During the audio-launch of Bindu Madhavi’s Kazhugu last year, a prominent film-maker termed her as the junior version of ‘Silk’ Smitha, the irrepressible glam girl of 80s. The film-maker made particular reference to Madhavi’s eyes; terming them as ever-dreamy, he said her eyes reminded him of the late ‘Silk’.
Now that Bindu has started appearing in more Tamil films in recent times, her Silk-like eyes have become noticed by movie-goers and audiences. Bindu’s only regret that is that no film-maker bothered to cast her in Smitha’s role while making film on her. “For some reasons, I have been branded as a ‘homely’ actress in Tamil films though I have the body to carry off any kind of glamorous clothing,” says Bindu.
While comparisons with ‘Silk’ Smitha always made her happy, the 27-year old Bindu is now said to be eyeing glam-filled roles as she thinks that this is the ‘ideal phase’ in her career wherein she can acquire a glamourous image for herself. Despite her open announcements to this effect, she hasn’t been offered the ultra-glam roles that she has been expecting to come her way.
She is said to be sounding heroes close to her that she is ready for ‘guest’ roles in films starring them if the roles are ‘glamourous enough’! Any takers?
