Sara Shetty is an Indian actress and model. She works primarily in the Tamil film industry. She made her feature film debut with Ayyanar Veethi which is a 2017 released Tamil movie. Sara plays the lead role in the Tamil Drama. Ayyanar Veethi is a family drama filled with sentiments, suspense, and dramaturgy. Gipsy N Rajkumar is the director of the movie. It is his debut movie. The film has Sara Shetty and Yuvan Khan in lead roles. The plot of the movie circles around the differences and animosity between the two families. The movie begins with Bhagyaraj, a priest and his childhood friend, Ponvannan. Sara Shetty plays the role of Bhagyaraj's daughter. In the film, she is a college student. Yuvan, who is the hero of the talkie also studies in the same college.

Later in the movie, it is seen that Yuvan is in love with Sara while she pays no heed to his feelings. Thus, the motion picture comes out to be the same as all other family conflict movies of the age. It revolves around the themes of rivalry, betrayal, cunning, and the impossible love. The film turned out to be a huge flop. Critics considered it as a movie with nothing but foolery. Sara Shetty plays an insignificant role in the movie. Her role as described by many critics is very mundane. In the film, she is just a young college student who is at the receiving end of Yuvan's romantic advances. She plays the role of a coy maiden who is seen to have no interest in the hero's love for her.

Sara's role in Ayyanar Veethi is restricted and similar to the roles of all other heroines in such family dramas. The role of the damsel in distress actress is epitomized in the song, Ponnungala Poruthavara, where Yuvan chases Sara in their college premises. She is seen running away from him throughout the song. Thus, it becomes apparent that Sara Shetty in her debut film makes no considerable impact at the screen. The banality of her role is worsened by the poor cinematography and direction of the movie. Sara Shetty's debut film did not receive much recognition and as a result of the failure of the movie even her acting skills were not given much esteem. But, as Confucius says, "Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail."

Preethi Shankar Tamil Actress

Preethi Shankar

Preethi Shankar is an actress on the rise. Only being 21, she has an impressive roster of movies to boast about already. Unlike many other stars on this list, she comes through humble beginnings. Born on 13th of October, 1997 in the Chennai, Tamil Nadu, to Mr. Ravi Shankar and Mrs. Viji Shankar, she must have not exactly planned on becoming a movie actress in her formative years. After completing her schooling, she enrolled herself into the prestigious SRM Dental College, Chennai. She successfully graduated after completing her Bachelor’s degree in Dental Surgery (BDS) and becoming Doctor Preethi Shankar. Fate though had something entirely different planned for her. Most people in her position would choose to pursue their post-graduation, but in taking a bold step, she ventured off towards the large screen. Her quintessential good looks and natural flair for acting earned her a breakthrough in Kollywood (Tamil cinema). To cater to this change and carve an image people would hold on to, she adapted the alias of ‘Maya’. Her debut role was in a movie Anba Azagha in 2013. She was cast as the female lead in the same. This paved the way for future projects like Maan Karate, which she did in 2014. The movie portrayed her as one of the few Information Technology professionals, who becomes friends with the movie’s male protagonist. The movie was a moderate success but did well by her, cementing her position in the industry as a promising female starter. Further, she was one of the supporting actors in the movie Darling II, released in 2016. The movie was not well received by the critics but her well-rounded acting garnered her some welcomed attention. Owing to this, the same year saw her playing the lead female in another Kollywood movie titled Unnodu Ka, which was a box office success. To put the cherry on top of a productive year that was 2016 for her, she was among the cast of the Tamil movie Metro as Ramya, which fared well at the box office and as well among critics. She hasn’t been a part of any movie released thereafter. Although, through the movies she has done and the kind of roles she has taken up, she has successfully managed to carve her niche in the Tamil movie industry and its audience. Any official announcement is yet to be made concerning her next project. The paths she has chosen in life and her roles in movies are resonant with the word ‘diverse’. Life seems to hold immense potential and fruitfulness for this young doctor and actor.
