Director lauds Priyamani's action skills

Chennai, Aug 20 : Actress Priyamani learnt sword-fighting, archery and even acrobatics for her upcoming Telugu social period drama "Chandi", and its director V. Samudra can't stop lauding her dedication towards mastering the action skills.

"She (Priyamani) was expected to learn archery and sword-fighting for her role. I was stunned to know that she is a very quick learner. All that it took her to shoot arrows was two hours of training with a professional," Samudra told IANS.

"It's not just dancing and romancing for actresses, but sometimes it's more than that. At times, it means to wield the sword or even doing a back flip for an action sequence. Priyamani's role is a mixture of all that and audiences will love her for that," he added.

Priyamani is playing an avenging angel in the film, which also features R. Sarath Kumar, Nagendra Babu, Ashish Vidyarthi, Posani Krishna Murali and M.S. Narayana.

"We are busy wrapping up the talkie portion. If all goes well, then we are likely to release it by September-end," he added.

The film also features veteran actor Krishnam Raju in an important role.

"He plays the role of a king. It will be a powerful role along the lines of roles that he did in films such as 'Bobbli Brahmanna' and 'Thandra Paparayudu'," said Samudra.
