Actress Sunaina is on cloud nine after the recent success of Kadhalil Vizhundhen. Chennai Times caught up with her...

Her film Kadhalil Vizhundhen (KV) is doing well at the BO and this is indeed pleasant news for the actress. “Yes, it was a brilliant experience and this is my first hit after two average films in Telugu and Kannada. I am so happy,” she beams.
So, how did Kadhalil Vizhundhen happen? “Prasath sir’s unit had come to Hyderabad looking for a fresh face for his film. I decided to try my luck and took a screen test. He said that I would suit the role well as I had an attractive smile,” says she. “I was also confident that I will look good in the film as it had Milton sir doing the cinematography,” she adds.

Facing the arclights is not new to this lass as she has already done a Telugu film titled Tenth Class and a Kannada flick titled Gange Baare Tunge Baare. “But, KV is indeed the turning point in my career."
Ask her about the experience of working with Nakul and the actress smiles, “Nakul is a bundle of energy. He makes his presence felt wherever he goes. Nakul and I used to fight on the sets every day. He has become very close to my mother and now we are like family.” The actress was quick to comment on the transformation of the chubby Nakul in Boys to the energetic chap in KV. “I loved Boys and used to wonder what he was doing in the film. I never thought that I would play his love interest in future. When I saw the slim Nakul on the sets, I was taken aback.”

What does the actress have to say about the hot kissing scene where she was alleged to have encouraged Nakul? “Those are baseless allegations. In fact, I was the one who was nervous. I have never kissed anyone in my life. When Prasath sir asked me to do this scene, I was really embarrassed. I was so panicky that immediately after the scene, I burst into laughter.”
Has life changed after KV for this Bharathnatyam dancer? “It has changed for the good and bad. People who never cared for me are coming back to my life. There is lot of fake affection being showered on me. I still prefer to spend time with my friends and family.” And, a word on her forthcoming projects? “Another movie with Nakul for Sun Pictures,” she signs off. A L R E A D Y I N L O V E !
If guys out there are dreaming to date this pretty lass, here is news that will put them off! The actress already has a prince charming in mind. Even though the actress refuses to reveal the identity of the person, she is more than happy to explain about her love interest. “Two years ago, I approached a friend of mine and proposed to him. He rejected my love for some genuine personal reasons. But, if one day, he comes back to me, I will be the happiest person on the earth.“
