Andrea has untapped potential: Director Ram
Chennai: Tamil director Ramsubramaniam believes southern actress Andrea Jeremiah, who will sport three different looks in his next untitled film, has a lot of untapped potential.
"She (Andrea) is one of the finest actresses I have come across. But seldom do we see her in a role that does justice to her potential. I decided to make the best use of her potential and that`s why I chose her for my film," Ram told reporters.
Refusing to divulge details about the looks, he said: "I want her looks to be kept a secret until we reveal it. But, what I can assure you is that it will definitely bring out the best in her as an actress."
Andrea, who is also a popular southern singer, was last seen in Kamal Haasan`s controversial multi-lingual thriller `Vishwaroopam`. She played one of the teammates of Haasan, who played a secret spy in the film.
In Telugu cinema, she was recently seen opposite actor Sunil Varma in `Tadakha`, which is the Telugu remake of `Vettai`.
Andrea made her acting debut in Tamil romantic-drama `Kandha Naal Mudhal` in 2005. In the same year, she debuted as a singer with the song "Kannum Kannum Nokia" from Tamil thriller `Anniyan`.
What kind of a film is this?
"It`s a love story akin to the mood of the current generation. This time I have decided to deal with a lighter subject than my previous films. I`m currently zeroing in on the male lead and the rest of the cast. We will begin shooting soon," he added.
Known for his path-breaking Tamil directorial debut `Kattradhu Tamizh`, Ram is currently busy wrapping up his second Tamil film `Thanga Meengal`.
