Item girl turned character actress Sona Heiden sure knows how to stay in the limelight! The sexy babe who started her career in an Ajith starrer Poovellam Un Vaasam migrated to Tollywood and completed more than dozen films there. When she returned to K’town, she opted for supporting roles in films like Mirugam and Kuselan. She stole the spotlight after her sizzling performance in the item song in Ko.
She is already a successful entrepreneur with her Uniq Stores and distributed Soundarya’s film Goa. Although her role as a producer in her home banner Uniq Productions with Kanimozhi, did not do well, the manner in which the glam girl launched the film was the talk of the town.
The actress who has always courted controversy in the past, has said that she would soon be launching a film which she would be producing and directing. Turning her dreams to reality, Sona has taken the avatar of a director now. Announcing her first ever-directorial venture, which has been titled Dev, Sona said, “I undertook a formal screenplay writing and direction course at a film institute in Chennai before venturing into filmmaking.”
She has chosen a debutant hero Dev, as the lead protagonist in the title role. On the genre of her film, she says, “Dev is an intense love story with rich production values. It will be a family entertainer and I will not compromise on quality. We are in the process of hunting for our heroine and I am in the process of finalising the technical crew.” Ask her if she would be seen in a pivotal role in Dev, Sona says with a smile, “If a suitable character is there, I may step in as an actress but I’m yet to decide.”
