She’s making her Tamil debut with Vendhar Movies’ Thillu Mullu, directed by Badri. But actor Isha Talwar is no newcomer to the South. She made her film debut in the Malayalam hit Thattathin Marayathu last year and landed another hit with her Telugu debut film, Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde in 2013. Now, with Thillu Mullu, Isha is hopeful of completing her winning streak with a hat-trick of sorts.

Isha started off as a child actor in Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai in 2000 and did a music video with Hrithik Roshan for the  Just Dance TV show.  Being the daughter of  Vinod Talwar, a Bollywood producer and director,  why did she choose the South to start her acting career?

“Many people ask me that. But I didn’t want to keep waiting for the right role in Bollywood. When I got the offer for Thattathin Marayathu, I loved the script and decided  it was the right break for me. I go with my gut feelings. And considering what a super hit it was, I was proved right! The same happened with my Telugu debut opposite Nithin. And after seeing my Malayalam debut, Badri  signed me up for Thillu Mullu!” Isha, a trained dancer, says with a  laugh.

She’s more than thrilled to be working in the remake of a Rajini film. “He is a legend! It’s my dream to see Thillu Mullu with Rajini sir and  our team,” she gushes. She  is just back from Geneva where the film had an audio launch. “I met the cast and crew of the three other films at the same event at Victoria Hall. We all bonded so well after the party and I came to know so many Kollywood actors and technicians. How many newcomers get such an opportunity!” exclaims Isha.

She is all praise for co -star Shiva. “He is a stress buster and keeps the shooting area free of all tension with his wacky one-liners! It’s  nice to be around people who spread such joy,” she says. Isha is all set for a long innings in Kollywood. She’s been watching several Tamil movies like Pizza, Polladhavan and 3 in recent times. “I’m doing another Malayalam film called I love Me. Language is no barrier and I want to do more Tamil films next. I have a long way to go, but I’m happy the journey has begun well! ” she concludes.
