Aishwarya Rajesh, who is perked up these days after bagging a Bollywood film, is equally thrilled about her first horror-comedy Hello Naan Pei Pesugiren in Tamil. Ace filmmaker-actor Sundar C turns producer for the first time with this movie. Aishwarya says that she was roped in for the project, because she is well-versed in Tamil.
“Thanks to director Bhaskar who said he was particular that he needed a Tamil-speaking girl. But honestly, Tamil girls are getting fewer opportunities to work in Kollywood. It is really sad,” Aishwarya tells DC. While she plays the sister of VTV Ganesh, Vaibhav essays her pair and the lead protagonist. The Kakka Muttai actress has also attempted a high-energy kuthu number in Hello...
“You would have hardly seen me dancing on screen in my previous flicks. To compensate for that, Bhaskar gave me a high-octane kuthu song Silaaiki Dumma where I have to dance in front of a dead body at a funeral possession! I have seen male artistes do such numbers. Since I am a dancer and practice dance every day, I didn’t find it difficult.” Vaibhav plays a pickpocket in the film. He says, “I enjoyed every bit of the shooting.
It was a fun filled experience. Though Bhaskar is a debutante filmmaker, he would never leave the artiste until he gets what he conceived. There’s a line Ayyo Kavitha in the movie. I took 30 takes for that one liner! Every time he said ‘one more’, he wanted me to lay more stress while saying ‘Ayyyyyyyyyo’, instead of merely ‘ayyo’.” Siddharth Vipin is the music composer.
