Shanthini, who doesn't mind to glamour within limits, says, "the likes of Radhika, Kushboo and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan always impressed me for they have a say in the script in the hero-driven industry".

On her experiences shooting for ‘Naadodigal’, she says, ‘I just did what the character demanded. It was a learning curve for me. My role won laurels from everyone. At home, both my parents and siblings were happy but at the same time, upset that that few of my scenes were chopped".

Throwing light on ‘Madhil Mel Poonai, she says, “It is directed by Selva Raghavan’s assistant Bharani and the lead role is played by Vijay Vasanth. I play a cute character and it has a say in the script”.
