In 2015, the lovely Sayyeshaa made her big screen debut with the highly ambitious Telugu film ‘Akhil: The Power of Jua’ and began a new chapter in life. Unfortunately, the film could not live up to expectations and ended up being a commercial failure. Post that, she made her Bollywood debut with ‘Shivaay’ and acted alongside the much-loved Ajay Devgn. Released during Diwali 2016, it did well at the box office despite receiving a mixed response from critics. However, in some ways, it was the 2017 release ‘Vanamagan’ that proved to be a gamechanger for the lovely lady. An action/adventure thriller, opened to a decent response at the box office and helped her become the latest heartthrob of K-town. Talking about the film, she had said that it was grateful to director Vijay for offering her a strong role and helping her showcase her abilities as a performer.
“I play Kavya, an innocent modern girl from an affluent family, who has not seen many struggles in her life. She then comes across this tribal man (played by Jayam Ravi), and the intertwining of the two different characters is what the film is about. Thanks to Vijay sir for giving me a strong character showcasing various facets of my personality,” she had told a leading daily.
Now, Sayyeshaa is in the limelight again and that too for an awesome reason. As it so happens, she recently caught up with her mom, director Vijay and noted DOP Dudley for a fun-filled ‘reunioun dinner’ much to the delight of her well-wishers. Here are some photos from the get-together. Judging by them, Sayyeshaa enjoyed the evening a lot. Talk about living life to the fullest.

On a related note, this is a busy time for Sayyeshaa. At present, she has ‘Junga’ and a film with noted director Pandiraj in her kitty. ‘Junga’ is an action-thriller and will see her act opposite the versatile Vijay Sethupathi. The film is being directed by Gokul and will feature her in a glam avatar. As far as the Pandiraj film is concerned, it also has Karthi in the lead and will see the young lady in sport a de-glam look.
Talking about these films, she had praised Vijay Sethupathi in Karthi, stressing that she learnt a lot from them.
“Both Junga and the film with Karthi are extremely different. Junga has me in a very westernised and glamourous role whereas other one sees me in a de-glam avatar. That is something I haven’t done before. All of my roles earlier have seen me in western looks but this film is very Indian, which is who I am at heart. I am very simple and homely. Pandiaraj sir’s film has given the chance to show that I can be both. Vijay Sethupathi sir is a phenomenal actor. I learn a lot from the scenes I do with him. He is always there with some good advice. On the other hand, Karthi is very astute in his judgement. He is very into the film and he makes sure everything is going right,” she had told a leading website.
Besides these two films, she also has ‘Ghajinikanth’ in her kitty. In it, she will be seen alongside the dashing Arya. And, needless to say, this fresh pairing has already created quite a buzz amongst fans. Sometime ago, Arya had said the film is a lively rom-com and asked fans to avoid jumping to conclusions based on its quirky title.
“My movie is not an adult content movie. It’s a breezy rom-com with the working title Ghajinikanth. Also, please don’t come to any conclusion with the title. I play an IT guy and it is all about romance and humour and they are situational comedy. I loved Santhosh’s sense of humour when he gave me the narration. The film will be on the lines of Boss Engira Bhaskaran and Raja Rani,” he had told a daily.
