Asin is not my competitor
Tamil actress Trisha is entering Bollywood
Popular Tamil actress Trisha (pictured above) is all set to make her Bollywood debut opposite Akshay Kumar, but insists that her foray into Hindi films shouldn't be seen as competing with Asin.
"I neither wanted frantically to do a Hindi film nor do I treat Asin as my competitor. All I'm concerned about is the films I'm starring in; I hardly have the time to check and monitor others' career," said Trisha.
"Some people are spreading rumours that my Hindi film effort is to keep Asin in check. They want to portray me as her competitor. The fact of the matter is that Akshay was very impressed by my performance in 'Abhiyum Naanum' and wanted to cast me in the film 'Kattha Meetha', which would be his home production," she added.
"I'm extremely happy that Priyadarshan, who introduced me in Tamil films with 'Lesa Lesa' some years ago, would be doing the same in Hindi films," Trisha said.
Meanwhile, Asin, Genelia D'Souza, Shriya Saran and Trisha, yet another south Indian actress is entering the Hindu film world albeit in an indirect way. Priyamani would be essaying a role in the Hindi version of Mani Ratnam's Tamil film "Ravanan".
She would be portraying the same role in the Hindi version and the National Award-winning actress is mighty excited about the significance of her character in the film.
The actress, who has worked in Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu films, won the National Award for best actress for her performance in Tamil film "Paruthiveeran".
