Actress Sri Divya is of the opinion that characters set in rural backdrop give an actress more scope to perform.
Sri Divya, who has already had two releases this year in Pencil (opposite G.V. Prakash Kumar) and Marudhu (opposite Vishal), is now awaiting her third release of the year in Suseenthiran’s Maaveran Kittu in which she pairs up opposite Vishnu Vishal for the second time after Jeeva (2014), which was also directed by Suseenthiran.
Speaking about her career, the 29-year old Sri Divya said “Jeeva was in important film for me though it occurred very early in my career. When Suseenthiran invited me to join the cast of Maaveeran Kittu, I only knew that mine would be a rural character. I signed along dotted lines without even listening to the script. As it’s a period-type film, I had plenty of scope to perform. I loved the character ‘Gomathi’ I played in it.
“I have done more rural-based characters but don’t regret it. In fact, when an actress performs such kind of roles, she is able to get into the skin of those characters. As the backdrop of the script is real, one can ‘live’ the character. I like such a setting in my films. It doesn’t mean that I’m only game for such characters. In my upcoming film Kaashmora, I have played a typical modern girl’s role,” concludes Sri Divya.
