Actress Amala Paul is an Indian actress who predominantly works in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam films. Her debut film in a supporting role is in the Malayalam film Neelathamara. Her Tamil debut Mynaa awarded a great success.
Now in a recent interview, she has made a startling statement about the Telugu industry. She revealed why she stopped doing Telugu films. She said the Telugu industry is dominated by film families and their fans. She also said that the heroines there are only for romance and glamour. She said “when I went to the Telugu industry, I realized that there was the family concept. There, the industry is very much dominated by these families and their fans. And the kinds of films that they were making at that point were very different. There would always be two actresses and we’d be there for the love scenes, songs and everything was very glamorous. They were very commercial films and I couldn’t connect much with that industry at that point of time, so I did very few films there.”
Amala Paul also rejected Mani Ratnam’s offer for ‘Ponniyin Selvan’. She said “She was not in the mental state to do it”. The actress took a break for the films in the year 2019 and that is the time she rejected ‘Ponniyin Selvan’. She came back to work in 2021.
