I was certain that there is absolutely no way I would be getting a chance to act with Kamal sir anymore. But, it was during one of those days when Shankar sir asked me if I would play an important role in the film. I decided to take up the role even if it was 10 minutes. But, little did I know that I would be listening to a two-hour narration of a pivotal role I would be playing.”

The actress went on to express her glee about working with acclaimed actor Kamal Haasan, “He is Ulaganayagan, you know? Of course, I’m excited to act with him and learn so much from him. I remember dancing to the tunes of Akkada song from Indian when I was 5. Today, I’m a part of it’s sequel. It’s surreal, this moment.”
