EXCERPTS FROM THE INTERVIEW 

How did you decide to be a part of the song?

Boney ji called me and said it was the opening song for the remake of Pink which is a film I really enjoyed. I was happy to see this happening in the south. 

You haven’t really done a solo fast track before this or so-called item song. So, how was the experience shooting for this one?

It was hard only because I had to learn some Tamil lines which the director added at the last minute, although I speak basic Tamil I'm out of practice and this was quite complicated. Thankfully, I didnt have complicated dance steps.

Did you get to meet and interact with Ajith?

Yes, Ajith was very polite and was actually the only man on set to go out of his way to come say hi to me. He's lovely and we bonded over our love for pet dogs.

How important do you think such films are for raising an issue?

If it's made right, such a film can really change mentalities of young fans, especially, males who look up to someone like Ajith.

Would you be open to doing an item number in a Hindi film?

I've always said I would, provided the context of the song appeals to me.

You do speak Tamil we hear. Would you want to do a full-fledged Tamil film or films in other languages?

Of course, I'd like to do a film in Tamil or French but not in other languages that I don't speak.

How was the experience shooting with a unit in the south?

Honestly, I was in the Hyderabad Film City for a couple of days. I didn't interact much with anyone on the set except Shraddha Srinath and Yunohoo as they were on stage with me. However, I had a great experience of working with a small South crew previously this year with a director called R. Arvind and we made a film called Emma and Angel.

Slated to release in August, Nerkonda Paarvai is directed by H. Vinoth and besides Ajith, the film stars Shraddha Srinath, Abhirami Iyer and Andrea in the pivotal roles. Have you watched the lyrical Kaalam song featuring Kalki? Check it out below.
