Perhaps tired of doing serious films right from the day her career started in the tinsel town (‘Thavamai Thavamirundhu’, ‘Pattiyal’, ‘Pokkisham’, ‘Pazhassi Raja’), Padmapriya now wants to do an out and out commercial film.
“I am a great fan of humour. And I want to be part of a masala entertainer, which would be a romantic comedy. I would like to break the myth that I am fit for serious roles alone,” says the actress, who recently stepped into Bollywood with ‘Striker’, the Siddharth starrer.
An MBA graduate who was working with a MNC, Padmapriya shifted gears to acting thanks to her passion. “I am happy that I was able to bag different kind of roles so early in my career. Neeli of ‘Pazhassi Raja’ is a perfect example,” she says.
On her forthcoming film ‘Irumbu Kottai Murattu Singam’, which would hit the screens this weekend, she says, “I play a village belle, who is the daughter of a Marshall. Acting in a cowboy film, that too in the company of Larencce Raghavendra and Chimbudevan was a nice experience.”
