Kasthuri wants to be a part of Thamizh Padam, Indian sequels
Kasthuri, who returned to Tamil cinema with Simbu’s Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan, is doing a cameo in SAC's Traffic Ramaswamy biopic. The actor met SA Chandrasekar at an event last month, and he had asked her if she could do a dance number in his film. "I told him that I was looking to do something else. Then, he wrote some portions for me, which we shot in a day," she tells us.
So, is she not cool with doing item numbers anymore? "I don't think I should do the same thing in every film. That said, I am extremely disappointed with the double standards and misogyny this society has. Should I be a god to play a god? Just because I have a glamorous image on screen, why should I be judged? That's my work."
Is she a part of Thamizh Padam 2.0? "I certainly hope so, but I haven't been approached by Amudhan yet. More than that, I am looking forward to seeing myself in Indian 2," she smiles.
Kasthuri has also been signed to play a cop in an untitled project. "I play a good cop, but unfortunately, my character gets killed. Any film I die in becomes a blockbuster though. I am the Sean Bean of Tamil cinema," she laughs.
The actor is also busy translating the work of 2015 Sahitya Akademi winner A Madhavan into English.
