesday, September 13, 2016 • Telugu Comments

As Shriya Sharma awaits the release of 'Nirmala Convent' on Sept 16, she sounds pretty confident.  Better known as the child artiste of 'Jai Chiranjeeva' and 'Dookudu', she won the National Film Award for Best Child Artist for her performance in the Bollywood movie 'Chillar Party'.  

A career-focused girl, she juggles studies and movies.  In her interview to IndiaGlitz, Shriya shares an anecdote, saying the experience stayed with her in mind and went on to influence her.

"When I did 'Jai Chiranjeeva', I was 6 years old and Chiranjeevi garu was the first big legend I was working with.  My grandma happened to visit the sets.  Chiranjeevi garu stood up and offered his chair to grandma.  Such a big legend doing such a humble act impacted me a lot.  My parents would tell me many times after that incident that I have to learn great deal from him", Shriya says.

Well, that's Chiru for you!
