Poorna is all set to share the screen with superstar Mahesh Babu in his forthcoming film directed by Koratala Siva. The Avunu star has been roped in to do a special song in the family entertainer. Apparently, the filmmakers were on the lookout for an actress who was proficient in a classical dance form for the number.
"After considering several names, the director finally zeroed in on Poorna. It is a peppy dance number that is set in a rural backdrop and the director wanted an actress who could carry off come challenging traditional dance moves. Since Poorna is a trained Kathak dancer she fit the bill perfectly," informs a source from the film's unit.
Poorna, who is currently doing a handful of films in Tamil and Telugu, recently took a break to hone her Kathak steps. The filmmakers approached the Kerala-based actress who jumped at the offer. This is the first time she will be working with the Tollywood superstar. "A special set is being erected in the city. Poorna will shoot for the song next month," adds the source.
