A former actress with a beautiful pair of eyes, Banupriya has returned to Kollywood after a long gap with a new role. She will act as the mother of Dhanush in Pollathavan. It is Urvasi Archana, a national award winner, who played the role of Dhanush's mother in Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram, and the same will hit the screens on 27 th April.
After a few days shoot, the unit of Pollathavan has decided to take a familiar actress for the mother's role. Finally, they have approached Banupriya to act as Dhanush's mother. As she was eagerly awaiting a re-entry in Kollywood, she immediately accepted the offer and came for the shoot also.
When asked about her comeback, the classical-dancer-cum-actress replied, 'I'm very happy to walk on the floors again. Previously, many producers and directors had offered a lot of roles to me. But due to some personal commitments, I was not in the position to accept those offers. Now I have found some free time in my life and I would like to utilize the time meaningfully. I found the script of Pollathavan attractive, and there is enough scope for good performance in the role for an actress like me...'
