Trisha, who is in her mid-thirties, continues to get film offers to play lead roles and prominent roles in films, baffling film critics and film pundits.
After essaying a minor role in Prashanth-Simran starrer Jodi in 1999, Trisha debuted as heroine in 2002 with Ameer’s Mounam Pesiyadhe opposite Suriya. It has been 14 long years since her debut and she continues to get film offers in an era where a heroine’s shelf-life doesn’t last more than 7-8 years.
She now awaits the theatrical release of her Kodi, which is surprisingly her first film opposite the national award-winning actor Dhanush, during Deepavali next week. Her career was going steady but the failure of the Tamil and Telugu versions of Nayaki upset her career somehow from which she has recovered soon enough.
She plays Arvind Swamy’s heroine in Sathuranga Vettai 2, plays a prominent role in the sequel to Saamy and has also taken up the lead role in the Tamil remake of the super-hit Hindi film NH 10 which starred Anushka Sharma in the lead and released last year. She also has Madesh’s Mohini and two other films titled as Garjanai and Bhogi and is in talks to play the heroine in the Tamil remake of Bollywood’s Queen.
Let’s salute her never-say-die spirit!
