South Indian audiences sat up and noticed this luscious, pan-chewing, red-lipped drug dealer in Pithamagan. Her effortless portrayal as a soft-hearted woman who hid behind a hard and prickly exterior was more than a match for the two towering male leads — Vikram and Suriya. Her role in Uyir is still praised to high heavens and with good reason.
She puts in a lot of effort preparing for her roles, doing a lot of research for the characters she plays on the screen. Makeup for her is not to make her look good; it is to get into the character.
Though money is important, the satisfaction that she gets from doing intense and memorable roles is what drives her. That is the reason she is seen only in a film or two per year. At present, she is working in Telugu movies Indrajit and Kanagam, which have subjects giving more importance to the female lead.
Sangeetha is confident that her performance in Kanagam will win her accolades. Not a feminist, but one who truly believes in her innate abilities, Sangeetha’s eagerness to prove herself onscreen will surely win her many awards in the years to come.
