A Day with Srividya- The Neelambari of Smallscreen
For those who are not able to read in Tamil...here a short translation of her interview in Tamil.
The name of the serial is only Thendral...but Srividya's character is like Sooravali-Puyal. If Srividya enters the screen uruttufying her biggg eyes...the TRP goes up. But in real life Srividya is a very innocent girl.
She shoots twelve days a month for her serials, eight days in her college (doing MBA in Anna University)...few days compering for a promoting company...and the rest of the days she spends with her family, most of the time going to temples with her family.
She started her acting career with "Unnidathil Ennai Koduthen" at the age of eight. She never did think of acting, but ended up being a popular serial artist. Usually she portrays innocent characters, even in Thendral at the beginning her role was the one of a homely innocent girl, but her villi charcter with her biggg eyes clicked well with the audience.
Coming to her psycho character...she says...an old woman told her not to torture the poor and innocent Thulasi. Even at shopping malls...she gets yelled for her role as psycho in Thendral.
The 19 years old Srividya is a trained Carnatic singer, knows self-driving, loves to cook and is a fan of Sidney Sheldon.
Thanks Tanu for the info
