METRO PLUS

In a new role

SHREYA REDDY, whose `Connect' on SS Music is a big hit, is popular in Kerala. Recently in a poll conducted among students in Kochi, she was chosen as the most popular VJ. Now, she has been signed by director Ranjith for his next film, "Black" opposite Mammootty. Shreya, who had a disastrous film debut in Telugu, is excited about this film. She says, "It's a de-glamorised role of a girl on the run from Chennai to Kochi. I speak English and Tamil. But I have no romantic scenes with the hero." Shreya's role is pivotal to the story. She says: "It is thanks to television that I landed such a meaty role."
