For someone who has been in the showbiz for the past 13 years, Trisha admits not trying her hand at genre ‘horror’ surprising. “I have always wanted to be part of horror films, and finally ‘Kalavathi’ (Aranmanai 2 in Tamil) Telugu) came my way.
Horror films excite me. I cannot reveal my role but I hope it’ll take everyone by surprise. Moreover, the film has been awarded ‘U’ certificate, so I believe audiences of all ilk can enjoy it,” Trisha insists.
The dusky beauty avers that she has become choosy of late and is concentrating on doing ‘mature roles’. “I’m at a phase I where I have the to liberty to pick and choose films. I have been reading several scripts but I am picking ones that add or bring a change to the film. It’s a conscious effort and I’m enjoying it.”
The Chennai actress has showed great character to cope with the breakup with entrepreneur Varun Manian last year. What’s more, she has been on a signing spree and ensured that her personal life did not have a bearing on her filmi career. “I ensured that my personal life did not affect me.
Right from my childhood, I’ve come across as a girl who has a very strong persona. I wanted to come out of that block (personal setback) quickly, and so I have put everything behind and started to focus on my projects,” she exclaims, adding, “Life has to go on and work takes precedence for me.
I felt the best way to get past the personal tragedy and divert your attention was to keep working. Thankfully, it paid off.” But is the breakup still lingering in her mind? “I don't want to dwell on the past and right now, I’m totally occupied with films. I’m extremely happy not thinking about anything other than work,” she declares.
Trisha is quick to point out that her mother Uma has been her support system and was instrumental in shaping up her personality. “I draw strength from her and what I am today is all because of her. I owe everything to her. She’s been silently supporting me and has been a huge source of inspiration.
She doesn’t interfere too much in my work, yet supports me in all my endeavors. Whatever I do and whenever I want to lean on her, she’s there for me. Apart from the mother-daughter bonding, we share a comfort zone like friends and that makes our bond even stronger,” she signs off with a sense of pride.
