When it rains, it pours in torrents for some. Hansika sure belongs to such a category as offers are pouring in at her doorstep post the success of Oru Kal Oru Kannadi (OKOK). The bubbly 21 year old has had an even share of hits and failures so far in Tamil as her first two films bombed miserably and the next two films (including Vijay’s Velayudham and OKOK) have performed well at the box-office.
Hansika has bagged as many as seven films in Tamil and Telugu and is having her call-sheet diary filled for the next 18 months. These films include 5 Tamil and 2 Telugu projects which are under various stages of production. Talking about competition, she smiles and says that the industry has space to accommodate all the talented actresses. “I compete with myself and with nobody else,” she says, with the flooring smile in place.
The actress was recently awarded the title of ‘Dreamgirl of Tamil films’ at a Singapore event. Fittingly enough, this fair-complexioned actress has caught the attentions of the Tamil and Telugu audiences in a big way. She has recently signed up a Telugu film to be made by Bellamgonda Suresh and has also signed films opposite Aarya, Suriya and Simbu. She has formally appealed to the press not to refer to her by her full name of Hansika Motwani; she has said that mere ‘Hansika’ is enough.
She is also being hailed as the next ‘Khushboo’ as she too looks bubbly and beautiful as Khushboo did when she debuted in Tamil films in the late eighties. “I don’t plan my life well in advance but take things in their stride. In fact, I’m extremely happy at the way my career has progressed thus far. I’d love to thank the media and the journalists for encouraging me and writing so many nice things about me!” concludes Hansika.
