Trisha is at the cross-roads of her career. The actress, who debuted in Tamil films almost a decade back with Priyadarshan’s Lesa Lesa opposite Maddy and Shaam, has been finding the going tough for the past few years. Over the past decade, she found stardom in Telugu movies too and starred opposite almost all the top heroes in Tollywood and Kollywood.

Reports which surfaced over the weekend suggested that Trisha was reportedly ‘rejected’ by Jiiva for an upcoming untitled film. The director of the film, though, had clarified that nothing had been finalized as yet. Lead actors Suriya and Vijay had long back moved away from Trisha and are looking forward to the Tamannaahs and Kajals and Ileanas as their on-screen pairs. Trisha, who turns 29 later this year, finds herself on a slippery wicket.

She insists that she is very much fit to be paired opposite ‘young heroes’ and adds that “Age doesn’t matter for actors and actresses. I have never rejected offers to pair up opposite my heroes – young and the old. I feel actresses should only bother about the script and their character(s) in them. If the treatment is good, the film ought to give good results at the box-ofrice.

“I have starred opposite the likes of Kamal Haasan, Chiranjeevi and Nagarjuna who are all past 50; at the same time, I have also starred opposite stars like Ajith Kumar, Pavan Kalyan and Ravi Teja who are in their forties. I think I looked perfect on-screen matches to heroes like Prabhas, Vijay and Mahesh Babu, who are in their late thirties and heroes like Simbu and Jr. NTR, who are in their late twenties.

“Just because an actress (like me) pairs up opposite senior heroes, she shouldn’t be thought of as an ‘aged’ actress,” Trisha noted.
