Tamil actress Sangeetha quotes
# ” But I think even love marriages should happen with the consent of the parents. Only then one can be happy. One can fall in love at anytime. So I really can’t say whether a love marriage or an arranged marriage would be the ideal one for me. I would prefer my man to be a very bold, jovial and friendly person.”
# “It is true that I refused offers to act when I was quite young. I was surrounded by people related to the industry and had every opportunity to start my career much earlier than I did. There was also more pressure than I would have liked to enter an industry I was inclined to in any case.”
# “My ambitions are quite ordinary actually. I am a normal person trying to live and survive in the industry. I had to struggle a lot in the beginning. Now I am happy with what I have done so far. There is also much that I want to do. But my ambitions cannot disturb my peace of mind. I want to live quietly and help those around me as much as I can. ”
# “I have not done as many roles as I would like in Tamil though. It is not that I am refusing roles in Tamil. I first have to have the required days free in my schedule. I also am interested only in those roles that give me scope for good performance.”
# ” ‘Pithamagan’ is among my favourite Tamil films. Full credit for the character I played in the film goes to director Bala. That character’s speech and behaviour were all a reflection of his imagination.”
# “There are several rumours doing the rounds about me, about how I am being hounded out of town and have settled in Hyderabad and about how I am refusing to act with senior actors. Initially I used to be hurt and worried about how this would affect my career. Now, I don’t let them bother me. I have always chosen roles based on whether they appeal to me.”
