Actress Kaveri debuted as Prashanth’s heroine in the blockbuster film Vaigasi Porandhachu and went on to star in many movies. Kaveri didn’t have a highly successful stint as heroine and slowly retreated from films. After a break of many years, she is now back as an actress albeit on small-screen.
Kaveri plays a significant role in the hugely popular television serial Thangam on air on a popular television channel. The serial has many Kollywood artistes including Ramya Krishnan, Vijayakumar and Seema, to name a few. Kaveri plays a role which has shades of ‘grey’ in it but is predominantly a comic character.
“I have been an actress for the past twenty years now. I know nothing other than acting. I don’t differentiate between small screen and big screen. In both the version, I feel that an actress’ job is to emote in front of the camera. I want to remain happy irrespective of wherever I am. I think many hours of my life at the shooting spot than I spend at my house.
“I didn’t have any inkling that the serial would have such a large ‘reach’. I haven’t played any negative roles in films and tried it for the first time on small screen. It’s indeed a novel experience for me. I have also attempted comedy in this serial. My mother watches the serial everyday and points out whatever mistakes I might have made in portraying my character. Given a choice, I’d love to play negative roles in films too,” concludes Kaveri.
