Actress Sakshi Agarwal will soon be playing a character inspired from Ramya Krishnan’s Neelambari character from Rajinikanth-starrer Padayappa in her new film Jaikira Kuthirai. Sakshi, who is generally played bubbly and chirpy characters, will be seen in a much bolder avatar in the film.
“I play a US-returned character that’s very similar to Neelambari. Contrary to my regular sweet and bubbly avatar, audiences will see me in a very bold and strong role, and it required me to be myself but even bolder,” said Sakshi.
Unlike Neelambari, Sakshi’s character doesn’t have a negative shade.
“It’s very subjective to say that about a character because you really can’t define what’s negative. I play someone who gets what she wants. She’s very independent and her take on love is very different. It was fun playing this character,” she said.
Except for one song, the rest of the film has been completed.
Directed by Sakthi Chidambaram, Jaikira Kuthirai stars Jeevan in the lead.
