Tamil star Trisha forays into Bollywood, teams up with AkshayJune 12th, 2009 - 2:46 pm ICT by IANS
Chennai, June 12 (IANS) Director Priyadarshan has signed Tamil star Trisha to play the female lead in his forthcoming Hindi film starring Akshay Kumar.
“I suggested Trisha’s name as Akshay wanted a fresh face for his ‘Khatta Meetha’. He saw a few of her films, met her, was impressed and she is in,” Priyadarshan told IANS.
Trisha says she is happy that her mentor is giving her a break in Hindi films.
“My lucky director Priyadarshan, who introduced me in Tamil movies, is giving me a break in Hindi films too. After my good debut in ‘Lesa, Lesa’, I was reticent about my career because of a nagging feeling I would be a misfit in cinema. Now with a firm foot in the south, things have worked out for Bollywood as well,” Trisha told IANS.
Scheduled to go on floors in October, the movie will be a lighthearted comedy with six songs by Pritam Chakraborty.
Born Trisha Krishnan in 1983, the model-turned-actress has starred in 28 Tamil and Telugu films since her debut in 1999. She is the second southern star in recent times to enter Bollywood after Asin Thottumkal’s successful entry with hit film “Ghajini” opposite Aamir Khan.
