The girl from Mumbai had a ill-fated start to her career when she made her debut in Kollywood with ‘Kedi’. However she overcame all odds with a spirited performance in ‘Kalloori’. Also, the success of Telugu film ‘Happy Days’ propelled her career.
“Having tasted both success and failure in my career, I know how to go about my work, and I enjoy doing it”, says Tamannah, whose second innings in Tamil cinema has made her the numero uno actress of south India.
While everyone attributes their success to hard work and dedication, the petite beauty says, “I am lucky. Fortune has come calling and it has helped me be where I am today”.
“I consider myself lucky to have made it big. There are umpteen number of actresses who also work hard, but success has been eluding them. Hence I am fortunate,” she says.
About her forthcoming releases, she says, “I play an interesting role in ‘Paiyaa’. The moment director Lingusamy narrated the story to me, I fell in love with it. Vijay’s ‘Sura’ features me in an interesting role, while rarely an actress can come across a role like the one I am doing opposite ‘Jayam’ Ravi in ‘Thillalangadi’.”
