Q: After you have won the title of Angel through the film Azhagi why you have not seen quite a long time in films?
A: Though I have won the title Angel in that film, I did the younger role of Nanditha Das. Hence, after the film was released I was asked to do the role of second heroine. But before accepting those I offers, I was invited to act in Telugu films.
Q; Have you done the role of heroine in Telugu?
A: Yes. I acted in Sivarama Rajasri and E.V. Sathyanarayana films. Other than this I acted in other two films. I did glamour role. That has fetched me good name.
Q: The surprise thing is that you have acted with Vadivelu for Imsai Arasan?
A: As far this film is concerned; I did not see who all the other actors with me are. I accepted the role, because it is Director Shankar’s movie. As expected the film got me a good name and it was a successful film in India and in London. On seeing the film many started Fans Club for me. Now, they are going to make out website in my name, and recently I came to know that the work of the site is in full swing and will be launched in the near future.
Q: Even after these successes you could not appear as heroine?
A: I think I belong to the Tamil Nadu, that is the main reason. Second, it was due to some actresses who hail from Mumbai. There is a general expectation, that the heroine should not speak Tamil properly and that may also another reason why I have not received recognition.
Q: What is the reason for appearing in glamour role in Silandhi?
A: When I feel happiness that I have acted in Azhagi film. But at the same time I feel sorry for having acted as an angel in the film. Many advertisement companies asking me to appear in sarees as if angels. This type of role may not be required for the films that are
produced now. That is the one of the reasons I am not able to get chances in films. Though I have acted in glamour roles in Telugu, I have done most glamorus role in Silandhi. Appearing in glamorous role is not a bad one. It is a part and parcel of acting.
