Entry into Cinema
Having been so involved in the classical arts, what made Sukanya turn to films? With her trademark disarming smile, she says, "Acting just happened. When I was selected as the heroine for the film "Puthu Nellu Puthu Nathu" I wasn't exactly overwhelmed with joy. I always wanted to do something different. So when the opportunity came, I was just happy to do it. It was only after the film's release that I thought I was capable of acting. This was enough to motivate me to do roles that not only satisfied me, but also film-goers. "Walter Vetrivel" and "Indian" are fine examples of how I explored my creative urge. But even when I was doing films, dance continued to be an all-consuming passion."
