Sri Divya, who is teaming up with Karthi in Kaashmora says that she was not intimidated by the presence of biggie Nayanthara in the movie, which is probably the biggest in her career till date. Addressing the rumours on her remuneration package and her modern avatar in Kaashmora, she talks to us. “When director Gokul narrated the script to me, I knew about Nayanthara’s presence in the film. I do not get intimidated by these things. I am more concerned about how important my character is.” she begins.
Heaping praises on Nayan, she says, “We don’t have many scenes together though… we shot together for just one day. She is beautiful, and is very friendly.”
Usually seen as the girl-next-door, Sri Divya takes on a modern avatar in this film — “I play the character of Yamini, who wears stylish western costumes. I simply loved the role! Nayan appears in the historical segment and the story is in such a way that I appear in the first half and she in the second part.”
She also reveals that there are no romantic scenes with Karthi in the film. However, she does talk of the actor being very down-to-earth and helpful, “It was very easy working with Karthi sir. Yet another thing, which made me comfortable, was that he was conversing in Telugu with me.”
When we tell her that all Karthi’s heroines like Anushka, Tamannah, Hansika, Kajal and Nayan invariably work with his brother Suriya, Sri Divya was all smiles. “I also want to act with Suriya sir and I hope my wish would come true soon!”
When talks veer towards the fact that she demands high remuneration, she quips, “Not at all! It’s only rumours spread by miscreants. I only ask for what I deserve.”
