After having put behind her all the hassles, gossips and unpleasant incidents of 2006, Sneha is starting this new year afresh.
With her old, charming smile, she met reporters today. Without her father or bodyguard around her, she greeted every reporter personally with warm wishes for the new year.
You look very happy?
"I don't think anyone has gone through the controversies that I have. But I'm at peace now. I have the support of the press and media. I am celebrating this year as a good year because of the press that has given me so much support. I am indebted to them.
Everybody has to struggle at some time or other. As far as I am concerned, I'm like the phoenix bird. I feel like I've risen from the ashes. However sad I am, the minute I hear a joke, I can dissolve into laughter. That trait as well as my fighting instinct will stand me in good stead in the film field, I think."
Your next step?
"Film wise, last year was good for me. I did a good film titled Pudupettai. The Telugu film Sri Ramadoss with Nagarjuna should most probably go for the national award. After seeing the film, Mrs. Sowcar Janaki called me and appreciated my performance. It was a great moment for me to hear words of praise from such a veteran actress. This year is also starting off very well. From tomorrow, I'm starting shooting for Pallikoodam. I'm going to enjoy doing the role. After seeing the film, you will wonder if this is Sneha.
Ever since I heard the story from Thankar Bachchan sir, I became a teacher, but not like the old role done by Radha. This character is rather colorful and would definitely be a milestone in my career. I'm also in the re-make of Naan Avanillai, a Balachander film. How many will get such a golden opportunity like that?
On the personal front, there's nothing except cinema...cinema...and more cinema! I still have a long way to go. I've only now started getting a name."
As she gave another charming smile, our hearts melted again!
