Little Kushboo of Kollywood is all smiles. With her
Oru Kal Oru Kannadi (OKOK) with Udayanidhi Stalin
all set to release shortly, catch the bubbly and effervescent
Hansika Motwani on a chat with Behindwoods.com.
The expectation about OKOK
OKOK is my first release in 2012 and I am looking forward
I play the character of Meera. The hero of the film,
Udayanidhi and his friends try to woo me, and I play
the ‘hard one to get’ girl role. On the
sets, Udayanidhi and I got along like a house on fire.
The film is a hilarious rom-com and I am sure it will
entertain the audience to no limits.
with big actors like Vijay, Dhanush and Jeyam Ravi and
about the dream hero in films
I am a greedy actress and I have just started my career.
Even before my first film in Tamil was released, I had
four films in my hand. I have a long way to go and would
like to work with all the big actors and do a lot more
journey from a child model to a top heroine
I was very successful as child model and actress. However,
I have to take breaks for my studies. I debuted as a
heroine at the age of 16 plus and there has been no
south Indian connection
Till I met Mr Puri Jagannath, who did Desamuduru, I
never had any idea of doing films in the South. He approached
me and Desamuduru got me the Filmfare Award for the
best debut actress. Now after doing several Tamil films,
Chennai has become my favorite place. Though a Punjabi
by birth, I have become a Tamilian at heart.
The Chinna (Little)
I am privileged to be called by the name and identified
with such a legendary artist. Actor Vijay gave me the
name and soon the industry started identifying me as
Chinna Kushboo. I feel great about it as not everybody
will get such a compliment. I felt so happy when Kushboo
madam called me and appreciated my work in some of the
films. Now, I want to live up to people’s expectations.
STR in Vettai Mannan and on doing multi-heroine films
I shot for about 10 days with STR for Vettai Mannan.
He was very sweet, decent and professional. I am a very
professional artiste and though the film has another
heroine, my part is very clear and we do not have any
the gossips that are going around
Staying in films as a top actress is difficult. I had
four films in a very short period in Tamil and I know
that many people were trying for those roles. Hence
it was natural to have a lot of rumors. The alleged
link up with Prabhu Deva was shocking to me. Initially
I was dignified enough to keep mum. Prabhu Deva and
I share a brother-sister relationship and twisting it
out of proportion was outrageous. When things went out
of proportion, I issued a statement explaining the facts.
with actress Nayanthara
Nayanthara is a very beautiful actress. I have met her
on a couple of times. She came to the sets of Engeyum
Kathal on a couple of occasions and we were very happy
