I only can talk about myself and my experience. Honestly, working on your own terms is difficult for a newcomer but not impossible. I am an example of that.
What you are is what you are, and I don't think you should ever fight it. But as an actor, I feel lucky to play different parts.
I feel that I don't know anything, I don't know how to act, but I can surrender myself to a director I respect and love. I feel very lucky to be a part of their visions.
People who can actually challenge me and push me and almost push me to breaking point and extract a performance out of me, I really enjoy that.
I saw Mani sir's 'Bombay,' and I wanted to be a Mani sir heroine.
The whole point of creativity is that it has no boundaries of language, region, and age.
Dhanush is an insanely incredible actor. To be directed by him has been nothing short of a learning experience.
It's always exciting to work with people you admire.
