After being a heroine, you now play insignificant character roles.
In today's cinema, when heroines are not being offered significant roles, how can you expect us to play powerful roles? I am lucky to do some good ones in films such as Goa, where director Venkat Prabhu has worked the screenplay to make my role important.
Can you mention some of your films that stood out because of your acting skills?
I have done over 300 films of which I've played the heroine in 50. Some of my memorable films are Roja, Basha, Puthiya Pathai (which gave me a big second round in the field), Chinna Goundar and Solla Marantha Kathai — I've mentioned only the films where I was not the heroine.
Which do you like more — the big or the small screen?
Each has its advantages and disadvantages. All I can say is I want to remain in the film industry.
Have you achieved what you wanted here?
I may not be a big star, but I am appreciated by one and all. I feel that's an achievement.
What's Sathyapriya in real life like?
Friendly, lovable and kind- hearted.
