Chennai, Oct 1 (): Yaan,the upcoming Tamil action thriller, a Ravi K Chandran directorial features Jiiva and Thualsi Nair in the leads.
Thulasi Nair,all of 16 years is the daughter of yesteryear actress Radha and the younger sister of Karthika Nair who played the female lead along with Jiiva in ‘Ko’.
The young and pretty actress who made her Tamil film debut in ‘Kadal’ opens up about her experience of working with Jiiva and shared what she felt working with the whole crew of Yaan.
Thulasi stands tall,literally. The ‘Yaan’ star has been all over and the unit goes over board to appreciate the young girl for her absolute professionalism.
Thulasi had plenty to share with and here are the few. ‘I grew up hearing plenty about my mother’s deeds as an actress and felt it was in my blood too. ‘Kadal’ happened and ‘Yaan’ started happening. I prefer to take up my career slowly and steadily rather dabbling in many projects and one such venture was Ravi.K.Chandran’s Yaan. It is not just coincidence that R S Infotainment headed by Elred Kumar and Jayaram were the producers of ‘Ko’ as well as ‘Yaan’. The pride of syncing lips for the songs of Harris Jayaraj will remain forever with me.
I play the role of Tamil girl living in Mumbai, being a Mumbai girl myself it was relatively easy for me to slip into that character. It is always a privilege to work with directors who are willing to portray me in different genre and I am confident that this will enhance my reputation as a versatile artist. I was totally pampered in the movie ‘Kadal’ and Yaan was no less to that. It was a thrilling experience to cross the schedule in Switzerland and Morocco. The chases and stunts were shot a midst bomb blasts.
For me,hero Jiiva was not a stranger in spite of being paired with him for the first time since my sister Karthika who had worked with Jiiva in Ko, had spoken so much about him. Over the shooting process we developed a clean professional relationship that had helped me a lot to sharpen the acting skills. I am confident that ‘Yaan’ will take me to a much bigger level’ the pretty actress summed it up.
Yaan releases in cinema screens tomorrow,October 2.
