After a fruitful debut in Megha, heroine Srushti Dange is happy with the films that have come her way. “Megha gave me a lot of recognition, with a meaty role,” says the Maharashtrian actor in a chat with CE. “Now, after Ennakul Oruvan and Darling, which released recently, I’m shooting for three more films. It’s been a great entry in Kollywood for me.”
Currently shooting for Achhamindri, opposite Vijay Vasanth, she’s thrilled about doing some action scenes. “We have been shooting some chase scenes in Binny Mills for the past few days. The hero is supposed to rescue me from the baddies. I asked director Rajgopal if I could also kick some of the villains in the process and he said ok. So I got to do a bit of the action myself! But I’m covered with bruises with all the running and falling!” she says with a laugh.
Her co-star Vijay Vasanth, however, has been supportive. “It’s his home production, so he’s very concerned about my comfort. However, he also gets a good laugh at my expense. It’s a good vibe on the sets, and the shoot doesn’t feel like work at all,” she adds. She plays a middle class girl in this thriller which also has a message about education.
In Navarasa Thilagam, she’s paired with Ma Ka Pa Anandh, playing a medical student. The laughs never seem to stop on the sets of this family entertainer and rom-com directed by Kamraan. “Anandh has us in splits with his witticisms. He has an amazing comic timing and all I have to do is react to him in the shot.” Her other co-star is music director Siddharth Vipin who also shares a good camaraderie with her. “It’s been a good journey so far, “ says Srushti. “In Ennakul Oruvan, I had Siddharth as a co-star and I learnt a lot from him. His vast understanding of cinema and total dedication and his perfect synch with the director were all amazing to watch. In seconds, he would grasp what the director wanted,” she exclaims.
In Susindran’s production Vil Ambu, she plays Harish Kalyan’s college love interest. Chandini, Sree and Samskruthi make up the cast. “I want each role of mine to be different and thankfully that’s what I’m getting so far,” she signs off.
