Actress Padmapriya is on top of the world, having bagged Filmfare Awards recently for her performance in Karutha Pakshikal, which has Mammootty as her hero. She plays matured roles most of the time but her approach on glamour is quite different. She thinks that there is no harm in using body as a property.
“After the very docile girl in Thavamai, I had to provide some shock value to the audience. When Demi Moore does a striptease, we don"t call it vulgar. In fact, I loved her in the film. And when you have the body, what"s the harm in using it as a prop, be it in a saree or a dress? But I don"t agree with doing it for titillation", says the actress.
She acts opposite senior actors like Mammootty and Mohanlal most of the time, and thus missing out young and energetic roles. She does feel she should have done more films with young actors earlier in her career but she has no regrets because good roles go to only big actors in Malayalam. She said that she has learned a lot from the senior actors.
