When you think about the name Aishwarya Rajesh, two words strike a chord that are exactly what her Twitter bio says of her: ‘Chennai ponnu’. Truly meaning Chennai girl, this actress isn’t somebody who could be depicted as a “overnight sensation”. It took years, meticulous intelligent films, and abilities that are uncommon in the business, for our Chennai ponnu to achieve where she is. What’s more, from that point forward, aside from her notoriety, her easy change from that light-looked at young lady with a comforting grin to whatever character she plays on screen has just added more to her collection.
This actress turns 29 today and there will never be been multi day when she didn’t inspire. Appropriate from her sincere execution on screen and her rich authenticity off screen, one can’t resist the urge to pull for this Chennai ponnu. Representing a couple of years currently, here’s a gander at 5 of her best execution up to this point!
- KanaaKanaa, a tough role but the actor simply hits it out of the park with her performance, She living the role in every frame. A village girl who loves her father and wants to make him happy, and so she becomes a cricket Player. The discrimination she faces and the hardship she endures forms the story, with the rest of the film heavily relying on her performance. It’s easy to play the downtrodden but Aishwarya does it without the need to pander to the crowd or overplay the emotions. There’s the rare subtlety in her performance that reinforces the idea of having more women-lead films down South.
2. Vada ChennaiThe bold women in Tamil cinema oscillates between hit-and-miss; where filmmakers occasionally nail it but more often than not, stick to manic-pixie-dream-girl tropes that do nothing for the actress or her role. Her bold performance in Vada Chennai is something that could never b easily forgotten. Playing a bold North Madras girl, Aishwarya’s dialogue delivery and body language as Padma ensured she had you rapt in attention. She made the character lovable and watching her on screen was a treat.
