Actress Priya Anand always wanted to be part of the Film Industry in some way or the other. She came to Chennai with the intention to join as assistant director to Shankar who is known for his larger-than-life films with undercurrent social messages.
However, God has different plans for the sexy beauty. She was flooded with modeling and film assignments, which prompted her to choose acting first and direction later.
The actress even shared her dream with Shankar during a recent match at a cricket stadium. The ace filmmaker just laughed after hearing what Priya Anand has set as a goal and only then she came to know that there is not a single female assistant director in his camp.
Priya Anand asserts that making a mark in the Industry without the backing of a godfather isn’t easy, but she learnt a lot in the process creating an identity for herself. Every time she receives a call from the production house, she knows it’s just because of her talent and the hunger for success makes her give it her best.
