Controversies seems to be chasing our Priyamani always. Priyamani the National Award-winning actress isn't worried about them. First, there was a reprot that she would be on the cover page of men's magazine with a bikini in the Telugu flick, Drona. Then there was a report which mentioned she was paid an additional Rs.20 lakhs for her biniki act in Drona and because the film didn't do well, the producer's didn't honour the payment. 

Then, came the news, she will be soon act with Mahesh Babu for his forthcoming Varudu movie and it was reported the two had done a photoshoot together for the movie. When a journalist ask her about this. She said, "First of all, I've never done a two-herione project, which is what Varudu is expected to be. Secondly, I've never seen or met Mahesh Babu.

Well, there seems to be one actress who is sure what she wants. What can we say, "Way to go girl".
