The actor continued to feature in hit films like Ayan, Paiyaa, Siruthai, 100% Love and the blockbuster franchise Baahubali but at the risk of being stereotyped as the bubbly girl-next-door. But the whole idea is to go to another Friday. At her peak, the 29-year-old actor turned towards Bollywood with films like Himmatwala, Entertainment and Humshakals. I feel there’s so much more to do.”


Directed by Chakri Toleti, Khamoshi also features Prabhu Dheva and is scheduled to be released on Friday. But they were not good films. Thereafter, I only tried to do films which were exciting to me. I was a sorted and mature individual at that age. “It gives me a big reality check that our lives are very much Friday-to-Friday, everything changes with it. That’s more important for me than doing so-called heroine-centric films,” she adds. I would refuse to take prompting on the sets and insisted I learn the language.”
Navigating an industry almost alien to her made Tamannaah realise the uncertainty of the business. Some of my memorable films are those, where I had song and dance but also a very strong part to play. “I don’t know if I’ll be able to learn two new languages today but when I was 15, I was keen on learning Tamil and Telugu. “If you have a stronger part in a commercial film, it has a wider reach. “I grew up really fast. “I have had meaty roles even in the so-called male-centric films, where a girl is supposed to come, run around the trees and go away. I’ve realised stardom is beyond you, it isn’t something you can control. Baahubali was a war film and to get so much space in a film like that was huge. I had a strong will to be an actor.

Being driven as a teenager, Tamannaah learned Tamil and Telugu. I didn’t try to do a Hindi film just because I wanted to do one.”
The actor says now her endeavour is to challenge herself with projects and characters she has not done before, such as her latest, Hindi thriller Khamoshi, in which she plays a deaf and mute girl. “I set out to become an actor, ended up being a heroine. Now, I am exposed to cinema from all around the world and have been an actor for these many years. With the kind of extremely loyal fans I have from the south, I feel lucky,” she told PTI. She achieved success two years later, with Happy Days and Kalloori. They didn’t do well for legit reasons. Advertising

Born and raised in Mumbai, the actor made her debut with the 2005 Telugu film Sri, followed by her Tamil film Kedi. Earlier, I had a certain view of cinema to what I was exposed to. 0
