Shwetha Menon is now acting in ‘Aravaan’ directed by Vasanthabalan. “I do a dasi role in this period film. I liked the role when the director offered me and immediately accepted to do. After my entry into Tamil with ‘Naan Avan Illai’ I did not get good offers. If I get good roles I will continue doing Tamil films”, the actress says.
