She looks young and beautiful and she acts well, but young heroes run away from her as from a strict older sister!
She acted opposite Arya in Pattiyal but no one else opts for her as heroine. The opportunities she gets as leading lady is only to older heroes like Mammooty, Mohanlal and Suresh Gopi. Why is that?
The question annoys Padmapriya. There's nothing demeaning in acting with older heroes, moreover one learns a lot when acting with them, she says.
Padmapriya is well read and has good knowledge about films. Here's what she has to say about timings. "When Pierce Brosnan did his first film as James Bond, he was 51. So there's no connection between age and acting."
That may be so, but you are 20 plus and you are teamed opposite 50 plus heroes?
"Who said so? Do you know I'm acting with Prithviraj in a film," she answers with pride.
We were almost tempted to ask if the role was of Prithviraj's sister, then we decided on discretion and kept our mouths shut!
