Chhaya Singh, who romanced national award-winning actor Dhanush in the hit film Thiruda Thirudi almost a decade back, is all set to play a Bollywood actress in an upcoming film titled as Pattinapakkam.
Chhaya, who was last spotted as Udhayanidhi’s sister in Idhu Kathirvelan Kadhal, is essaying a significant role in Pattinapakkam. Her role is that of a Bollywood actress who later quits films to become a full-fledged housewife. Kalaiyarasan of Madras fame plays the hero in this film.
Chhaya was spotted dancing for ‘item numbers’ in Vijay’s and Vikram’s films but disappeared completely before resurfacing with Idhu Kathirvelan Kadhal. The actress, who shot to fame with the Manmatha Rasa song in Thiruda Thirudi, got married to Krishna, her co-star in the horror film Ananthapurathu Veedu. She pairs up opposite Manoj K. Jayan in Pattinapakkam.
“My role is quite an emotion-filled one,” says Chhaya. “It’s about how I escape from the evil designs of a person, who had been my friend till my marriage, and who had been after me. Kalaiyarasan has put up a stellar show in the film,” says Chhaya.
Anuswara Kumar, Charlie, Yog Jaypee, John Vijay, Madhumitha, M.S. Bhasker, Madan Bob, Rekha Suresh, Rosin and Asif Shaikh play prominent roles in the film.
