Since I did not know the language, I wasn’t doing my best. This was in February. In April, they called me again. But this time, with the help of my friends, I had managed to familiarise myself with the language and did well. Finally, director Gautham called me and asked me what I wanted to know first the good news or the bad news. I told him to give me the bad news first, and he said that I will have to brush up on my Tamil. And then, he told me the good news that I would be acting in the film.”The film is a remake of the acclaimed Kannada film Ulidavaru Kandanthe, and Shraddha says that she has only seen that film in parts. “In a way, I feel that is going to help me because I will not be influenced by the performance of the actress who had played the role in the original
Interestingly, Shraddha played a journalist in U-Turn and will play a journalist in her debut Tamil flick as well. The actress has stated that the roles are quite different.
