Tamannaah Bhatia Says Her Role In Simbu’s AAA Is “Effervescent, Not Bubbly”

Admtting that actresses are usually cast in “frivolous roles” in Tamil cinema, Tamannaah said that her role in Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan (AAA) would be a “full-length one”.


Tamannaah told Times of India “My role is quite pivotal, and a full-length one at that. Usually, the heroine’s characterisation is a frivolous one in our films, but this one is youthful and innocent. I would call it more of an effervescent girl, and not bubbly one. I play the role of an artist and so, my role has do with all things artistic in the movie.”

There has been much media speculation about her co-star STR’s look after a poster of the film showed Simbu as an aged man called ‘Ashwin Thatha’. Tamannah is also in the poster, presumably admiring Ashwin Thatha.

Tamannaah said STR’s new persona was one of the things that appealed to her about the film, “In the poster, if you notice, Simbu is a granddad and he is better known as Ashwin Thatha. My pairing with Simbu is not a run-of-the-mill kind that you get to usually see in commercial films. That is one of the reasons why I took up this movie.”


Adhik Ravichandran (Trisha Illana Nayanthara) is directing the film. Simbu plays a triple role in the film. Each character will be based in a different city (Chennai, Madurai, and Dubai). The film also has three heroines, including Shriya Saran and Tamannah. The team hasn’t yet cast their third female lead.

A teaser released a few weeks ago showed one of Simbu’s characters – ‘Madurai Michael’. The sequence is set in the ’80s and also features Shriya Saran.

In a periscopic interview, STR had said that the movie was in a “different league” altogether. Like Vallavan and Manmadhan this movie would explore the range of his acting skills. He also termed the movie “pakka mass” (full-fledged commercial) and said he was confident it would entertain his fans.

Produced by Michael Rayappan of Global Infotainment, Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
