Bala's heroine, Madhu Shalini who played a sweet and homely girl in Avan Ivan is playing a gangster in Ram Gopal Verma's Department with Amitabh Bachchan and Rana Daggubati. Fans have been stunned with her departure from the norm as she is seen smoking and wielding a pistol in the promos. The actress is thrilled with the impact she is making as her decision to experiment seems to have paid off.
RGV was so impressed with her work that he has offered her another role in a horror film he is making. Manisha Koirala also has an important role in this film. Madhu Shalini is excited about this project as well and says she is looking forward to working with Manisha, whom she admires.
