Priyamani says, “I am very happy for getting an opportunity to play a role under a great director like Mani Ratnam. It is a dream come true for me." Though her recent release Drona was released and bumped at the box office, she was happy at her role in this film.
She says, “Though the film was a dud commercially, everyone identified me in the film. Especially my bikini attire got a lot of attention and it has become a hot topic as every journalist cannot resist to question about the dress in that film. I was supposed to appear in such costume as per the demand of the film. Though many heroines have sported bikinis, I am proud of that the costume as it is has assumed significance."
