Unfazed by her mixed report card in T-town, Sada has been doing her share of Kollywood and Sandalwood films and is now even eyeing Bollywood. She confesses that while “commercial success of a film is important” she still treats each film as a “learning experience. Every project is close to my heart.”
Being a multi-lingual actress has reaped rich dividends for her especially since she tasted success with Anniyan and Unnale Unnale in Tamil and Monalisa in Kannada. “Now I am very excited about my new Tamil film with Madhavan, Avan Aval Athu, which is a gripping supernatural thriller. I am also super excited about my untitled Kannada film and Telugu film Aa Aaa Ee Eee (“a rib-tickler”)
Her seven-year stint in southern cinema has been enriching and has helped her shape into a complete actress.
After Aparachitudu, she’s playing the role of an orthodox Tamil-speaking Brahmin girl in her Bollywood debut. How does it feel? “Well, more than the role, it’s a great relief to dub your own lines,” says the actress, who relied on borrowed voices for her south films. Unlike her screen character who waits patiently for her flirtatious lover to return to her in her new B-town film, Sada firmly points out that if she had a boyfriend like that, in real life, “I’d have just dumped him,” she says. Telugufilmblog.com. There’s a reason behind her angst against polygamous men in real life. She says, “I think every man is a compulsive flirt. Some show off their flirtatious tendencies when they are young, others suppress it. But given a choice, they will all like to flirt with women.”
Does that mean, she hasn’t she come across a Mr Right yet? “The very idea of Mr Right is a myth. I don’t think any one fits that bill on this earth. Some men are unfaithful to their partners/spouses. In fact that’s why I haven’t got into a relationship with a man,” she says. Really? “Well, I’ve had my share of crushes but I am wary of committing myself,” she chips in. Her man should be “loyal, good-looking and sensitive — all rolled into one. May be it’s a tall order, but I’ll find him for sure,” she chuckles.
Sada’s Bollywood platter seems to have some variety: a laugh riot (Khalbilli) and a supernatural thriller (Click). “I was totally spooked when I shot for Click. Even now I can’t stay alone in dark rooms,” she confesses.
A typical home-bird, Sada is seldom spotted at parties or filmi bashes. “I like to do my work and go home. I am not interested in socialising after work,” she says emphatically.
