“Performance-oriented roles will live in the minds of the audience for a long time when compared to glamourous ones. The latter only gives short-lived joy. I understood this with films like Arundhathi and Deiva Thirumagal,” says Anushka.
Saying that both the films had fetched her loads of laurels, the actress adds: “Deiva Thirumagal and Arundhathi offered me meaty characters. There is no place for glamour in these two movies. And I believe I have done justice to them.”
On Vikram, the protagonist of ‘Deiva Thirumagal’, she says, “From the first day of the shoot till the last day, Vikram was only seen as Krishna, a man with the mental maturity of a five-year-old. He had totally transformed himself to the role.”
Meanwhile, ‘Deiva Thirumagal’ has successfully completed its 25-day run today, with accolades still pouring in from various quarters. Produced by Sri Rajakaliamman Medias and released by UTV Motion Pictures, the film was directed by AL Vijay.
