Actress Aishwarya Rajesh, the ‘Tamil’ actress who actually speaks in Tamil in all her films (unlike the likes of Sneha, Nayantara and Trisha), has stated that her upcoming film Chekka Civantha Vaanam directed by ace film-maker Mani Ratnam is easily the high-point of her career.

The Kaakka Muttai actress is one of the busiest actresses in Tamil films and has some very prestigious projects on hand including Gautham Vasudev Menon’s Dhuruva Natchathiram with Vikram, Vetrimaaran’s Vada Chennai with natioal award-winning actor Dhanush and Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Civantha Vaanam with Aravid Swamy, Vijay Sethupathi, Simbu, Jyothika and Adito Rao Hydari.

“I play a slum-living girl in Vada Chennai and didn’t find the dialect tough as I too hail from Chennai. It was initially tough to star in Menon’s Dhuruva Natchathiram but I later adjusted myself to suit Menon’s style of working,” says Aishwarya.

“Getting to star in Chekka Civantha Vaanam is easily the high-point of my career; in fact, I would have said ‘yes’ even if Mani Sir asked me to make a ‘blink-and-miss’ appearance in the film. He has thankfully given me a character which would have a huge impact on the minds of movie-goers; I can’t reveal my character right now but can only assure that it would be spoken about for a long time,” she concludes.
