Actress Priya Anand is hoping to get third time lucky. After two not-so-successful ventures, the actress is fervently hoping that her third film ‘180’, which would soon be hitting the screens State-wide, does well and puts her back in the reckoning among Tamil actresses.
After the twin failures in ‘Vamanan’ and ‘Pugaipadam’, Priya plays one of the two heroines in ‘180’ which also has Nithya Menon as the other heroine. The film, incidentally, also marks the return to Tamil films for actor Siddharth who plays the male lead in the film. This would be Siddharth’s first Tamil film in almost seven years after his ‘Ayudha Ezhuthu’ opposite Trisha.
Though her Telugu film market is going steady, she is in need of an ‘urgent’ hit film in Tamil to sustain herself in Kollywood. She says her role as Renu, a ‘typical Chennai girl’, would be acceptable to the masses and help the film become a hit at the box-office. With no ‘godfather’ to back her up, the picture-perfect Priya earnestly hopes that ‘180’ would succeed in a big way at the box-office.
Debutant director Jeyandra has done a fabulous job, feels Priya and adds that though the script is a hero-centric one, the director has given ‘equal significance’ to the character of both the heroines. She says she enjoyed an excellent rapport with Nithya during the shooting and adds that she has dubbed in her own voice for her character in the film.
Priya, who neither smokes nor drinks and hates late-night parties, believes that dubbing her own voice gives an actress an identity among the audience.
