She is playing an important role in Vishal’s Sandakozhi 2 where Keerthy Suresh is the female lead and in Mr.Chandramouli which stars Gautham Karthik and Regina Cassandra in the lead.

She has now signed Dhanush’s Maari 2. She is said to play a pivotal role in this quirky gangster sequel. Sai Pallavi has been signed as the female lead while Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose the music. The film is expected to roll from early next year. Balaji Mohan will direct the film under Wunderbar Films
