Rarely does southern actress Hansika Motwani need a second take to perform a scene, says director Hari Gopalakrishnan who included her in the forthcoming Tamil action-drama "Singam 2".
Hansika is one of the additions to the cast of "Singam 2", a sequel to "Singham".
"I included her in the sequel to play an important role. I haven't worked with her before but have seen her performance in so many films. She is a one-take artist and rarely do you need spend few more takes to complete a scene with her," Hari told IANS.
"If you show her exactly what you want, she will do it in no time. She brings in so much of energy to the team and that keeps us all going," he added.
She joined 30 other artists in the sequel.
"Audiences are familiar with all the actors who appeared in the prequel, but I was hesitant to add a few more to the sequel. But, I don't regret it now because everybody has done a brilliant job, especially Hansika," he said.
"I was more worried if the audiences won't connect with her character, but I'm confident now that they will enjoy her performance," Hari added.
The film also features Suriya Sivakumar, Anushka Shetty, Nassar, Vijayakumar, Santhanam, Vivek ad Anjali.
He clarifies there may be a lot of characters, but each one has a purpose.
"All those who watched 'Singham' will know that I chose every character, big or small, for a reason. When people watch 'Singam 2', they will know why I included extra characters," he said.
Produced by Prince Pictures, "Singam 2" has music by Devi Sri Prasad and is slated to release in June.
