Just until a few days ago, Mehreen Pirzada was a hat-trick heroine. Now, in an unfortunate turn of events, she has received a double shock with a single film, C/o Surya.
Released simultaneously in Telugu and Tamil this Friday, C/o Surya, starring Sundeep Kishan and Mehreen in lead roles, received okayish word of mouth. Unfortunately, the collections weren’t that impressive. Sundeep’s flop streak and stiff competition at box office are being termed by trade analysts as the reasons for the film failing at box office in the Telugu states, making it Mehreen’s first commercial failure.
Coming to Tamil, the film has reportedly opened reasonably well. Many however complained about the not-so exciting love track. In order to make the film a crisp thriller, director Suseenthiran cut short the scenes involving Mehreen by 20 minutes, and the edited version is already in theatres now.
The new, crisp version is reportedly doing well but Mehreen’s role has become a sort of cameo in the film. So, she wouldn’t benefit much even if the film becomes a hit there. Mehreen’s hopes of creating a market for herself in Tamil with C/o Surya have all collapsed with the makers editing out her part almost entirely.
The film has turned out to be a twin blow for the beautiful actress in Telugu and Tamil for different reasons.
