When asked if she doesn't get bored doing comedies, she said, "I enjoy doing comedy and moreover, I'm starting to get different roles. For instance, I recently finished a Telugu film called Weekend Love, in which I play a comedy role that gets serious afterwards. I felt this role actually tapped the actor within me."

Juggling between two industries, Tamil and Telugu, Vidyu says it's important for her to learn Telugu.
"I don't have issues in Tamil because it's my mother tongue. However, I'm finding it difficult in Telugu and, therefore have started taking classes to learn the language. I can see the difference since I started taking classes in Telugu, and I'm happy about it," she said.
"It's important to learn the language because it helps you improvise while acting. I can see the change in my own case," she added.
Ajith Kumar's yet-to-be titled Tamil project is directed by Siva of Siruthai fame. Tamanna Bhatia will play the female lead opposite Ajith, while Santhanam, Vivek, Jayaram, Vitharth, Munish, Bala and Sohail are in the cast.
