Two Tamil films in Mamta Mohandas’s six year long career as an actress seems to have made a few think the actress doesn’t prefer Tamil scripts and that she turns down K’town offers. An astonished Mamta opens up and says she was always game for Kollywood and Tamil scripts.
We all know the Prachi Desai story, and how this actress from Bollywood behaved towards Arun Vijay’s ‘Thadayara Thakka’. Prachi who initially gave a nod for the project, allocated dates for it, received an advance as well, cited quite silly reasons and walked out on the film.
The team then approached Mamta Mohandas of ‘Sivapathigaram’ and ‘Guru En Aalu’ fame who was only more than happy to grab the interesting offer.
It seems, the director had Mamta as a choice for the female lead while scripting the project but those close to him asked him not to bother approaching the heroine as she isn’t keen on Tamil scripts, and it was only after Prachi’s walkout, the director wanted to give his original choice a shot. Look’s like that has worked well for the team…
‘Thadayara Thakka’ does away from usual commercial entertainers that show how the hero and heroine met. In fact, in the very opening of the film, the lead pair is shown to be in love!
