Tamil star Aishwarya Rajesh joins the cast of Saamy Square
Role of Trisha, who played the lead in Saamy, is out of its sequel, Saamy Square, directed by Hari, is well known. But now, the Vikram-Keerthy Suresh-starrer has a new addition — Aishwarya Rajesh, who is said to be Trisha’s replacement.
An excited Aishwarya, who has already begun shooting for her portions, says, “I haven’t had a proper commercial release yet in my career. Being a part of Hari sir’s film got me really excited. This will be a proper commercial action film, with Keerthy and I as the female leads. For starters, I have a really nice song in the film. As for the role, many say that I have replaced Trisha’s role. But I wouldn’t call it that way. I am elated to be working with Vikram sir for the second time (following Gautham Vasudev Menon’s Dhruva Natchathiram). We have been shooting for quite some time now and there are around 15 days of shoot left for me.”
With several films in Aishwarya’s kitty, the actress is happy to be experimenting with different roles. “In Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, I play a classy character. My role as a north Madras girl in Vada Chennai, too, is pretty different. I have finished dubbing for both the films. I play a woman cricketer in Kanaa. In Dhruva Natchathiram, I play a journalist. So, I am happy I am getting to do different roles in each of these films,” she says.
As for working with Mani Ratnam, the actress says that she had a fabulous experience. “Initially, I was a little scared and nervous to work with him. But he is extremely comfortable to work with. In fact, in my career as an actress so far, I have felt most comfortable while working with him. He liked the way I emoted and okayed my scenes in one or two takes. He was very happy with my performance and I am only honoured to have worked with Mani sir,” she smiles.
