1. Walking the ramp
The 2017 multi-starrer Nakshatram features Sai Dharam Tej, Prakash Raj, Pragya Jaiswal, Sundeep Kishan and Regina Cassandra in the lead roles. While the men in this action drama are good, it is Pragya Jaiswal as IPS officer Kiran Reddy who comes across as a breath of fresh air. She is sweet but bold, delicate but fierce and is a complete badass boss lady.
Pragya is introduced to us as someone who pretends to be a runway model who steals cellphones and escapes from the venue. But when she is on the ramp, our eyes are locked on her flawless beauty.
2. Giving a crisp answer
Sundeep, who plays aspiring police officer Rama Rao, meets Kiran Reddy for the second time in the film and tries to intimidate her by wearing a fake police uniform. Instead of ignoring him once again, she loosens her stiff collar and brings him to his knees with some kickass moves.
3. So much swag
The popular saying, ‘calm before the storm’, is what defines the character of IPS officer Kiran Reddy. You will see her smiling and giggling or simply sipping on her cuppa coffee casually. And in the very next moment, you will see her chasing down goons and breaking bones with equal amounts of cool.
4. Duty and dignity
Spoiler alert! In the climax of Nakshatram, IPS officer Kiran Reddy puts an end to the biggest crime in the city. She brings the criminal out in broad daylight… only to end up dying. But an officer never gets off duty. As she takes her last breath, she raises her hand to salute, one last time.
For some light-hearted entertainment, head to ZEE5 and watch Duvvada Jagannatham featuring Allu Arjun in the titular role.
