The film Arima Nambi which had Vikram Prabhu in the lead role was an important film for Priya Anand. She was also in the midst of controversies because of her drinking sequences in the film.
She put an end to the controversy by saying that she had only acted in the bar sequence and by doing so she did not go against Tamil culture.
After this Priya Anand had acted in the films Irumbu Kuthirai and Oru Oorla Rendu Raja but these films never gave her a helping hand.
Now Priya Anand is pinning her hopes in the film Vai Raja Vai directed by Aishwarya Dhanush. At this juncture, director Anand Shankar who directed Arima Nambi has given Priya Anand the second heroine role in a film which will have Vikram in the lead role.
Though Kajal Aggarwal is donning the female lead role, Priya Anand also has song sequences with Vikram. In any case Priya Anand wants to prove her mettle and this is the reason for her accepting the second heroin role.
