Sakshi Agarwal gearing up for good opportunities from the southern industry
Actress Sakshi Agarwal, who made her acting debut with last year’s Tamil horror thriller “Yoogan”, says her days of experimentation are over and she’s gearing up for good opportunities from the entire southern industry.
“I signed my first four films in quick succession, simply because I wanted to try my hands at different genres and get as much as exposure as possible. When I signed these films, I didn’t even think much about who I was going to be paired with. What was really important for me was that I was learning,” said Sakshi to reporters.
Having tried her hands at different genres, she’s ready to take the plunge.
“I’ve been exposed to both good and bad things in the industry in the last one year, and I feel I’ve evolved as a person and as well as an actor. I’m done experimenting, and it’s time to be open for good opportunities,” she said.
In this week’s Tamil release, “Kavita Kannadasan Kaadhalika Poraanga” aka “KaKaKaPo”, Sakshi has a pivotal part to play.
“You could call it a heroine-centric film. Despite the presence of a battalion of comedians, the story revolves around my character. It’s about the first kiss in a girl’s life but the story has been treated in a comical way and there’s no room for anything controversial,” she said.
Sakshi has an introductory song in the film, which is directed by Vijay.
“It’s a song which explores the navarasas. I make an appearance in nine different getups and each one is unique,” she added.
Describing the film as a live action comic book, Sakshi said it also has elements of fantasy.
“Apart from oodles of comedy, the film also has shades of fantasy. With so many characters aimed to entertain audiences, it will be like watching a live action comic book,” she said.
Asked if she didn’t feel lost amid the presence of ensemble cast including Robo Shankar, Karunas, Powerstar Srinivasan and Mayilsamy among others, Sakshi said: “On a personal as well as professional level, I learnt a lot from them.”
Sakshi’s next Tamil outing will also be with “KaKaKaPo” director Vijay.
