There were reports that Sheril might soon star opposite Ilayathalapathy Vijay in his upcoming movie, directed by KS Ravikumar. However, a source close to the young dancer has confirmed to International Business Times India that the news is fake, upsetting Sheril's fans.
Though Sheril received a call from the team of the Tamil flick, she has apparently denied the offer as she has wanted to continue in her teaching profession. In an earlier interview, she had revealed: "I got a call from KS Ravikumar-Vijay's movie. But they didn't mention for which role I was considered. My parents will decide. I am totally blank now. I cannot take any such decisions now. I have never acted before and I am not sure if I have any acting skills [translated from Malayalam]."
While interacting with RJ Anand of Radio Mirchi, Sheril had also said that she would give it a try if a good role is offered.
Sheril has now reportedly said: "When I received the call, I was taking a class. They had asked to let them know if I am interested in acting. When I called back, I spoke as if I am not interested. I would like to continue as a teacher and not to try acting profession [translated from Malayalam."
Sheril's decision has left her fans in disappointment. Fans hope that the young faculty member will change her decision in near future and entertain them on the silver screen.
