January 21, 2011 : Kannada actress Nidhi Subbaiah has become very choosy about signing films these days. The 26-year old actress says that people takes notice of characters of substance rather than typical commercial heroines, so she is trying that formula.
Nidhi says that she loves to look hot on-screen as it helps in boosting a heroine's career. But her roles in most of her projects demand to wear least make-up. She has just returned from Thailand after completing shooting for her upcoming Sandalwood film Krishnan Marriage Story. Informing about this, Nidhi says that she was there for eight days and shot a dream song sequence as well as a romantic song sequence. She adds that the weather was cool and she enjoyed shooting there.
However, the actress has one complaint against the Kannada film industry, which does not pay well to its heroines. Nidhi says that she is not at all satisfied with the payments offered in Sandalwood. She says that the industry has fame but no money as the heroines get only 30pc of the amount a hero is paid. According to her, this is one of the reasons that local heroines want to try their luck in other South film industries. However, the actress is keeping hope that the producers will look into the matter. She is hoping that such a huge difference between the hero and heroine's payment will be considered very soon.
