“I am not hesitant in pairing with elderly actors” says Meera Jasmine

Meera Jasmine who debuted as heroine and paired with Madhavan in the film Run, later on paired with young actors like Vijay, Ajith, Sri Kanth, Prasanna, Vishal, Dhanush and Bharath. She also acted in Malayalam and Telugu films. But recently her films did not do well at the box office. Because of this she did not get many offers. So she started pairing with new faces and elderly actors. In Adi Narayana she is pairing with a new face Vetri. In the recently released Mariyadhai she paired with Vijayakanth. In Malayalam she is pairing with elderly actors Mohanlal and Mammooty.

When asked her about this she said,” I am not reluctant acting with elderly actors and new faces. Story is important for me. I will act with anyone if the script is good. I will not lose my image because of this. I have acted with Narain and Prithviraj in Malayalam films when they were new faces. Now they are acting in many films. There is  no harm in acting with new faces. I was not hesitant when I paired with Vijayakanth in Mariyadhai. I see the importance in the character. I am not concerned if the hero is young or old. In a song sequence in Mariyadhai I would look slightly fat. The song was shot in Australia. I was not well at that time and because of some side effects I put on some weight.”
