Shantini Theva, a Malaysian citizen of Indian origin, set her foot in tinsel town with Nadodigal, where she played the antagonist.
Many bitter experiences in the projects she took on after that convinced her to quit acting completely.
'I have begun to hate cinema and have had enough of the film industry,' says Shantini, adding, 'My only good experience was my debut film. After that, Iíve only faced many bad situations.'
'I have now packed my bags and am back home in Malaysia. The crew of the film on the 2G spectrum scam has contacted me repeatedly to play Nira Radia, but Iíve decide to call it quits with this industry,' says the actress.
