Kollywood actress Padmapriya says she is feeling butterflies in her stomach as she waits for the release of her Bollywood movie Striker next week. The movie also marks the return to the screen of Siddharth. She admits, however, that she enjoyed the experience of making the movie. “I am contented about playing the role,” she confirms, “We worked from 2:00 in the afternoon to 4:00 am the next day. It was a great experience.”
The actress has no plans, however, to up sticks and move north, preferring instead the variety and flexibility offered by the south‘s movie industries. “After essaying the challenging role of a tribal warrior in the period saga Pazhazzi Raja, I am excited about my Tamil film Irumbu Kottai Murattu Singam and the Kannada film Thamasu,” she says.
Her flexibility will certainly be put to the test in the comedy western Irumbu Kottai Murattu Singam in which she plays a cowgirl. “I’m one of three heroines, and trust me, we’ve all had a blast,” she explains, “The story and screenplay are very unique and the way my sequences have been filmed are very different from anything I’ve seen or done before. From the set to the costumes everything is consistent with the theme and an absolute feast to the eyes. It’s been a very different experience altogether, and I am sure the audiences will have as much fun watching it as we did making it.” The film also stars Lawrence, Sandhya and Lakshmi Rai.
