Along with the critical reception, she has been loving how much fans have embraced Janu, with even what she described as a simple yellow kurta becoming an iconic look since the film’s release. Speaking to the Times of India, she said, “The love I’ve received for Jaanu is overwhelming and very unexpected. Yes, I knew it is a good role and I have felt that way about many of my films. But I did not know that the character would be this well-received. I knew the film would do well and people will relate to Ram and Janu, But I didn’t know a simple yellow kurta will go viral. We had a look freeze.. and when I saw I was like ‘is that it? ‘ It was so simple. But the simple thing worked. I don’t know as yet being an actor what it is that makes a character connects so much. And that is why I think certain characters are magic. I think Jaanu is one of those after Jessie, where people could relate to it. I think love is an easy genre to reach people because there is not one person who cannot relate to it. I don’t have a school love story or a college love story, but there is something in the film that touched me. That’s when I knew it would work with everybody.”

It’s clear that Janu is as important to her as she was to us, fans!
Trisha will be looking forward to continuing her recent success with five movies expected to release in 2020, including M Saravanan’s Raangi and NH10 inspired Garjanai. She is also very much a part of Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan.
