Shivatmika Rajasekhar made an impressive debut with 'Dorasani'. In the period drama, She presented herself only in traditional avatars as per the requirement of the character. After making debut with such a traditional appearance, There is every possibility of getting typecast and the fact that she is a Star Kid doesn't permit Filmmakers to consider her for modern roles.
Seems like, Shivatmika decided to send a strong message to one and all with a spicy photoshoot. She didn't mind either wearing a body-hugging dress or flaunting her cleavage. This could be an attempt to convey about her intention to do glamorous roles as well. Who would have any objection as long as Rajasekhar and Jeevitha are okay with it?
