Samantha college dream comes true with Suriya
"I watched Khakha Khakha when I was in my 11th. Since then I've been a huge fan of Suriya. In college, me and my gang never attend the culturals. We used to sneak away and spend the whole time in the canteen. Once, Suriya was the chief guest. We gathered at the hall and made so much noise, just to make him notice us," recalled Samantha.
"Today, it is a sort of dream come true for me to pair up with him," she added. Ask her about her role in Anjaan, she says, "I play a character named Jeeva. The director has apparently named the character in remembrance of his friend and cinematographer, late Jeeva."
"Generally, Lingusamy's lead ladies have meaty characters and my role too will have some stuff. Also, he always makes sure his heroines are looking pretty onscreen," beams the actress, who is also part of the upcoming Vijay-Murugadoss project.
Meanwhile, major portion of Anjaan is being shot at Mumbai. Directed by Lingusamy, the film also has Yuvan Shankar Raja's music and Padma Shri Santosh Sivan's cinematography.
