Shweta Gai, a popular name in the modelling world, is all set to venture into the film industry. The svelte model will be debuting in the role of a reporter/anchor in a dark comedy crime thriller, titled Thappu Thanda, directed by Srikantan.
Acting isn’t new to Shweta as she has been part of Anirudh’s single Avalukenna and director Vijay’s Idhu Enna Maayam. “Stepping into films was not an option at all. My ancestors were rooted to art, so acting just happened by chance,” she starts her conversation.
About Thappu Thanda, she says, “I can’t reveal any details about my character now. All I can say is that my character will be a link to the story. Thappu Thanda, which was mostly shot in Chennai, is now in the last stage of post-production.”
The actress has been a part of Nasser’s Pattanathil Bootham drama troupe and she feels blessed to have been mentored by Nasser and Jayakumar.
When asked about her future plans, Shweta explains, “I have a bunch of offers, but am waiting to see the reception of Thappu Thanda. I want to see how audiences understand me on screen. Only then, I will take up more films,” she concludes....
