Actress Trisha Krishnan, who has woven a successful career for herself in the competitive world of Tamil cinema, is largely happy about how things have panned out in the last 17 years since her debut. But the 33-year-old has just one regret.
Despite being one of the most successful actresses in the Tamil film industry for such a long period of time, the Yennai Arindhaal girl is not happy about one thing - not sharing screen space with superstar Rajinikanth.
About Women-centric Films
"I am doing a lot of films which are women-centric, and many upcoming directors, with whom I speak, are really interested in crafting such roles. There are many talented guys out there... who'd I like to work with? Karthik Subbaraj," she told DC.
On Glamorous Roles
When asked about taking up glamorous roles and if it is a conscious decision by her, she has said, "I just do it if I like the film and the role. I don't think about what will happen next. It's black and white for me."
Trisha has been signing a lot of horror-comedies and the actress feels it is time she takes a break from the genre. "It somehow happened one after the other, and I should take a break from the genre now," she has said.
On Surviving For 17 Years
When asked how she has managed to survive in the industry for such a long period of time, Trisha has termed it as a "backhanded compliment", saying that it's her job to act!
She also thinks luck has favored her throughout her career. "I think I am blessed since people have waited for my films. It also means that more than talent or ability, luck plays a big part. And, I am very lucky."
On Dhanush's 'Kodi'
Trisha has revealed that talking about Kodi makes her feel excited as she has played a very interesting role in the movie - a character she has not played before.
Trisha is awaiting the releases of Nayaki and Kodi. She is also working on Bhogi - a social thriller which also stars Poonam Bajwa and Oviya. Also, her latest flick Mohini went on the floors recently.
Speaking to Deccan Chronicle at an event in Chennai, Trisha has expressed her disappointment over her absence in a Rajinikanth-starrer.
"I am really upset about not acting with Superstar Rajinikanth. I mean who wouldn't? Even a budding star in the country would dream of sharing the screen with him," she has said.
Among the upcoming stars, Trisha wants to act with Vijay Sethupathi and Sivakarthikeyan. "I would like to act with Vijay Sethupathy and Siva Karthikeyan. They are doing some good cinema."
Trisha is happy about starring in a host of woman-centric films of late. She has said directors nowadays are coming up with more number of women-oriented movies, which is a healthy sign.
