Chennai: Actress Anandhi, who will next be seen in forthcoming Tamil romantic-drama "Kayala", says she has no fear of taking up a village-based role because she gives prime importance to the script and performance.
In "Kayala", which is set against the backdrop of the 2004 tsunami, Anandhi plays a village girl. In her next yet-untitled film with director A. Sargunam, she plays a similar role.
"If my directors think I'm more suitable for village-based roles, I'm fine with it. But the film should have interesting script and ample scope for performance. Otherwise, I don't usually sign a film," Anandhi told reporters.
"Both 'Kayal' and Sargunam sir's films have given me author-backed roles. That's why I didn't mind taking them up even though they were village-based," she said.
Currently busy shooting for Sargunam's film, Anandhi is really looking forward to "Kayal".
"It will be a landmark film not just for me but also for the industry. We worked extremely hard to complete it," she added.
Directed by Prabhu Solomon, "Kayal" is scheduled for release Dec 26 on the occasion that marks the 10 years of devastating Indian Ocean tsunami.
