CHENNAI: Actress Aishwarya Rajesh, most popular for her work in last year's National Award winning and critically acclaimed film "Kaaka Muttai", is looking forward to a busy year as she has nine Tamil films, which are at different stages of production.

"While four of my films 'Idam Porul Yaeval', 'Kutrame Thandanai', 'Hello Naan Pei Pesuren', 'Aarathu Sinam' and 'Deepavali Thuppakki' are getting ready for release, the rest are at different stages of production. It's going to be a busy year for me," Aishwarya told IANS.

Having recently completed shooting for horror film "Mo", she will soon join the sets of filmmaker Seenu Ramaswamy's "Dharmadurai" with Vijay Sethupathi.

"This is the second time I'll be working with Vijay and director Seenu sir. I play one of the leads. It's a role sans make-up and I'm really excited about this project. I play a girl from Theni, and I can't wait to join the sets," she said.

Aishwarya is also excited about "Hello Naan Pei Pesuren". She has clarified that she doesn't play the ghost, but has a very interesting character.

"It's the script that appealed to me the most. It's a role similar to what Simran did in 'Pithamagan'," she said.

A trained dancer, Aishwarya says she will showcase her dancing prowess in a special 'kuthu' song in the film.

"It's an exciting song featuring different styles of kuthu (dance). All those who've watched the rushes of the song couldn't believe that I could pull off anything like that," she said.

Up next are "Aarathu Sinam" and "Manithan".

"In 'Aarathu Sinam', I play a wife and mother. It's a very homely character; quite contrary to what I've done so far. In 'Manithan', I essay a very important role," said Aishwarya, who will soon start working on a yet-untitled Tamil project that will be entirely shot in Singapore. The film features veteran actor Nasser's son Luthfudeen Baasha in the lead.

For Aishwarya, life after the highly successful "Kaaka Muttai" has been very rewarding.

"Since I played a mother of two slum kids in the film, I feared I might end up getting only such roles. But I'm glad I'm getting to do a variety of characters," she signed off.
