"If I were here for money, I would have easily signed another couple of films. But I am passionate about what I do, and good projects matter the most ", she said.
Actresses tend to get stereotyped easily Actress Eden Kuriakose, who was last seen in Zhagaram, which hit the screens last week is quite excited about her upcoming projects. Her role as an archaeological student in Zhagaram too was well-received by the audience and critics alike. “Zhagaram is a film that deserves to be taken to the audience. A couple of years ago, the director of the film Krish approached me and elaborated on what the film would be all about. I immediately agreed. He also told me that it was a crowd-funding project. I liked the guts of the director and I realised his struggles as a filmmaker because I had gone through the same,” says Eden.
The actress also tells us that she has an interesting line-up in Tamil for the coming months. “I have three feature films and a web series. I play a cop in one of the films and another film has me in a negative shade,” adds the actress. Eden says that she doesn’t mind playing the waiting game.
“Having been around for five years, it is high time I chose characters which are not run-of-the mill and make it predictable for the audience. Actresses tend to get stereotyped easily and I don’t want that to happen to me. If I were here for money, I would have easily signed another couple of films. But I am passionate about what I do, and good projects matter the most,” she says with some authority. Elaborating about playing a cop, she says, “The film though doesn’t involve any high-risk stunt sequences, I had to do my homework to change my body language to play a cop. I even observed a few of them. Another film is titled Manjal Vaanam. It is a woman-centric film and revolves around an incident that happens on a highway,” she concludes.
