Last seen on screen in Nivin Pauly starrer Malayalam drama titled Hey Jude, actor Trisha Krishnan's first Tamil release of the year will be upcoming horror-thriller Mohini, which has been confirmed to hit the screens worldwide on July 27. Over the weekend, the makers made an announcement via a special poster. The project has been trying to hit the screens for a long time. Directed by Ramana Madesh, an erstwhile assistant of director Shankar, the film has been produced by S Lakshman Kumar of Prince Pictures.
Talking about the project and roping in Trisha in the titular role, Madhesh told Firstpost in an interview: â€śHeroism is always told from the heroâ€™s perspective. We wanted to showcase it from a heroineâ€™s perspective and Trisha was the best choice. Weâ€™re addressing a very important social issue and we felt itâ€™ll reach far and wide when itâ€™s narrated from a heroineâ€™s perspective. Itâ€™s a very touchy subject and saying it from a womanâ€™s point of view will have a stronger impact.â€ť
On the career front, Trisha has about half a dozen projects up for release. She currently has Garjanai, Tamil remake of NH10, in the pipeline, apart from projects such as Sathuranga Vettai 2, 96, Mohini and 1818.
The teaser of her next with Vijay Sethupathi titled 96, a travelogue film, which is being directed by C Prem Kumar was released recently. Though the teaser doesnâ€™t reveal much it looks like Vijay Sethupathi plays a photographer in the film, while Trisha will be playing his romantic interest.
Trisha, unlike her contemporaries, is no longer after star heroes and is keen to take up of women-centric projects. One of her dreams is to play late TN Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in her biopic.
In a recent chat with her fans on Twitter, she reiterated that she is still open to the idea of starring in a biopic. Trisha picked Jayalalithaa from an option of three - Kalpana Chawla, Jayalalithaa, and Marilyn Monroe.
Last year, in an interview to News 18, Trisha said she would love work in the biopic of Jayalalithaa. â€śI think she is all woman power and that's the biopic I would like to do. She has got a very interesting career graph as well a very intriguing political graph.â€ť Unfortunately, no filmmaker so far has expressed interest in doing a biopic on Jayalalithaa yet.
