Padmapriya, whom you fondly remember as the beauty from Saif Ali Khan’s recent movie Chef got into a candid conversation with us.
In an exclusive interview with Umesh Punwani of KoiMoi she opened up about the failure of Chef, how she started her career and shared some interesting trivia about her personal life. Here are the excerpts:
You slayed the role of Radha with your hotness in Chef, in the original Sofia Vergara’s role was so different from yours?
Yes! Sofia’s role was very different from mine. We thought Chef was an interesting film, we thought it’s for our audience but it happens sometimes. We thought people would like it but it’s an independent film, it’s not from those hardcore commercial movies. But movies are doing fair job, I think it’s an interesting mix of films that have come out this year. Very different and experimental films have released this year, Rahul Bose’s Poorna started the trend. Even though a film like A Death In The Gunj didn’t do well at the box office but it got its audience and its attention. This wasn’t the trend few years ago.
Chef has been an amazing journey for you, missing it?
Yes! Very much. What do you guys see, there’s much more to it behind the scenes. Everyone has worked really hard for the film. Raja Krishna Menon (Director) and team did a lot of effort to maintain that comfort level throughout the shoot. It was amazing while we’re shooting it and when you see the film you see those special memories from my life. Chef has been a beautiful film that I’ve been a part of.
