Priyamani got the National Award for acting in the film Paruthiveeran. She is also a leading actress in Telugu. Priyamani while speaking to the media said,” I am ready to act in any kind of roles. When I go to the shooting sets, I will act as per the instructions of the director. If the story demands I am ready to act in glamour roles. But at the same time I will not act in semi nude scenes. I got the National Award for my acting in the film Paruthiveeran. But I am not interested to do such kind of roles. I am not after awards.
Once in a way I will don such kind of roles. You should have the talent for acting and also agree to do glamour roles. Then only you can withstand in cinema. Otherwise we are sidelined. No actresses have come here to do service for arts. Every actress aim is to make money. I am now popular in Bollywood because of my acting in Raavanan and Raktha Charithram. I am not interested to act in Hindi films. I am ready to act in two heroine subjects. I have already acted with Anushka and Vimala Raman. My future in cinema is very bright. Now I have got a role similar to the role which Anushka donned in Arundhathi. I am learning sword fighting to act in this role.”
