The tall, doe-eyed beauty Bindu Madhavi, is set to woo audiences with yet another comedy, close on the heels of the superhit Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga (KBKR). In Desingu Raja (DR), directed by Ezhil, Bindu plays a small town girl, and teams up with her KBKR hero Vimal yet again. Speaking to CE, the actor is upbeat about the way her career is going, and confesses, “I think, Desingu Raja will take me to the next level.”
For Bindu, shooting for DR was one joy ride. “At one point, Vimal and I were shooting simultaneously for KBKR and DR and it was just a change of locations for us! So from the first day, the film began on a happy note because Vimal and I already got along well.” Speaking about her hit team actor Vimal she says, “I really enjoy working with him. He’s a very genuine person. He’s a hassle – free co-star, always an oasis of peace and quiet when he’s not working. Like me, he doesn’t rehearse much and we both give our shots spontaneously. So, it was really easy to work with him.” The film has a large turnout of actors, who increase the comedy quotient and Bindu giggles, “At one time, there were 15 actors and director Ezhil used to get tired by the time he finished explaining their shots to all the actors! I enjoyed Soori’s comedy a lot and would sit and watch him do his take. He doesn’t speak English and I speak broken Tamil, so our conversations were all the more funny!”
Bindu plays Thamarai, a small town girl, but the role is vastly different from that in KBKR. Off screen, Bindu is a stylish and trendy girl. So how comfy is she in roles so vastly different? She reveals, “My dad was a government employee and till high school, I was always living in several small towns. It was only later that we settled in Hyderabad. So, I have lived most of my life in rural areas and I am very comfortable wearing those costumes and love playing a small town girl.”
Apart from DR, Bindu is currently shooting for a film with Vishnu, where she plays a police inspector, donning the uniform for the first time. In director Simbudevan’s Oru Kanniyum Moonu Kalavaniyum opposite Arulnidhi, she plays a thief.
