Actress Amala Paul has confessed during an interview at Hyderabad that she had been in love in her life. “I had been in love not once but twice: first time when I was in School and then during my stint in College,” said Amala, showing no signs of anxiety about the delay in the theatrical release of her latest Tamil film Thalaiva.
After debuting in films with the on-screen name Anaka, she switched to Amala Paul, a name she is comfortable with. “When I was in School, I liked a boy and wanted to meet him frequently. Even now I’m not sure whether it was love or mere attraction. As days wore on, I found him to be less exciting. When I was in college, I had another attraction and I still doubt whether it was real love or not.
“The person whom I would get married has to be a person who goes out and helps others on his own. He would surely have to be sensitive to others’ needs. I hail from an educated family and was a model when a Mollywood director spotted me and offered me a chance to star in Malayalam films. That film, however, did not do well,but I was determined to succeed as an actress.
“Mynaa was the biggest turning point in my career. I regretted a film which I did in Tamil early in my career and had decided never to take up such controversial roles,” concluded Amala, without referring to the film by name ( Sindhu Samaveli)
