Anjali Won’t Quit Films Without Winning a National Award for ‘best Actress’

Actress Anjali has said that it would be impossible for her to consider quitting the film industry without winning at least one national award for ‘best actress’.

Anjali, one of the most talented actresses of the present generation, has been around for a decade now in Kollywood after debuting as heroine opposite Jiiva in Ram’s Kattradhu Tamizh in 2007. The actress, who made headlines a few years back after her open spat with her aunt, is going about her routine in a calm manner and is busy with her commitments to star in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam films.

Anjali came close to winning the national award for ‘best actress’ with Angaadi Theru by Vasanthabalan in 2008 but narrowly missed out. She is now foraying back into Mollwood after doing a solitary film many years back. Her ‘comeback’ Malayalam film Rosapoo, directed by Biju Menon, is to release shortly, depicting her in an off-beat role of a sex worker.

Awaiting the release of Peranbu in theatres, Anjali was spotted yesterday at the audio-launch of her upcoming film Balloon directed by debutant director Sinish. Anjali pairs up opposite Jai for the second time with this film after Engeyum Eppodhum (2011). “It’s a very lovable concept in Balloon and I have played a role which I haven’t portrayed earlier. Sinish has extracted work in an enjoyable manner.

“Wherever I go, I’m often asked about my marriage plans; I have no plan to get married in the near future. I have many projects to concentrate. How can I ever consider quitting films and getting married without winning a single national award for best actress?” asked the 31-year old actress, who is considered by critics as one of the most deserving actresses to have not won the award so far.
