Anjali, who stole many hearts with her lion-hearted performance in director Vasanthabalan’s ‘Angaadi Theru’, has seen her popularity soar over the past three months or so. Due to the success of the film, which had Anjali pairing opposite a newcomer Mahesh, Anjali has many films in her kitty now.
Amid reports that Anjali has ‘exposed a lot’ in her guest appearance for a song and more in the film titled ‘Maharaaja’, Anjali has already started work in a film titled ‘Karungaali’. The film stars newcomer Kalanjiyam as the hero, who also doubles up as the hero. Anjali says that her role in the film is a performance-oriented one but not quite a serious one as was the case in ‘Angaadi Theru’.
“People have been approaching me for heavy and very heavy characters. I would like to do some more light and comedy characters before getting into a serious mode on the lines of the late Smitha Patil,” says Anjali. Meanwhile, reports say that the actress has hiked her fee to a great extent but she refuses it and dismisses these as ‘mere rumours’.
Director Gauthaman, who is directing Anjali in ‘Magizchi’, claims that she hasn’t hiked her fee multifold as some reports suggest. Gauthaman doubles up as the hero in the film. “Anjali has been cooperating to the maximum extent possible and it’s utterly untrue that she has hiked her fee. Whatever fee was fixed for her some time back, still holds good; she hasn’t asked to be paid more,” clarifies Gauthaman.
Carry on, Anjali!
