The glamour girl of 90’s Amala Akkineni, who made her acting debut with Tamil films and worked with superstars like Rajnikanth (Vellaikaran), Kamalhassan (Satya and Vetrivilla), had gained a fan following, but now with her nondescript role in TV serial “Uyir Mel”, dealing about the lives of 12 doctors, their families and their profession, she has disappointed Tamil thambis’,says a source.
“Amala made a wrong choice. If she really wanted to do Tamil serials, keeping up with her brand image, she could have done it like Radhika or Ramya Krishna, who appear in high-budget serials on Sun TV and portray strong women characters. Her experiment has gone wrong, ” added source.
In fact, Amala was supposed to do a TV show sometime back in a Telugu news channel which was backed by UNICEF. The programme was aimed at children, education, malnutrition and their plight. Later, it didn’t work out for various reasons. The show was on the lines of Aamir Khan’s Satyameva Jayate. Had Amala has debuted with it, it’d had been a mighty launch. Rather Nag’s wife chose a `meek and helpless role of a doctor”which is ‘truly ‘unimpressive’.
