“I am quite knowledgeable when it comes to Hindi films, which means I don"t have to look for any external sources to tell me what"s happening in the industry", says Trisha who has been in the world of glamour for 8 years and has worked in 35 odd films down South. “I may not have my base in Mumbai but I pretty much know who is ruling or calling the shots."
No wonder, she is not looking at anyone in particular to hold her hand and act as a guiding force. For someone with a massive acting experience behind her, Trisha does trust no one but herself when it comes to picking just the right project and working with the right people.
“Honestly, it is just I who takes the call, whether it is my personal or professional life", smiles Trisha who made her debut opposite Akshay Kumar recently in Khatta Meetha. “I have friends from the industry who have been supportive so even when I am in Chennai, I keep getting all the updates. I am well aware about the scripts which are being worked upon, who is going to be the director and whether it would make sense for me to work in it. Once convinced, I take a decision and then go for it."
It is this very conviction due to which she talks fondly about her next film, a remake of Tamil film Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa with Prateik which would be directed by Gautham Menon. “That"s right. I am playing someone totally different than what I was in Khatta Meetha. I have complete idea about what the role demands from me because I have also worked in the original. The pairing with Prateik itself shows that the characterization would be much younger."
One can well understand why she is so exited. After all for someone who had to play the role of a collector in her very first Hindi film, playing someone younger would anyways would be much desirable.
She may be a newbie in the world of Hindi films but that doesn"t maker her perturbed. Ask Trisha and she would say with utmost confidence that she knows how to make her way into the industry. To add to that, Trisha is sure about not quite looking for a Godfather in Bollywood to make that happen.
