Though Padmapriya is a busy bee in Malayalam cinema, she is having only one film at present in Tamil. It is Satham Podathey, a Vasanth creation.
Some producers avoid this talented actress due to her rigid nature. Some directors don't even turn to her side due to her non-cooperation in 'discussions'. May be she thinks that her Malayalam counterparts only are more convenient to deal with than anybody else!
But now she has got one more offer in Tamil. It is from Samy, the Director of block buster Uyir. This time also, the director is taking up a controversial subject to make the movie click at the box office. According to the director, the story will be based on the love affair of a prostitute. Padmapriya will play the lead role in the movie. It means that she is taking up the challenge of playing a prostitute on screen.
It is indeed a paradox that an actress always tries to establish herself as a person of virtue in her real life; but when it comes to the reel life, she is proud to play the role of a prostitute. Padmapriya is also one among such actresses. She told us that acting in such a challenging role is a matter of pride for her, and she is hopeful of winning a few awards for the role too!
