Bangalore, July 30 (IANS) South Indian actress Sneha, who has acted opposite top stars like Kamal Haasan, Mammooty and Nagarjuna, is all set to complete 50 films with a cameo in Rajnikanth’s fortcoming “Kuselan”. The 26-year-old, who made her debut with Malayalam film “Engane Oru Nila Pakshi” by director Anil Babu, made her way into audiences’ hearts with her endearing ‘thousand watt’ smile. In her career spanning seven years, she has acted in movies of all south Indian languages - Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil and Kannada.
Apart from her smile, she is also known for having rejecting movies as she doesn’t believe in wearing skimpy clothes on screen. Her popularity has soared to great heights and she is often compared to late south Indian star Soundarya.
The actress, who is now upbeat about working with Rajnikanth, said: “I feel proud that I’m compared to a top actress like Soundarya. I would like to be remembered for my performances than my glamour. I feel satisfied if people say that I have acted very well in films like ‘Sri Ramadasu’ and ‘Autograph’.”
She added: “I am not against actresses who wear skimpy costumes for films. But I don’t wear them because I don’t feel comfortable. I have rejected requests to wear some costumes.”
A Telugu girl who was born in Mumbai and brought up in Dubai, Sneha can boast of having worked with the best of actors and has given many hits so far.
The actress has starred opposite Kamal Hassan (”Vasool Raja”), Mammootty (”Thiruppu Gulam”), Ajit (”Jana”), Nagarjuna (”Sree Amdasu”) and Balakrishna (”Pandurangadu”). Her performance in Tamil films “Autograph”, “Parthibhan” and “Kanavu”, and Telugu films like “Radha Gopalam”, “Sree Ramadasu” and Sankranthi have been appreciated by audiences and critics alike.
“I have worked with the best of directors and have been lucky enough to get extraordinary roles in my career. My ambition is to work with top directors like Mani Ratnam sir and Shankar sir. And I also want to do a film with Laletten (Mohanlal). Though I have worked in Malayalam films, I’m yet to get an opportunity to work with him,” Sneha said.
The young actress is presently acting with Mammootty in the bilingual “Vande Matharam” and with Prasanna in “Achchamundu Achchamundu”.
