Q: You signed even before Yennai Arindhaal. How did that offer come to you?

A: I was shooting for an Ad in Bangalore in the same house where Uttama Villain was also shot. Someone gave my pix to UV Casting team. So I got a call from them. Initially, I thought someone was playing a prank and didn’t believe them. After several calls, I realized it was for real and met the team and the director. They did a look test and confirmed me very quickly.

Q: When u realized you were going to work with an Acting Legend like , how was that feeling. How was it working with him?

A: Since it was at the beginning of my career, getting a chance to work with such a legend like Actor  was such an unbelievable feeling. At the beginning of your career, if one gets to work with good actors and good directors, it helps a lot with your future projects. So in that way, I am very lucky to work with such a legend like Kamal Sir. I learnt a lot from him.

Q: How was it working with Dir Ramesh Aravind?

A: He is a very sweet person. Very calm. There was no stress at all with the unit. Since they are worked for some time before, there was lot of cohesiveness. Even though I was new, they made me comfortable in the sets.

Q: Uttama Villain also has four other Actresses – Urvashi, Pooja Kumar, Parvathy and Andrea. How was it working with them?

A: I was more close to Urvashi Madam and Parvathy. But I did have scenes with Andrea and Pooja also. We all got along well. It was lot of fun.

Q: How about working with legendary directors Late Dir K.Balachander and K.Vishwanath.

A: We have scenes in which the entire family gets together. So I had a chance to share screen with both the legends Dir K.Balachander and K.Vishwanath. Both of them were very sweet and lively.

Q: Let’s switch gears and talk about Yennai Arindhaal. How was the Post-release experience of Yennai Arindhaal?

A: I got an overwhelming feedback for my performance in Yennai Arindhaal and I would say, 95% is positive. Some were saying it was a bold move for me to play a character with negative shades. Wherever I went for college events, ppl were asking me to dance for Adhaaru Adhaaru song. It was a great experience.

Q: How was it working with Thala in YA?

A: Thala is the most honest, humble and genuine human being I have ever met. He is very nice. Very, very family oriented person.

Q: In Yennai Arindhaal, u were paired with Arun Vijay. Tell us something about him.

A: Actor Arun Vijay calls me his lucky charm. He is a good friend. Initially, we didn’t interact much. Later, we became good friends. He has a good screen presence. I am very happy that his Victor character was well received.

Q: It’s a dream for Actresses to work with Dir Gautham Vasudeva Menon.

A: He is also very sweet person. By the time I joined Yennai Arindhaal shoot, the shoot became very hectic and we were rushing. But he was very cool, calm and collected.

Q: Tell us something about your upcoming Kannada movie – . I heard you also have sung a song in that movie.

A: It’s a movie which looks at the present day education system. It has lot of humor. I would consider myself a decent singer. I think most good actors are good singers. Even though, my main focus will be acting, I would love to continue a parallel career in singing.

Q: What about your future projects? Have you signed any?

A: Yes. I have signed two projects. I will be starting a Malayalam project first then followed by Tamil. The concerned production houses will make official announcements soon.
