On the eve of release of the film, Radha has cautioned the newcomers in the industry to be ‘polite’ and ‘obedient’ in order to achieved the desired amount of success in their careers.
“Actress who have displayed the ‘I-know-everything’ attitude have bitten the dust in the film industry; I have seen it. I would like my daughter to be as successful (if not more) as I was. When I was on top in the industry, it didn’t get to my head. Only now when people speak highly of my films and my performances do I realize that I have done ‘something’ worth talking about.
“I would advise all the newcomers to be very polite. They should be within their limits. While an actress is on top of her career, she should plan her family life as well,” said the veteran.
Point noted, Ma’am!
