After making her tollywood debut with 'Oohalu Gusagusalade' in 2014, for two long years Raashi limited herself to only Telugu film industry. However, it seems that she has finally decided to expand her wings. Raashi was recently in news for bagging her debut Tamil film opposite Siddharth. Titled 'Shaitan ka Bachcha', the project was said to be a horror comedy. Even before this project has gone on floors, news has emerged that Raashi has signed her second Tamil film as well. She has been roped in to play the leading lady opposite young Tamil actor Atharva. This film will go on floors by the year end. The fluent-Telugu speaking Delhi actress is also said to be in discussions to star in a couple of big Telugu projects including Ravi Teja's next film. Despite the success ratio of Raashi is not great, she is managing to grab offers only because of her acting ability and sensual appeal. Although her movies have failed, Raashi never failed to impress movie lovers and critics. After scoring a decent hit like 'Supreme' this year, Raashi is testing her luck with September 30 release 'Hyper'. With 'Oxygen' in post-production and a flying career ahead in kollywood, we hope she doesn't neglect Telugu cinema and balance both. BY M. DIVYA SRI
