It has been four years since Arrambam released and Akshara Gowda is still hailed as the ‘Stylish Thamizhachi’ in K’town. The actress went to star in Bogan as a cop and brought in her A-game in it. Now, she is all set to widen her horizons to Sandalwood and Tollywood.
Akshara feels that she is finding it difficult to break her image in the Tamil industry. “Directors approach me only if they have glamorous and sexy roles. I am being typecast and I find it difficult to understand why people think that I make the cut only for such roles. It’s been close to a year since I signed any Tamil films as I didn’t find anything different. I’m in no hurry to do films and want to choose the best. For starters, I can do romantic flicks and pull of Indian looks as well. I hope directors see that side and cast me in their films,” she begins her conversation.
The actress is doing her second project in Kannada, which will be helmed by lyricist-turned-director Ghouse Peer. “In my debut Kannada movie Premadalli, I played the role of a rich brat. It is a simple love story. I play a banker in my second flick and will be seen in a de-glam look wearing cotton salwar-kameez and sarees. These are the films that I want to be part of. I owe a lot to Tamil film industry, but I wish directors offer me diverse roles that excite me,” she quips.
The official announcement about her Telugu entry is also expected soon.
