How did you get
your first break?
I was modeling in Kerala and have done a lot of ramp
shows and textile commercials. Director Sargunam spotted
me and I took a screen test for my role in Kalavaani
and I passed.
What was your
It was a very nice role of a homely and charming Thanjavur
girl. Working on the sets was fun as I would get ragged
by everyone. It was like being with the family. When
we were shooting in Thanjavur, we were overwhelmed
with the crowd that came to watch us. They had never
seen a film shooting before and were very supportive
What was the
It was the scene where I had to get on a moving bus.
It was really tough. I fell down and got bruised.
I cried a bit. Some of the initial scenes in the film
were shot when I had fever and that was tough too;
I just had injections and carried on.
How was it working
with Director Sargunam?
He is very hard-working and it was very comfortable.
He teaches you very well and it was like being with
family. At the end of the film, he told me that my
performance was good and natural. I feel proud.
is the response you received to your role?
Director Mani Ratnam saw the songs of the
film and told me they were nice and asked
me to keep it up. Many people told me I
was natural. On networking sites, I had
feedback that the role felt real. Many related
to me and said I resembled their `pakkathu
veetu ponnu’ or lover. I was happy.

Tell us about your role in Muthuku Muthaga?
Shooting for this film is yet to start. I play a character
where there is both a village and a modern city girl
What is your
role in Sevanu like?
The film is being directed by Director Jeeva and I
have a performance-oriented role, a little mature
What is the difference
you find working in Tamil and Malayalam films?
There is no major difference between the industry
working styles; the style of working depends on the
director. The Tamil industry is bigger though.
Do you speak
Yes, I learnt speaking by watching many Tamil films.
Besides, the language is similar to Malayalam. I like
the people in Chennai, they are very nice.
How do you find
It’s a very nice film and I like the way every
shot was done.
