Priyamani will be seen next in 'Chennai Express'
It has been a roller coaster ride for Priya Vasudev Mani Iyer aka Priyamani in tinsel town. The dusky damsel from Palakkad, who started her filmy career with Bharathiraja's 'Kangalal Kaidhu Sei' (2004), had to wait for three long years to make it big.
Post-'Paruthiveeran' (2007), Priya has been Happening! She has succeeded in striking a balance between glam shows (such as 'Drona' and 'Golimaar') and award-baits (such as 'Thirakkatha' and 'Chaarulatha'), which is quite a feat for an Indian mainstream actress.
After conquering the south Indian film industry, Priyamani is now gearing up for her debut Bollywood item number ("1 2 3 4 Get On The Dance Floor") in 'Chennai Express'.
Here are some exclusive snaps of the Southie bombshell.
