Actress Aishwarya Rajesh, who impressed critics and audiences alike with her performance in National Award-winning Tamil drama Kaaka Muttai, has landed the leading role opposite actor Arjun Rampal in her Hindi debut.
The talented actress joins the list of heroines like Sridevi, Asin, Priyanka Chopra, Aishwarya Rai and many others, who went on to act in Hindi films after making their debut in Tamil.
"I play the leading lady in Arjun Rampal's latest production 'Daddy'. It's a very bold, performance-oriented role, and the team had originally cast someone else. However, when Arjun saw my performance in 'Kaaka Muttai', he roped me in," Aishwarya told IANS.
It was one of the girls from the production team who suggested Aishwarya's name to Arjun.
"This girl recommended my name after she watched 'Kaaka Muttai'. Arjun was thrilled with my performance and immediately got me on board, and didn't mind my language barrier," she said, and added that she's elated with the opportunity.
Aishwarya, who was last seen in Arulnithi's Aarathu Sinam, is currently shooting for a yet-untitled Tamil project with actor Sibiraj. She also has a host of Tamil projects under her belt, including Dharma Durai and Kutramum Thandanaiyum.
