She is a popular face in Tollywood with films like Vedam, an anthology drama film, which garnered critical acclaim and bagged several awards in various festivals. Deeksha Seth later did the box office hit Mirapakaay. Soon, her impressive filmography was dotted by several notable flicks like Wanted, Rebel, Nippu, in Tamil Suseenthiran’s Rajapattai and the social-fantasy film Uu Kodathara? Ulikki Padathara?
Now, making inroads into Bollywood films with the successful flick Lekar Hum Deewana Dil, Deeksha is looking for substance, role in full-fledged action and pure romantic films.
In talks with makers, Deeksha, who has spent a considerable time in Chennai, says that she definitely wants to maintain her links with Kollywood. She says, “I have been visiting the city on and off, and I am in talks with a few filmmakers. However, I am waiting for something to materialise,” she says.
A film lover, she, however, is on a steady diet of Tamil films. “I watch a lot of Tamil films. Watching Kamal Haasan’s Mahanadhi was a very emotional experience, I wept a lot,” she says.
Deeksha says that professionalism in the Southern industry makes her feel at home and she’s keen on working with different filmmakers in the industry. “They treat me so well in Tollywood. I like the professionalism in the industry. I am looking forward to coming back,” says the actor, who is in Mumbai. And, if there is one actor she is keen on working with again, it would be Vikram. She says, “It was a great experience working with him in Rajapattai. I hope I get to do more projects with him in future.”
