Dookudu girl is no more an Item

After making a comeback with an item number in Dhookudu, actress Parvathi Melton has been signing up for lead roles only. She has reportedly refused to do item numbers as she wants to be known as a good actress. “She doesn’t want to be tagged as an item girl. Acting is her passion and she remains a leading actress. She is looking for good roles. In fact, she has thumbed down 4-5 item songs and lost a few crores but she is determined to make a mark as an actress,” said a source close to the actress. Before she took a break to be with her ailing mother in Mumbai, Parvathi had hits like Vennella and Jalsa to her name. The actress must be hoping that her two films – Srimannarayana and Yamaho Yama – would give the much-needed flip to her second innings in Tollywood. No doubt, this is a crucial phase in her career and these two films can make or break her.
