Amala Paul has no regrets playing secondary roles to others

Upcoming actress Amala Paul is candid enough to admit that she is not so keen on signing solo-heroine films alone. If the script is okay and the role offered to her has scope for her to display her acting credentials, she won’t mind doing multi-starrers and part of films having more than one heroine, she clarifies.

The actress is awaiting with bated breath the release of her big film ‘Deiva Thirumagal’ opposite Vikram this Firday. For Amala, who hit big time with last year’s Prabhu Solomon-directed ‘Mynaa’, the film is a significant one as it would be watched by critics as well as the media whether Amala is able to keep up the promise she displayed in plenty in ‘Mynaa’. Anushka Shetty is the other heroine in ‘Mynaa’.

Reports say that she has also been approached to play the female lead opposite Narain, who plays a role with gray shades, in the film ‘Mugamoodi’ to be directed by Mysskin. The film has Jiiva, the hottest star in Kollywood at present, in the lead role. She does confirm that she has been approached to star opposite Narain but says nothing has been finalized as yet.

By her own admission, she has no qualms in starring in films more than one heroine. The orthodox Christian Malayalee girl has a handful of projects in her kitty including ‘Vettai’ which has stars like Madhavan, Aarya and Sameera Reddy. “Though I got many solo-heroine projects, the scripts appeared too weak and I had to turn them down. I strongly feel that one should do a film just for the sake of doing it. The role should be a meaningful one.”

She says she’s award that she is not being prominently shown in the advertisements of ‘Deiva Thirumagal’ in the print and television media. “Vikram has given an amazing performance and the film is full of Vikram’s unmatched portrayal of his character. As such, he deserves all the publicity and promotion he has been getting; Truly speaking, I absolutely have no regrets that I’m not being featured prominently,” smiles Amala.
