Though she marked her entry to the Tamil film industry with Kedi, Tamanna shot to fame with Kalloori, which provided her with the biggest break. The movie also gave her great scope for acting, which she had wisely utilized to the maximum. She is also considered as a director’s heroine, as many feel that she listens attentively to what her director has to say and grasps the nuances of acting.With her career graph moving up high, there were reports that she prefers to act only with well-established heroes like Surya and Dhanush. When Tamanna was questioned about this, she diplomatically replied that before rising to the present position she was a starlet herself. She also made it very clear that the story tops her priority list and everything else comes a distant second.
After Happy days was a hit, she disclosed that she has many offers lined-up in Telugu Desam. The actress, to prove the point that she is here to stay for a long time to come, added that she is learning both the languages – Tamil and Telugu.
