Comedy films have wider appeal: Vasundhara
Southern actress Vasundhara Kashyap, who is awaiting the release of her upcoming Tamil romantic-comedy "Sonna Puriyadhu", enjoys doing fun films.
"Let's admit it, sex and comedy sells in this industry. All my roles have been physically demanding, so I enjoyed working in 'Sonna Puriyadhu' because it was quite different from the roles I've done before and comedy films have a wider appeal," Vasundhara told IANS.
Seen as a TV show presenter in the film, ironically, she doesn't have any comic sequence in it.
"I play a homely girl in the film and don't get to crack jokes or act funny, yet there is a lot of scope for comedy in the film," said the actress, known for her performances in Tamil films "Peranmai" and "Poraali".
Directed by debutant Krishnan Jayaraj, "Sonna Puriyadhu" was majorily shot in Chennai and Gobichettipalayam, while the songs were canned in Bangkok.
The film that went on floors in August is likely to hit theatres in December.
The film revolves around a young man, played by Shiva, who is against marriage, but his friends want him to try it.
Vasundhara praises her co-star Shiva for his comic timing in the movie and said: "Shiva makes the most difficult scenes look simple with his impeccable timing for comedy."
