“Each time she completes a shot, she would faithfully ask, ‘Is that enough? Or should I go for one more take?’ That is the kind of commitment she has,” Thirugnanam says.

Trisha has an interesting lineup of films in her kitty. Having recently walked out of Vikram’s Saamy 2 over creative differences, she is currently shooting for action-thriller Paramapadham Vilayattu and the film’s director Thirugnanam is all praise for her.

Talking to Deccan Chronicle, he said: “Trisha has done action and horror movies in the past. But Paramapadham… will project her in a new dimension. When I went and narrated the script to Trisha, I had not finalised the crew and cast. She was impressed with the story and immediately accepted to be a part of the project. She plays a doctor and will be kidnapped by the antagonists’ group. How she overcomes the hurdles and escapes the situation with her intelligent and bold moves forms the rest.”

Talking about her dedication, the director said: “Each time she completes a shot, she would faithfully ask, ‘Is that enough? Or should I go for one more take?’ That is the kind of commitment she has.” Elaborating more, he reveals, “The first schedule was canned in the forest area of Yercaud. There were a few action sequences involved in those scenes which were choreographed by Stunner Sham. Though we insisted that we can use a body double, Trisha was keen to do them all by herself. They are not the typical action blocks; they are more of brainy and sharp feats.”

The director says the action in the film will be on par with Hollywood standard. On the career front, Trisha currently has Garjanai, Tamil remake of NH10, in the pipeline, apart from projects such as Sathuranga Vettai 2, 96, Mohini and 1818. This year also marks her Malayalam debut with Nivin Pauly-starrer Jude

Trisha is very much in the big league but her choice of films has changed and that’s a good sign. Unlike her contemporaries, she is no longer after star heroes and is keen to take up women-centric projects. Not long ago, she also expressed her interest to star in a biopic on late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. Last year, in an interview to News 18, Trisha had said that she would love to work in a biopic on Jayalalithaa because, “I 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.” 

Unfortunately, no filmmaker so far has expressed interest in doing a biopic on Jayalalithaa.
