New kid on the block

Kamala Deepika, a second year engineering student who was crowned the second runner-up in the Miss South India and Miss Tamil Nadu beauty pageants is making her debut in tinsel town with the film Mr and Mrs, directed by Badri.

With several ad campaigns like Kumaran Silks, Kodak, Vummudi Jewellers, Meera herbal products, to her credit, Deepika decided to enter a beauty pageant. Badri saw her at the contest and offered her the heroine’s role.

Talking about her role, she says, “I play a student who falls for a widow er played by the director himself. Though this is my first film, I have plenty of scope to perform.” Deepika has no qualms about wearing glamourous outfits so long as it suits her. “I do not mind even wearing a swimsuit if the script demands it,” she says. She also has a music video Mazhai to her credit.

Impressed by her portfolio, director P.Vasu has auditioned her for his next film where his son is debuting as the hero. Deepika is also thrilled about getting an offer from SJ.Suryah for his film Thirumagan.

When asked about her resemblance to actress Nayanthara, Deepika is in all smiles, “Many people say that I look and smile like Nayanthara. It’s a great compliment.”
