On the commemoration of Silk Smitha’s birth anniversary, Australian-Indian actor Chandrika Ravi unveiled her next ambitious project: a biopic chronicling the life of the enigmatic Silk Smitha. Sharing the news on Instagram, Chandrika released a captivating first look, dressed strikingly similar to the iconic actor.
Titled “Silk Smitha, The Untold Story,” the film is set to be directed by Jayaram Sankaran, known for his recent work on the eight-episode Tamil series, “Sweet Kaaram Coffee,” available on Prime Video. The announcement was made on social media, accompanied by a photo reminiscent of one of Silk Smitha’s famed images. Chandrika, draped in a saree, captured the essence of Silk with kohl-lined eyes and a distinctive pose, presenting a departure from her usual on-screen appearances.
Expressing reverence for Silk Smitha on what would have been her 63rd birthday, Chandrika conveyed gratitude, sharing, “With the blessings of her family, it is with immense gratitude that we share with the world her untold story.”
Chandrika Ravi, an Australian-born talent, made her foray into acting and modeling after relocating to Los Angeles, USA. Her career saw an upsurge following her roles in Tamil and Telugu cinema, notably in the 2018 Tamil film “Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuththu” and the 2019 Telugu remake “Chikati Gadilo Chithakotudu.” However, her prominence escalated when she featured in a special number, “Maa Bava Manobhavalu,” in Balakrishna-starrer “Veera Simha Reddy.” Her upcoming project includes an English film titled “Bollywood to Hollywood.”
Silk Smitha, a celebrated actor renowned for her roles in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi cinema, passed away in September 1996. Despite gaining fame for her glamorous roles, she aspired to be recognized as a character artist, desiring more substantial roles that would highlight her acting prowess.
As Chandrika Ravi embarks on portraying the untold chapters of Silk Smitha’s life, the biopic aims to shed light on the lesser-known facets of the legendary actor, promising a glimpse into her multifaceted persona and the challenges she encountered in the film industry.
