Paruthiveeran actress Priyamani is currently busy with Sambo Siva Sambo, the Telugu remake of Tamil hit Naadodigal, an important film in her career. “The role I am playing has no glamour scenes. But nobody is talking about it,” she says.
Apart from Sambo Siva Sambo, Priyamani is acting in two other Telugu ventures and one Kannada film. “I am open to offers in Tamil too. But the character should be meaty,” she says.
But the actress seems to be clear about one thing — the dress code. Priyamani says she can’t say no when filmmakers ask her to wear skimpy costumes to add glamour to a particular song or scene. “One has to be professional when it comes to work. Acting is my career. I am pursuing it with passion. And I can’t refuse the professional demands of my director,” she opines.
“Moreover, there is nothing wrong in wearing a bikini or other skimpy attires, as many of my predecessors have set a trend in it. Most actresses ranging from Aishwarya Rai to Bipasha Basu have appeared in bikinis. Even yesteryear stars like Saroja Devi and Padmini had acted in contemporary revealing outfits,” she continues.
