Actor Shriya Saran is all excited with her ambitious role in the upcoming Period-fantasy-Kannada-Tamil bilingual film, 'Chandra' directed by Roopa Iyer.

It has to be recalled that the director of the film had earlier roped in Divya Spandana and had even signed her for the role. However Divya was dropped from the film later as she unable to co-operate with the director and showed less interest during the shoot skipping the Kalaripayattu training classes that were required for the stunts performed by her character.

The director then zeroed in on Shriya after considering other actors like Dia Mirza, Amala Paul, Amrita Rao and Aindrita Ray for the prestigious role that it is of a princess of last generation. The film revolves around the princess and the love story in her life that has been shot at beautiful temples in Karnataka and an erected palace set in Mysore.

A thorough profession of an actor that Shriya is, trained in Kalaripayattu for the stunts performed by the princess and the fight sequences in the film. These sequences required a lot of dedication and Shriya has been putting in a lot of hard work, much to her director Roopa Iyer's delight.

It will be remembered that actor Genelia also had trained Kalaripayattu for the role of a princess she played in Santosh Shivan's Urumi, that did wonders for Genelia and got rave reviews.

Shriya must be keeping her fingers crossed for 'Chandra' to make her the darling of critics and fans alike.
