Actress Arthana Binu, who made her debut in Tamil with Samuthrakani’s Thondan. She talks about playing the female lead in GV Prakash’s Semma releasing on May 25 and her other upcoming projects with Karthi and Vikranth.
After a successful debut in Kollywood with Samuthirakani’s Thondan last year, Arthana says that she is excited to play the female lead in her second Tamil film Semma, opposite GV Prakash. “I’m overwhelmed on landing this opportunity. I was impressed with Vallikanth’s narration and the content written by Pandiraj sir is too good and I immediately agreed to do
the film,” begins Arthana.
Divulging more about her character, she says, “I play a girl-next- door character called Magizhini, who is your typical Tamil girl from the southern districts. The character is something that everyone of us would have come across in our lives at some point in time. Vallikanth helped me in adapting to this role and I am looking forward as to how the audience will receive it.” Arthana also says that sharing screen space with GVP was a fangirl moment for her.
“I have watched GV Prakash’s films and I like them. However, I am a huge fan of his songs, especially his background score. On the sets of Semma, we went on to become good friends.” adds the actress. Post Semma, the actress will be seen playing Karthi’s pair in Kadaikutty Singam.
“I am not supposed to divulge anything about Kadaikutty Singam now. But then it’s again a rustic role and I have a lot to talk about it close to the film’s release. Apart from that I play the female lead in the sequel to Vennila Kabaddi Kuzhu in which I’m paired with Vikranth.
Be it GV, Karthi or Vikranth, I ensure that I keep them in their comfort zone and spread positive vibes on the sets,” she tells us. Prod her about playing rustic roles in back-to- back films, she says, “Born and raised in Thiruvananthapuram, I always wanted to dress up in half sarees like the countryside girls. I’m glad that these films gave me a sneak-peek into lives beyond the hustle and bustle of the city life. In future, I will be taking up roles that are more modern,” she signs off.
