Trisha's acting skills have never been in doubt. Her position was consolidated by the film Nuvvosthanante Nenoddantana. She had never to look back after that. Though her sway has been on a wane ever since Anushka, Illeana, Kajal, and Samantha began to hog the limelight, her recent Bodyguard performance was an effective answer to her detractors. Will they ever dare to writer her off?
That said, it must be added in the same vein that at a time when almost cherubical faces is the reigning trend in Tollywood, the 28-year old actress is naturally being seen as an ageing diva. The audience have generally lapped up her performance in Bodyguard. But some of them have found her a bit old for the role. What makes it all the more serious is that this section is understandably not in a negligible minority.
People are complaining about her zero-size (well, almost) looks. While she is frail for some, for others, her face is already showing subtle hints of ageing.
The question some of them are definitely asking is, if Trisha looked oldish opposite Venkatesh, who is double her age, how will she look opposite Junior NTR (her Dammu co-star), who is younger to her?
