Young and upcoming actress Amala Paul is indeed pained at the commercial interest shown by some distributors who have re-released her earlier film ‘Sindhu Samaveli’. The film, which released early last year, kicked up a huge storm as it showed Amala (known as ‘Anaka’ then) having an ‘illicit affair’ with the father of her husband.
Despite the controversy and the odd theme, the film didn’t exactly send the cash registers ringing at the box-office. After the forgettable ‘Sindhu Samaveli’, Amala signed up to play the female lead in Prabhu Solomon’s ‘Mynaa’ which went on to do very well at the box-office besides establishing Amala Paul firmly in Kollywood as one of the heroines to look for in future.
Last week, Amala had another release in the form of ‘Deiva Thirumagal’, which has Vikram and Anushka as the other leading actors in the film. The film, directed by Vijay, is doing exceptionally well besides getting appreciation from critics, movie-goers and the print and television media. Amala’s role in the film is quite a significant one. She also has ‘Vettai’ opposite Aarya coming up.
She is now said to be extremely upset that ‘Sindhu Samaveli’ has been re-released in 5 cinema halls. The distributors had tactically showed as if the film’s name was ‘Sindhu’ and has printed the name ‘Samaveli’ in too small letters to be visible at the first look. The film’s posters, appearing alongside the posers of ‘Deiva Thirumagal’, have hugely embarrassed the actress.
