    Prasanna: Soft role for now

    Wednesday, September 29, 2004
    After the success of Azhagiya Theeye, Prasanna has signed three films as hero. He started out his career as one of the five in Five Stars directed by Susi Ganesan and produced by Manirathinam. After this he had two releases Ragasiymay and Kathal Dot Com, both were duds. He speaks about his struggle and future plans.

    Tell us about your experience working in `Azhagiya Theeye’?

    Radha Mohan narrated a subject to me. I liked it and Prakashraj who produced the film too felt I was apt. I gave my best for the film. For the first projection had Cheran, Susi Ganesan and many from filmdom. Cheran and Susi immediately congratulated me. This was a relief. Next was the tour of Tamilnadu to promote the film. The theatre response gave me the confidence that I could survive in filmdom. The success has given all of us who worked in `Azhagiya Theeye’an address and identity.

    You're initial days?

    I applied to an advertisement from Madras Talkies. I was surprised when I was asked to come to Chennai. Susi Ganesan selected me after I was screen tested. During my Five Star days I struggled a lot. I traveled by bus and often walked all the way to producer’s office to give my stills. Though the film had five of us I was lucky to get the pat for good acting. This led me to sign two films Raghasiymay and Kathal Dot Com and unfortunately both bombed. Again I was back to square one till `Azhagiya Theeye’ happened.

    You're future projects?

    I have signed a film for Cheran’s home production, which is to be directed by Vijay Milton (cameraman). A film for Gautham Menon’s associate Krishna who is turning director and also a film with the `Azhagiya Theeye’ team again.

    What kind of roles are you looking forward to?

    I think I should continue to play the homely soft roles for some time. This image has come about and I should build it up slowly. Later on only should I take up action. Only soft roles for now. Even comic hero roles too would do well.

    Who is your girl friend?

    (Laughs) I never had anyone. Even in college (co-ed) I am friendly with girls but no one fell in love with me nor did I fall in love with anyone. I think the thought never crossed my mind. After `Azhagiya Theeye’ my mind is full of thoughts as to how to succeed in films.
