Iniya’s juggling act


Of late, Iniya has been shuttling between ad shoots and film spots. The actress has several interesting films in her kitty, including Pulivaal, Ninaithathu Yaaro and Rendavathu Padam.
She says, “I have been acting since when I was four. During my teens, I took up modelling and have shot for ad films as well. I’ve also won a couple of beauty queen titles. Modelling has remained one of my favourites all these years. Though I have film commitments, I manage to work on ad films at regular intervals.”
Iniya has acted in several short films as well. She says, “The experience I’ve gained while working on short films helped me enact my roles with ease. Even now, I keep in touch with the short filmmakers.”
Meanwhile, the girl has lost oodles of weight. “I had to put on weight for playing a rural role in Vaagai Sooda Va. But, I had a tough time losing what I’d gained. But, I managed to shed a couple of kilos to sport a stylish look in Pulivaal. I am planning to maintain this frame for my other films as well,” she smiles.
