Women centric movies are a rarity in Tamil cinema but being a film maker with difference, Prabhu Solomon has titled his soon be released film as Kayal which is the character name of Anandhi who is playing as the heroine in the film.
Sify.com had a quick chat with Anandhi who is super busy with her next film with another maverick director, Vetrimaran.
Anandhi's foray into cinema is not pre-planned but because of an opportunity came on her way. When Anandhi participated in a dance competition, a Telugu director spotted her talent and cast her in Bus Stop, which went on to become a hit.
When Anandhi came to know that Prabhu Solomon was conducting an audition for a new film, she participated and immediately the director signed her as the female lead. Anandhi says "I'm a huge fan of Prabhu sir's movies and after my audition he told me that the film's title is Kayal which is based on my character and I was on cloud line".
Anandhi considers Kayal as an important film in her career, the actress says "Till now, no Telugu movie has been titled with the character name of a heroine and I feel really blessed for acting in Kayal which happened very soon in my career". Anandhi adds "Before Kayal, my understanding about cinema was different but now I feel that acting is something special and there are many things other than just being a heroine".
On working with Prabhu Solomon, Anandhi says "Prabhu Solomon is one director who explains scenes in detail and specifies the exact emotions he needed". Anandhi explains, "Prabhu sir won't settle with 20% performance , he will make sure to extract the best from us".
Speaking about her character in the film, the actress says "Kayal is an innocent girl who is not aware of things happening in the world and how love changes her life forms the crux of the story". We tried our best to get the entire story but you know this girl is clever enough to reveal only the abstract of her character!
Speaking about her co-star Chandran, Anandhi says "Chandran is very supportive and he didn't act like a new comer, he performed as if he is an experienced actor so inevitably there was a healthy competition".
On Vetrimaran's Visaranai, the actress says "I'm a big fan of Vetrimaran sir . Oh wait... Actually I'm a big fan of Dhanush and when I saw Aadukalam, I became a fan for Vetrimaran too".
As she said Dhanush's name, we asked her to list out the Tamil heroes whom she likes and Anandhi says "I like Dhanush and then Vijay... Actually I like everyone because all are having a unique talent right?"
When we asked her to compare both Vetrimaran and Prabhu Solomon, the dusky beauty says "Well, Prabhu sir is known for handling high peak emotions whereas Vetrimaran sir's style is different and I can tell you that the romantic sequences in Visaranai have come out really well".
Anandhi has also finished shooting a village based rom-com with Atharavaa and the film is directed by Sargunam of Vaagai Sooda Va fame. The actress heaps praise on the director by saying "Sargunam sir is very kind that he looked after me like his own daughter."
When we asked her about working with three talented directors in the beginning of her career, the Kayal girl says "I really don't know, I think I'm really blessed to work with such talented people".
