Hemamalini says that instead of glamour roles she prefer to act in roles that would bring out her acting talents. While speaking about this, Hemamalini said,” In Indra Vizha I am been stamped as a glamour heroine.I did glamour role in my next film Nan Avan Illai 2 too. I want to act in roles that would bring out my acting talents instead of acting in glamour roles. Now this has been fulfilled in the film Guru Shishyan. I am wearing half saree in this film. Apart from this I am donning the role of a bold girl.
There are steamy scenes where I clash with Sundar C. Recently the shooting of this film took place in Malaysia. When the shooting was taking place in the mid sea, there was a heavy rainfall. We could not escape from there. We were stuck up under a bridge for more than 4 ½ hours. The rain stopped. Then we came out from there. Talks are going on with regard to me acting in a Tamil and Malayalam film. I also want to act in Kannada and Telugu films.”
