Oviya, who debuted as heroine in last year’s successful film ‘Kalavaani’ opposite ‘Pasanga’ Vimal, was over the moon a fortnight back that she had played a brief guest role in Kamal Haasan-Madhavan-Trisha starrer ‘Manmadhan Ambu’. Oviya had given a good account of herself as an actress of substance in ‘Kalavaani’, directed by award-winning director Pandiraj.
Two weeks into the release of ‘Manmadhan Ambu’, Oviya now says she regrets that she accepted the offer to star in the film. She is especially unhappy that her role had been pruned down ‘heavily’ in the ultimate version of the film. The charm of having been part of a ‘Kamal-starrer’ has waned away, she admits.
