It is very rare to find a Tamil actress in Kollywood doing a bold role as they are generally shy to expose their bodies to the Tamil cinema viewers. But Bharathi, a girl from Coimbatore, is an exceptional case in the industry. She is acting in a prostitute's role in the film Ammuvagiya Naan.Parthiban is playing the lead role after his debacle of Pacha Kudire in the beginning of 2006. He plays the role of a writer in this film and was impressed a lot with the script of the director Padma Magan. The film is being produced by Rupas Parker. Both the director and the producer have already joined for a film titled Pallavan.
Initially, the director told the story to many leading actresses. They too were impressed with the story, but refused to act in the role due to an image crisis. Then Padma Magan flew to Mumbai and tried his level best to convince some of the Bollywood actresses. When all turned their back on the project, a local girl with stunning looks came forward to do the role of a sex worker. That girl is none other than Bharathi. She is very much excited about her new project, and the experience of working with an actor of Parthiban's range.
'I have strong reasons to feel that the movie would bring me lots of fame. Realism is the key word in my character with a focus on the dialect. I have vibed well with Parthiban, whose support has helped me in understanding my character. I am keenly awaiting the release of my new film.' Bharathi said.
'Generally in most of the Tamil films, love begins with the meeting of the eyes, then travels to the hearts and slowly slips in to lust. But in 'Ammu...' love begins with lust; and thereafter slowly slips in to the hearts. Bharathi has done the role superbly, and mere words cannot describe the qualities of the experienced director - actor Parthiban' says Padma Magan.
