Chennai: Actress Ritu Varma will be playing Dulquer Salmaan's leading lady in a yet-untitled Tamil film and she is thrilled to be joining the actor whom she considers a good performer.
The film will mark the directorial debut of Desingh Periyasamy.
"I signed the project recently. Dulquer is a really good performer and I'm excited to be working with him. Although it's too early to talk about the film or my character, I can say that I'm really looking forward to starting work on this film," Ritu told IANS.
This will be Dulquer's fourth straight Tamil film. The project will go on the floor from October.
Ritu's last outing was Telugu film Keshava. However, She rose to fame with 2016's runaway hit Telugu romantic-drama Pellichoopulu.
Did she turn choosy since "Pellichoopulu", Ritu said: "I know people have a lot of expectations. But I don't think I have become choosy. I still do projects which I find exciting. It could even mean a film with a newcomer."
Ritu believes "script is the hero".
She also has Vikram's Tamil spy thriller Dhruva Natchathiram in her kitty.
"I recently finished my portion for the film in Georgia. I'll join them soon in Turkey where they are currently shooting," she said.
