Pretty actress Nandhini, who will be making her Tamil debut in Graghanam, is excited about the project. The film also stars Kreshna, Chandran of Kayal fame, Karunas and Karunakaran in important roles.
Nandhini, who has acted in Telugu and Kannada movies, has opened
up about her role in the upcoming thriller and how she managed to
bag it, in an interview to Times of India.
"I came to Chennai for an audition. I saw many pretty girls from
Mumbai auditioning for the role, which made me wonder if I will be
able to get through. Later, I gave my audition that went on for
nearly two hours. I went back to Hyderabad and got a call from Elan
saying that I made it for the female lead role. I couldn't believe
it. Nevertheless, it will be a great launch for me in Kollywood," she has said.
The young actress has said she had to undergo a lot of training
in order to prepare for the role. She is paired opposite Kreshna in
the film, which is being directed by debutant Elan.
"I play a model, who aspires to become an actress. My character
is very bubbly, but at the same time, crucial to the film's script.
I was training under Mime Gopi for several weeks. Kreshna and
Chandran are two phenomenal actors. I had to compete with them. So,
we had several trial shoots before the actual shoot began."
Like any other newcomer, Nandhini too, feels that Tamil film
industry is very professional in going about its business.
"Kollywood films are very realistic. They concentrate on acting
and performance. The team here was very professional. It didn't
look like Elan's debut film. He was very oraganised and helpful. I
am looking forward to my debut."
