"I am doing glamour role in Silandhi" Monica



MONICA INTERVIEW

After the release of the Azhagi, Monica was given the title of “Angel”. Though she appeared in a small role in the film, her beautiful appearance has rewarded her good name. Some of the fans of the actress have started Fans Club for her. Now, they are going to launch a website in her name. In an interview to the Southernblaze she talks to our reporter.


Q: After you have won the title of Angel through the film Azhagi why you have not seen quite a long time in films?

A: Though I have won the title Angel in that film, I did the younger role of Nanditha Das. Hence, after the film was released I was asked to do the role of second heroine. But before accepting those I offers, I was invited to act in Telugu films.

Q; Have you done the role of heroine in Telugu?

A: Yes. I acted in Sivarama Rajasri and E.V. Sathyanarayana films. Other than this I acted in other two films. I did glamour role. That has fetched me good name.

Q: The surprise thing is that you have acted with Vadivelu for Imsai Arasan?

A: As far this film is concerned; I did not see who all the other actors with me are. I accepted the role, because it is Director Shankar’s movie. As expected the film got me a good name and it was a successful film in India and in London. On seeing the film many started Fans Club for me. Now, they are going to make out website in my name, and recently I came to know that the work of the site is in full swing and will be launched in the near future.

Q: Even after these successes you could not appear as heroine?

A: I think I belong to the Tamil Nadu, that is the main reason. Second, it was due to some actresses who hail from Mumbai. There is a general expectation, that the heroine should not speak Tamil properly and that may also another reason why I have not received recognition.

Q: What is the reason for appearing in glamour role in Silandhi?

A: When I feel happiness that I have acted in Azhagi film. But at the same time I feel sorry for having acted as an angel in the film. Many advertisement companies asking me to appear in sarees as if angels. This type of role may not be required for the films that are
produced now. That is the one of the reasons I am not able to get chances in films. Though I have acted in glamour roles in Telugu, I have done most glamorus role in Silandhi. Appearing in glamorous role is not a bad one. It is a part and parcel of acting.

Q: You could have done roles in the family subjects as house wife like Sneha?

A: She is also appearing in glamour roles. Still she is acting in some Telugu films in glamour.

Q: How do you choose films for your acting?

A: I am not coming from rich family to choose my character. I am from the Middle Income Group family. I always choose the story part of it and my character in the story. I expect if I do a role it should fetch me good name. Money is secondary for me.

Q: Do you have any interest other than acting?

A: I have desire in music. I want to sing and do music direction. Hence, I am going to start to learn music.

Q: Are you acting in any other films?

I am acting in a Tamil film Varnam and in a Sinhala film. The shooting of the both the films are going on.
