Radha’s daughter Thulasi while speaking to the media said, ” My mother Radha and her elder sister Ambika are actresses. Because of this people who see me use to ask that when I will take up acting. I used to reply that I will not at all act in films.
I was telling like this until I got the opportunity to act in Manirathnam’s film. Who will refuse to act in his film? Before the shooting commenced I came to Chennai 2 months back itself to get trained. I used to go to the gym and practice dancing and acting regularly without taking any break.
This will continue even in the late nights. None of my family members including my mother did accompany me. They felt that I was safe in the hands of Manirathnam. Though my whole family belonged to cinema industry no one gave me any tips. The reason for this is that Manirathnam was my mentor.
I am currently acting in Yaan which has Jiiva in the lead role. Jiiva was the hero in the film Ko in which my sister Karthika debuted. Jiiva is an experienced actor and hence he gives me lots of acting tips. When we both speak during the shooting intervals our talks will be always about Karthika. Even if we talk about something it will end up with Karthika only.”
