Shamna Kasim to be Ilaya Dalapaty’s heroine
Shamna Kasim could not shine sufficiently in Malayalam. That persuaded her to migrate to Tamil. In Tamil she adopted the name Poorna. She has the looks of the actress Asin. This helped her a lot, in impressing the movie-goers in Tamil filmdom. Poorna got her maiden offer from ‘Muniyandi Vilangiyal Moonramandu’ in which Bharath was the hero. This helped her gain sufficient popularity in Tamil. After this she played the heroine in Malayalam ‘Chattakkari’. With this she proved she can handle glamorous rolls too equally well. In the meanwhile she has established her identity in Telugu movies also. For quite some time she didn’t get any offers from Tamil. But now, after a long gap she secured an offer to be the heroine of Ilaya Dalapathy.
