Talking about Vijay, Amala said, "It is a dream come true for any heroine to work with Vijay. He doesn't mind giving as many takes if the director wants and never questions."
Learn't Many Things From Vijay
Vijay treated all of us with respect and we all were like one big family during the shoot, and said that she learned many things from the actor, mainly dedication.
She Got Enough Space
Amala says her role was well written. Normally in superstar films, heroines are mere eye-candy and will be there in some comedy, love scenes and three songs. But she got enough space in Thalaivaa script.
She says her role was a meaty role sans any glamour and there was no cleavage or midriff shown in any of the songs in Thalaivaa.
Amala said, "In the first half I play this normal bubbly girl, but suddenly I had to don this uniform and look serious. I worked hard on body language and it was challenge."
Thalaivaa Release Controversy
She continued, "It's disheartening that all this happened. But it was my fans and friends all across the globe who kept me going, through their opinion and encouragement on Twitter."
Acting With Vijay
She added, "I always like to take up challenges and to match Vijay was not easy. He was very encouraging and I have to confess that it was extremely taxing for me. I even sprained my back but we were able to give the best results."
She said, "I am a secure person. I care only about my work and films. There are enough films for all of us and I am friendly with everyone."
