Remember Shweta, the pretty girl who played actor Ajith’s younger sister in the film ‘Aazhwar’, remembered best for Ajith’s weird costumes resembling a Hindu God while taking revenge on his enemies? Shweta, who had been in the wilderness for some time, has now bounced back well and truly in Tamil films hopping to cement her status in Kollywood.
A ramp-model prior to act in films, Shweta didn’t get many film offers after ‘sister’ act in the dud ‘Aazhwar’. Not losing heart, she acted in ‘Valluvan Vasuki’ as the female lead which again didn’t do well unfortunately but at least won her critical acclaim for the portrayal of her role in the film.
Not wanting to waste time and badly in need of some quick bucks, Shweta moved on to Tollywood where she debuted as heroine in a film opposite Jayanth, son of veteran Tamil and Telugu actor Banuchander. Making a comeback of sorts in Kollywood now, she has a handful of projects in Tamil and is quite happy about the same.
“I play the lead role in the film ‘Koottanjoru’ opposite Ajay Kumar. The film is being directed by Anbu Saravanan. I also play Arvind Krishnan’s heroine in a film titled ‘Naanum En Kaadhalum’ besides essaying the role of a village belle in Manisekar’s ‘Kalluppatti’.
‘Acting glamourously and appearing in figure-hugging costumes is part of the acting process and I would ‘expose’ according to the needs of the script,” says Shweta.
