Tamannah on Adhik Ravichandran, STR and Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan (AAA)
Actress Tamannah Bhatia has a big fan following and the actress makes it a point to let her fans know what to expect next. The actress is shooting in Chennai for her next Tamil film Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan (AAA). 27 year old Tamannah is playing the role of a painter in the film which is directed by 27-year-old Adhik Ravichandran, co-starring Southern star Silambarasan or STR as he is popularly known.
In a chat, Tamannaah reveals why she’s enjoying teaming up with STR and the young and talented one-film-old director Adhik, who is of the same age as she is.
Adhik has earlier directed Trisha Illana Nayanthara, an adult comedy starring GV Prakash. In AAA, he got STR to do three roles which raised the curiosity level of fans audience. One is of an old man called Ashwin Thatha. Tamannaah is playing an artist and teams up with the character who is a grandfather. She says, “As everyone knows, he has three different looks. We are right now shooting with Ashwin thatha. STR is very easy going and is extremely fast when he comes to sets. He is carrying the thatha ( grandfather) look very effortlessly , despite being so young. Age is not something one can just create with makeup alone. STR’s body language also conveys his age. He is a brilliant actor.”
There is a comfort level and Tamannaah feels at ease working with him. “There was no need to break the ice because we both were super comfy since we started shoot,” she says.
She seems to be thrilled about working with Adhik. “I have never worked with a director my age. So I was super excited to work with Adhik. Despite his youth, he is mature and clear and very ‘new age’ in his thinking. I feel he keeps everything real. Like, there’s no overdoing of anything , just because it’s commercial cinema. He is ‘new age’ in every way, including the style of working , as well as in his ideas.”
She is definitely impressed by Adhik. “His execution is really quick. So, we shoot with a two camera setup which is not common. From scenes to songs, everything is shot like that. I think it’s great for an actor because you don’t need to work like crazy to try to recreate what you have done in a certain take. The 2 camera set up also means you can concentrate on acting and need not focus on cameras angles and other technical details. So I’m really enjoying the shoot!” Tamannaah is currently shooting a song, “This schedule is a song shoot. It’s the Trend song which was just released recently. Satish is the choreographer. We are right now shooting with STR as the old man, Ashwin Thatha.”
