Actress Trisha had a super-hit film last year in Gautham Vasudev Menon’s ‘Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya‘ opposite Simbu. The year, however, ended on a none-too-happy note for Trisha as she had to contend with a failure in ‘Manmadhan Ambu‘, her first film with Kamal Haasan which also had Maddy and Sangeetha playing important roles.
She is presently awaiting the release of ‘Mankatha‘ opposite Ajith Kumar, which would be the latter’s landmark 50th film. The film also stars Laxmi Rai and Bollywood’s Kainaat Arora besides our own ‘action king’ Arjun. This year, Trisha would be completing her decade-long stay in the industry during when she has acted in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi films.
Trisha sounds bored with what she is being made to do at present. “To be really frank, I am tired of playing typical heroine roles; I can’t keep running around trees, romancing heroes and dancing with them forever. Whether I should continue to do the same role(s) again and again is the question I have been asking myself repeatedly.
“I would love to do serious and challenging roles, like the one I did on ‘Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya’ or ‘Abhiyum Naanum’. I’m almost trying to reinvent myself. My present projects include ‘Mankatha’ with Ajith and the Telugu remake of ‘Kaavalanl opposite Venkatesh,” says Trisha.
She said that she was somewhat upset that she couldn’t be part of the Hindi remake of ‘Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya’. Though Trisha was said to be in contention to play the role, the role finally went to Emy Jackson who had made a promising in director Vijay’s ‘Madarasapattinam’.
