Chennai: Malayalam actress Shamna Kasim aka Poorna says she didn’t have any qualms about shaving her head for the sake of her character in upcoming Tamil film Kodi Veeran. She is confident the role will earn her recognition.
“I’m getting to do something different and I’m sure the role will be very well received. It will get good recognition, and that’s exactly why I didn’t mind shaving my head,” Poorna told IANS.
She clarified she didn’t accept the role to prove a point.
“I accepted the role only after I realised the potential of my character. It’s not the kind of role all actresses would do and that excited me the most,” she said.
She has pinned high hopes on the film, which has been directed by Muthiah. The film, shot entirely in Madurai, features Sasikumar in the lead.
