Amrita, an actress from Kannada, is all set to invade Kollywood through Parthi Bhaskar's second film Aayiram Nilave Vaa.
She is the only daughter of Kannada music director Ricky Dicorder, who had an association with Tamil musician Deva for more than 10 years. Her debut film in Kannada was Vidhyarthi. She then went on to do films like Chanakya and Deepthi. Now, she is going to act with director Parthi's younger brother Hari Bhaskar in her debut Tamil film. Srikanth Deva, brother-in-law of the director will set the tunes for the film.
"I'm not a new face to Chennai. My family resided here for more than 10 years. I know the language very fluently. Since my father is closely related to this field, my interest in acting started right from my school days. Director Parthi Bhaskar is also my family friend. I'm proud to enter in Tamil cinema. At present, I'm doing a Telugu film too and its shooting is going to complete soon. After this film, my concentration will be in Tamil only. I'm sure that I will get a place in Tamil like Khushboo and Simran," said Amrita after the pooja of Aayiram Nilave Vaa.
