Akshay chooses Trisha
A new south sensation is going to firm her foot in Bollywood opposite stunt hero Akshay Kumar. South star Trisha is going to make her Bollywood debut with director Priyadarshan’s 'Khatta Meetta' to be produced by Akshay’s production company Hari Om. It is learnt that Trisha is the personal choice of Akki. He saw some of Trisha’s Kollywood films and impressed with her acting and style. When he expressed his desire to meet the actress, Trisha flew down to meet him. Impressed with her, Akshay Kumar signed Trisha.
Trisha was over excited to debut in Bollywood. She has delivered number of hits in the South and was waiting for the right opportunity to step in Bollywood. What excites her the most is that she will be directed by that same man who has introduced her to film industry. Trisha is again looking forward to work under director Priyadarshan.
She expressed her thrill in the following words, "Priyadarshan is the person who has introduced me to films. Even after I completed Lesa Lesa, I was not of the idea of continuing my career as an actress. But Priyadarshan only guided me properly and advised me to continue. Now once again he is giving me a new dimension through his Hindi movie. I’m glad that Priyan has given me this opportunity and all I want is to go and do my best..."
Priyadharshan commented, "Trisha is playing the heroine opposite Akshay Kumar in this film. Akshay was keen on doing the film with a new face, that too from south and after seeing Trisha’s performance in a few South Indian movies, Trisha has become his only choice..."
