"Tamil Cinema Doesn't Realise My ..." - Andrea Voices Out Her Frustration

  • 11 Apr 2019

Speaking at her recent movie Maaligai's teaser launch, the gorgeous actress Andrea might have let out her frustration on how the Tamil Cinema fraternity perceives and treats her as an actress.

Apparently, the movie was supposed to be filmed in Kannada. However, the producer felt that Andrea has a better 'market' in Tamilnadu. Hence, the movie was first completed in the Tamil language.

"I was a little amazed how a producer from Mumbai and a director from Karnataka had this thought (that she has better reach in Tamil), but somehow Tamil directors have missed it!" she said with a smirk.

Catch her full speech from the launch event here:

From her speech, it can be seen that she feels less appreciated in Tamil cinema for the incredible work she has been doing. At the same event, actress Kasturi complimented Andrea on her choice of roles especially in the movie Taramani.

"Since her first film Pachai Kili Muthucharam, Andrea has never done the standard roles that Kollywood heroines are accustomed to. In a movie, with Kamal, she's a dancer in one scene and immediately starts fighting alongside him in the next," she said.

Andrea has always been very picky with her roles in films, choosing only scripts that give her space to perform and somehow influence the storyline. Maaligai is a female-centric 'action, fantasy and horror' flick that will see her playing in a dual role, as a cop and princess.

Directed by Dil Sathya, the film will feature Ashutosh Rana, Kannada actor Karthik Jayaram, Tamil filmmaker KS Ravikumar, Manobala, Aadukalam Naren, Madhumita and Telugu comedian Ali.

Take a look at the recently-released teaser:
