Actress Sonia Aggarwal has just managed the unthinkable. She has bagged offers to play lead roles in a couple of films, which is not necessarily the case with Kollywood which perceives married (divorced, too) actresses as ‘unglamourous’ to be heroine material. In this backdrop, Sonia’s bagging two films is really appreciable.
The actress, who married director Selvaraghavan a few years back when she was on top of her profession, divorced him last year and made a desperate attempt for a comeback in films. She did a brilliant cameo opposite Prakashraj in the recent hit film ‘Vaanam’ and was widely noticed by the critics as well as the movie-goers.
Though Selvaraghavan recently married for the second time by tying the nuptial knot around Gitanjali’s neck, Sonia is not said to be too keen to have another man in her life so soon. “Though we divorced, I’m happy that Selvaa has gone ahead and married again. As far as I’m concerned, (second) marriage is l(e)ast on the list of my priorities. At present, I’m trying to retrieve the lost ground in Kollywood,” she said.
Looking sexier than ever, Sonia plays the role of an actress in ‘Oru Nadigaiyin Vakkumoolam’ (ONV), a film which is likely to poke deep into the ‘uglier’ side of the world of entertainment industry in general and into the lives of actress in particular. “Right now I enjoy what I am doing and don’t want to get in to the chores of running a family again,” adds Sonia.
She says that she is not even averse to doing a film with Selvaa again. “It was he who introduced me to movies. If he has a nice script which he believes could be handled by me, I’d surely accept the offer if it is made,” smiles Sonia, who also plays the lead role in ‘Matha Pitha Guru’. In fact, she plays triple roles in the film, something which she hasn’t done before in her career. She would be essaying the roles of a journalist, a God-woman (self-styled, though) and a ‘negative’ character. She says she can’t reveal more at this juncture.
