Iniya, who is playing the lead role in Vaagai Sooda Vaa opposite Vimal was crowned Miss Trivandrum a few years ago. She followed it up with Malayalam films like Dalamarmarangal, Saira and Umma.
Says the young actress, 'When I was doing Yuddham Sei, director Sarkunam (of Kalavani fame) signed me to do the lead with Vimal in Vaagai Sooda Vaa. I immediately signed the movie for it was a great role.’
Throwing more light on the project, she says, ‘In this period film, I am playing a character called Madhi. She is an ordinary girl, however with extraordinary guts and determination. My thanks to Sarkunam and Vimal for their co-operation.’
While the film is in its final post-production stage, Iniya, who has penchant for both western and Indian dance styles, has already started work with Arulnidhi in Mounaguru. 'I play a medical student in this film,' says Iniya.
