How would you define yourself?
I’m a sensitive person, yet confident and bold. When it comes to work I am extremely hardworking and disciplined.
First thing you do when you wake up?
I run into my pet bunny’s room and kiss him good morning.
Your perfect holiday destination:
I haven’t really been on a vacation, but I would love to go to Croatia.
If you were chilling all alone, you would?
I would sit and talk to my pet bunny, even if he wasn’t there I would probably act out scenes from my favorite movies to sharpen my acting skills. It’s fun!
Which one do you prefer more, party or gym?
Your definition for fun:
If I want to have fun or get my mind off work, I would spend time with stray dogs. They are more fun than anyone I know. So I’d go to the beach and play with them for hours as they give me peace of mind and keep me grounded. I like watching movies too sometimes.
Your experience with actor Vijay?
I wasn’t a fan of him before I met him in person. He is very hardworking and the fact that he is so humble made me his fan. I love talking to him; he has a good sense of humor.
What can we see you next in?
My next Tamil movie is Lift. It’s a thriller mystery. I’ve played an important role in it. I also have a Telugu movie that is slated to release in August.
Your take away from the movie Bigil?
Atlee sir is my first guru in this industry. I learnt more than just the basics of acting. He taught me how the set works, camera angles and many behind-the-scenes workings too. And since Bigil was a huge movie and as I worked with some of the top names, I think I got more exposure and knowledge about how things work. I made amazing friends in that process too. We would probably be friends for life.
Your opinion on how women are portrayed in movies now?
Compared to what it was a decade ago, people are now accepting and encouraging women-centric films. Even if it isn’t a women-centric film, I think the female lead is no more treated just as eye candy or used just to make profits. They are actually given important roles in films. I appreciate that.
