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.
