Anushka has opined that heroines are fast becoming the ‘casualties’ whenever a film fails. The actress with a seemingly never-ending pair of legs has said that more than anyone associated with the film, it’s mostly the heroine who is hit hard by the failure of the film.
Anushka, who debuted in the Tamil film ‘Rendu’ opposite Maddy a few years back, made a successful comeback in Kollywood in early 2009 with the blockbuster ‘Arundhati’ and followed it up with a failure in Vijay’s ‘Vettaikaran’ and then a successful ‘Singam’ opposite Suriya last year. She is presently awaiting the release of ‘Deiva Thirumagan’ in Tamil opposite ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram.
After taking part in the audio-launch of ‘Deiva Thirumagan’, Anushka returned to Hyderabad to shoot for her Telugu film assignments. Speaking to newsmen, she said during the break that “The moment I come out of the shooting venue, I forget the world of films. Otherwise, the mind would revert back to what had happened during the day and peace of mind would be completely lost.
“In reality, real life is vastly different from the one depicted in films. I feel an actress should never discuss about her profession when she is back home. When I first came into films, parents used to accompany me to the shoots; I’d feel awkward and embarrassing before them; obviously it had a negative effect on my performance.
“Now I come alone to the shooting spot and am able to perform better. Quality of films is far more important than the quantity of films an actress does. I treat each and every film as my first one. If a film fails, heroine becomes out of favour with the producers and directors sooner than later. We heroines can survive only if our films do well,” concluded Anushka.
