Namitha, former ‘dreamgirl’ of many youths (as well as elders) in Kollywood, is back in action in Tamil films. The actress, whom many termed as the ultimate seductress when she debuted in Kollywood almost a decade back, has shed loads of weight now!
Sources close to Namitha say that she is very keen to make a lasting impact with her role(s) in her upcoming film Pottu directed by V.C. Vadivutaiyan. She plays an ‘Agori’, a man-eating tribe. Yes, the actress gets to play dual roles in the film for the first time in her career.
She plays a witch who performs ‘pooja’ at crematoriums and attempts to scare off evil spirit. The make-up she has to put on for her character in the film takes at least 3-4 hours. Another role would feature as a typical modern girl donning sexy, glam-filled costumes to please her still-loyal fans.
Recently, a sequence was shot at Kolli Hills, which is situated at 2,000 feet above the ground-level. The spot where the shoot was held had no access for vans or cars to reach there as a result of which Namitha had to walk down 4 kms everyday to shoot this particular sequence on hilly terrain.
Isn’t that what you call as ‘commitment’ of the highest order?
