Suja Varunee, who resolved not to do anymore item numbers, had to wait patiently for six years to get a break. It’s finally paid off now! After Sasikumar’s Kidaari, where she essayed a vamp on a revenge spree, the actress has been taken seriously and today, her kitty is filled with different roles in Tamil and Malayalam — including that of a gangster in Sathru. “I know it was a tough period. Though many offers poured in for item songs, I never went back on my decision and turned them all down. In a way, it helped me reinvent myself,” Suja starts her conversation.

She says that she is not against acting even in a single scene if it creates an impact in the film. “For me, it is the character I play that is more important. Even if it is a small role, I don’t mind doing it, provided it is powerful. Money and other things comes later.” Having danced for item numbers, what’s her take on ‘skin show’ now? — “I am in for doing glam roles provided the character and the story demand it. At the same time, I am not for mere skin show for the heck of it; even if they offer a huge sum.”

 

After Kidaari, Suja’s fortune has changed for good. “I have an important role in Arulnithi’s Iravukku Aayiram Kangal and in Kathir’s Sathru, I am portraying a gangster, who does not speak much but shows her anger through expressions. It is an interesting subject.” Samuthirakani also has roped in Suja for his film — Aan Devathai, that has an intriguing story. “In the Malayalam film Achayans, I have been given the role of a Tamil speaking police officer, Panchami, and it is a challenging one,” she signs off.
