Controversies and Trisha go hand in hand; likewise, Trisha and social service don’t remain at a distance. The actress, who was a popular model before debuting in Tamil films almost a decade back with Priyadarshan’s Lesa Lesa opposite Madhavan and Shaam, has been indulging in socially relevant causes from time to time.
At times, these acts get the attention of the media and sometimes, Trisha doesn’t bother informing the media and goes ahead with her ‘mission’. Like many actors have, Trisha too has a large number of fan clubs. On the eve of release of her Tamil and Telugu movies, the office-bearers of the fan clubs do indulge in helping the poor and the needy.
On her birthday each year, she spends her time mostly at some Old Age Homes or with children from the downtrodden community. She devotes only the evenings for throwing party to her friends and relatives. She is presently starring in a solitary Tamil film titled Samaran opposite Vishal in his home production. Sunaina is the other heroine in the film who vies for honours with Trisha.
During the shoot of Samaran some time back, Trisha reportedly visited Kancheepuram and headed directly to an Asylum for the Mentally Challenged Children there and spent long hours of quality time with the children of the ‘lesser God’. She served them food and stayed at the Asylum for more than 4 hours.
Commenting about this, she says “Experiences such as these give me immense self-satisfaction. In fact, the day I spent with those children at Kancheepuram was really an unforgettable day in my life. I appeal to all my fans and the public in general to do their bit in whatever manner possible for the upliftment of these children!”
