'Bollywood better organised than southern film industry'
IANS [ Thu, Feb 18, 2010 ]
- New Delhi, Feb 18 (IANS) Southern actress Sadaa Sayed, who will be seen in Sangeeth Sivan's spooky thriller "Click", says Bollywood has a better work culture than the southern film industry.
"I must say Bollywood is more organised and punctual in comparison to South Indian cinema where the shoots are delayed for no specific reason," Sadaa told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
She started her career with Telugu film "Jayam" in 2002. One of her biggest hits was the 2005 Tamil film "Anniyan". But the 26-year-old wanted to start her career with Hindi movies.
"I always wanted to start my career with Hindi films, but southern film scripts came my way much earlier and I had no reason to say no. I am a Maharashtrian and language has never been a restriction," she said.
Sivan's "Click" is described as a scary, dark and blood-curling film that also stars Shreyas Talpade, Sneha Ullal, Rehan Khan and Chunky Pandey.
Releasing Friday, "Click" revolves around a young photographer and his girlfriend. He takes beautiful pictures and when they're printed they hide a secret. Sadaa plays a fashion model who is emotionally dependent on her boyfriend.
The actress is fascinated by love stories like "Chandni".
"I want to do roles that interest me and I am personally keen to do romantic roles. Love stories interest me a lot. A role where I can show femininity... something like 'Chandni' and 'Chaalbaaz' where the female actresses were given beautiful characters to play," she said.
