After a two-year break from the silver screen, Sonia Agarwal is ready to act in the small screen for Kushboo’s serial Naanal. Sonia was last seen in the film 'Thirutu Payalae.'
“Kushboo called me and I went. But didn’t know it was an offer for a serial. She narrated two scripts to me and I chose this as I felt this one is better. I play a widow in it,” says the actress.
Why did she chose to act in serials, taking a road travelled by all married actresses? “The only person concerned was my husband and I asked him he was quite fine. I am comfortable working in serials,” she explains.
Asked whether she would do any other serials? “One at a time. As I am married into a Tamil family, I am into their culture and I have observed a lot of that which will come in handy for me to play my role,” adds Sonia, whose favourite movie is 7/G Rainbow Colony.
“I always wanted to play a negative role in a filmnot like a vamp but like someone who is forced into the negative things due to circumstances. If I get a good script I will do it,” adds Sonia. For her, acting in both films and serials are the same.
“The serial is on air from December 15, on our second wedding anniversary. I am keeping my fingers crossed for the response for the serial.
I’ve already begun getting calls and messages that the promos are nice,” says the actress.
Produced by Avni Tele Media, the cast includes Sri, Neepa, ARS, Revathy Shankaran, Vichu and Bhanumathy. Like a 'Naanal' (creeper) is Radhika (Sonia). Actor Robert Rajasekar of Chinna 'Poovae Mella Pesu', 'Manasukkul Mathapoo' is directing the mega serial for the first time.
Story is by Kushboo, lyrics penned by Thabu Shankar and music by Dhina.
The mega serial will be on air from December 15 on Kalaignar TV.
