Siberian-born former TV anchor and phone-in host Swathi has been raving about working with Vikram in Kashmir. “Vikram is a great actor and a thorough professional,” she says, “He doesn’t have an ego even though he is one of the leading actors of Kollywood.”
After her big success in Subramaniapuram and Ashta Chamma, Swathi is hoping that her so-far untitled movie with Vikram and Shriya Saran will catapault her new movie career in the right direction. “Vikram went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and ensure that I had no problems even when the director asked for a retake in the freezing conditions in Ladakh,” she adds.
Swathi was astonished recently when watching the Bollywood movie 3 Idiots to find scenes shot in exactly the same location as the Vikram movie. “While I was watching Aamir’s 3 Idiots, I was screaming in the theatre when I saw the same locations where we have shot our film,” she says proudly.
