Riya Suman to make her Tamil debut
Actress Riya Suman’s impactful performances in her earlier films, Majnu and Paper Boy, won her brownie points. She was able to garner acclaim with her vivacious and honest performances. The hard work is bearing fruit in the form of a huge opportunity to be the leading lady opposite actor Jiiva, in his upcoming bilingual.
Apparently, the film’s director, Rathina Shiva, was looking for an actress who can look cute and also deliver a commanding performance. He happened to come across Riya’s photos and upon watching her earlier film, Paper Boy, and eventually found his leading lady.
“I am thrilled to make my Tamil debut and I could not have asked for a better launch pad than debuting in a film opposite Jiiva. I play his love interest and an IT professional in the film. I have just begun shooting for the film and what I love about my role is the growth arc of the character I am playing. I get visibility all through the film,” shares the actress.
The Majnu actress is finding Tamil to be quite a tongue twister right now. “I had time to prepare for my Telugu films but I hardly got any time to prepare or learn the language for my Tamil debut because everything happened so fast. Thankfully, my team has been helping me with the language,” she adds. Vels Films International is bankrolling the film.
