Hansika Motwani is a Mumbai girl and is now pairing with Vijay in Velayudham, with Dhanush in Mappillai and with Jayam Ravi in Itch. While speaking to the media she said,” I am a Mumbai girl. My mother was a doctor. After coming from school I use to sit in her clinic and play pranks.
I use to mimic the people who are there. Seeing this I got the opportunity to act in an Ad film at the age of nine. I also acted with Sharukh Khan in a car Ad film. After this I acted in a TV serial.
I got 14 best child actor awards for acting in this serial. From that time itself I use to pass my time before the camera. Juhi Chawla got me a small role in the Hindi film Koi Mil Gaya. After this I got introduced in a Telugu film which had Allu Arjun in the lead role in the year 2007. After this I had acted in a Hindi film in Aap Ka Zaroor.
Both the films earned me a good name. Then I started acting in Kannada films and now I am acting in Tamil films. Many are asking me whether I will able to withstand in Tamil industry. Don’t think that I came from Mumbai to dance and go. I am a powerful performer.
I am called switch off-switch on star in Hindi and Telugu industry because I can immediately perform any reaction given. It is like how a bulb burns when the switch is on. Is there anybody here to compete with me.”
