During a recent interaction with a leading website, Sana Makbul—who is making her Kollywood debut with ‘Rangoon’ —praised her co-star Gautham Karthik and said that he treated her with utmost respect on the sets.
“He was so kind and helpful. He never made me feel that I don’t know Tamil. Even when I fumble with my lines, he used to tell me – Chill! Relax! He was so supportive and made sure I was comfortable with what was happening. This kind of a rapport is essential to bring the right kind of feel on screen. I thank Gautham for this,” she added.
Besides this, Sana opened up about how AR Murugadoss once compared her to actress Simran and said that she wanted to live up to his expectations.
“When he saw the rushes, he came to me and said I reminded him of Simran. If he says, I can be next Simran; I want to make his words true. I want to rule the south film industry. I want to be on top. I will work on it hard,” she said.
For the uninitiated, ‘Rangoon’ is touted to be a crime-drama and has been directed by Rajkumar Periasamy. It features Karthik in the role of a Burmese expatriate and is set in the year 2000. If all goes as planned, ‘Rangoon’ will hit screens this Friday.
On a related note, Karthik made his big screen debut with the 2013 release ‘Kadal’ which received favourable reviews. However, his subsequent releases failed to live up to expectations. Let’s hope that ‘Rangoon’ helps him bounce back in style.
