HANSIKA MOTWANI INTERVIEW
The 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 to it.

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.

Working 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 films

The 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 looking back.

The 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) Kushboo status

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.

Working with 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 combo scenes.

On 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.

Your relationship 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 together.
