One can well expect Trisha to deliver in her debut Bollywood outing KHATTA MEETHA. After all she is not quite a newbie in the industry and already has close to 35 films to her credit down South. In the industry for more than 7 years now, she has seen quite a lot and is pretty much established. Can one safely assume that with KHATTA MEETHA being her newest release, she is in the best phase of her career?
"I won't say that it is the best phase of my career but this is the most exciting phase for sure", she says after a brief pause, "In my career so far, I have had number of good phases. This is an extension of that and in KHATTA MEETHA I am looking forward to more audience acceptance and appreciation coming in."
"Actually, I am also quite keen to see that how do people from South react to KHATTA MEETHA because they can be expected to observe my performance in a far closer way. I have put 110% in KHATTA MEETHA and can't wait for 23rd July when the film releases", she adds.
Well, the date truly holds good significance for her. After all she makes her Bollywood debut with Priyadarshan as a director and Akshay Kumar as the leading man. Could it actually have got any better than this for Trisha?
"I don't think so", smiles Trisha, "This is as good as it could have got. It was this very combination that made me take this step. Ever since my movies in South started doing well, there were questions around when would Bollywood happen for me. This is why when Priyan called and said that he had a film for me with Akshay, I had no reasons to say no. It was a meaty role and everything was just so perfect about the entire packaging. Everything just happened over a 10 minutes phone call, as simple as that."
