Samantha is fully excited about her role in forthcoming movie Neethane En Ponvasnatham. More importantly, she is happy to be working with Gautham Menon after Ye Maaya Chesave. The actress spoke about the project, her co-star and more. Here, are the excerpts from the interview:
This is the second time you are working with Gautham Menon, so give us a little peek into the movie.
Although I have been a part of an amazing movie like Vinnaithandi Varuvaya (Telugu version Ye Maaya Chesave), Neethane En Ponvasantham will surely outdo the brilliance of VTV, it is such a realistic movie. Nithya of NEP is way stronger than Jessi of VTV, Nithya will tread on your heart and will flutter like a butterfly all over you with her strong emotions and will be unforgettable.
I have to call myself lucky as the movie traverses across four stages of my life and all the emotions expressed would be the highlight of the movie. It will not only engage everyone but will also take them on a whirlwind tour of their own past. My first couple of movies in Tamil didn't do too well and NEP is giving me the ideal launch pad.
How is the combination with Jeeva sans the camera and the mask?
It has just been totally natural and hence comfortable. Needless to say that Gautham Menon sir's movies are well known for the chemistry between the leads. Minnale (Maddy - Reema Sen), Kaakha Kaakha (Surya - Jyothika), VTV (Simbu-Trisha) stand as timeless pairs. NEP (Jeeva- Samantha) will take this list to the next level. We reflect the contemporary lovers - more practical than emotional and over the top
How does it feel to be a part of a project that has Maestro Illayaraja scoring the music?
Amazing to say the least. Every song is heart warming and the visuals of GVM complement them to give us all a treat.
