Even before her Engeyum Kadhal released, Hansika Motwani was signed up for Mapillai opposite Dhanush directed by Suraj. Mapillai produced by Sun Pictures is the remake of Superstar Rajnikanth‘s movie with the same name. Though she has done a few movies in Telugu as leading lady, she became more famous after photos from Engeyum Kadhal were officially released by AGS Entertainment and Prabhu Deva, and she stole the hearts of Tamil youngsters too!
Along with Tapasee, who also paired with Dhanush in Aadukalam, Hansika became one of the most preferred actresses for Tamil movie producers. Jayam Ravi, in a recent interview, mentioned how much fun it was to work with her during the shooting of Engeyum Kadhal. Her career is confirmed for success after she was signed opposite Udhayanidhi Stalin in Red Giant Movies‘ Oru Kal Oru Kannadi (OkOk) directed by Rajesh (of Siva Manasula Sakthi and Boss Engira Baskaran fame). It is heard that other actresses such as Trisha and Tamannaah who were in the race for the role in OkOk are quite jealous of Hansika! Hansika’s performance in Engeyum Kadhal has been loved by many, so we should see more of her in Kollywood in the days to come.
