Trisha Krishnan the sexy siren from the south is all set to make her debut in Bollywood opposite none other than Akshay Kumar in Priyadarshan’s forthcoming venture Khatta Meeta.
Trisha initially began her career in the South with Priyadarshan’s Lesa Lesa. This will be her second film with Priyadarshan. “Yes I was launched by Priyadarshan seven and half years ago. I am glad that he remembered me when he was doing this film. My debut venture is with Akshay Kumar, what more could I ask for. Moreover, it is Akshay’s home production”, Trisha says.
Trisha stared her career as a model and was also chosen for the Miss India Pageant in 2001. With 35 films in the South to her credit Trisha is now looking forward to career in Bollywood. “Bollywood has always been open to new people. Right from Sridevi to Asin and Genelia they have all made it to Bollywood. I hope I can set a mark here too”, she says.
This will be her first attempt at comedy. “Yes, I’ve done comedy in Telugu films but not attempted in Tamil cinema. In Khatta Meeta too my character does not have a comic track, it’s more serious. All the comedy is handled by Akshay Kumar. I can’t reveal much about the film at this point but it’s the story of a collector and a road contractor”, she reveals.
Incidentally, Trisha’s voice is the film will be dubbed. “Yes, I can read and write Hindi. Reading the script was not difficult but I am not good with the spoken language. And since my character needs to be good in Hindi Priyan sir decided to have it dubbed. Meanwhile I am polishing off the language with some tutors”, informs Trisha.
Trisha says she is looking forward to the release of the movie. “I am nervous as well as excited but am banking on it. In the meantime, I am making most of my time shopping without being conscious of the fact that I am a star in Mumbai”, she concludes.
