On silver jubilee path

SUPERWOMAN OF Telugu cinema and Lady Amitabh, Vijayashanti is on the threshold of celebrating 25 years of film career. During these years, she has portrayed a variety of roles in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam in nearly 200 films with aplomb. Yet, she feels her career would be incomplete if she does not enact the role of Rani Jhansi Lakshmi Bai. She insists that she will fulfil her wish of portraying her dream role soon. She has plans to take up politics full time after completing 25 years. "The first half of my life I catered to films and I will dedicate my second half to politics," she says. Currently, she is busy with Nayudamma where she plays an underworld don.
