Can Jayendra directed 180 help Priya Anand to regain lost ground?
Remember the girl seen in the chartbuster song Edho Saigirai failed to click as two of her Tamil releases Vaamanan and Pugaippadam were flops.
A lot is riding on 180 for Priya Anand as she needs a hit badly in Tamil to establish herself as a saleable star.
In fact, she is more popular in Telugu where she has done the Sekhar Kammula hit Leader opposite Rana Daggabuti.
Priya Anand in an interview to a newspaper said: "180 is my re-entry to Tamil cinema. I'm a Chennai ponnu (girl) So it feels like a homecoming for me. I want to be accepted by our audiences, which I feel is a must for an actress to be recognized in the film".
Says Priya: "I'm confident that my character, Renu, will strike a chord with audiences. The character represents real-time emotions and comes across as a slice of life. Director Jayendra is a genius and has ensured that the entire movie is character-driven. Even though the film revolves around Siddharth, Jayendra has given importance to the female characters played by Nithya Menen and me."
