Blessed to have worked with Suseenthiran and Yuvan Shankar Raja, says Genius heroine Priya Lal

Actress Priya Lal, who is making her debut in Tamil cinema through the film ‘Genius’ directed by Suseenthiran, says she feels privileged to have found an important role.

“I am playing an important and a much different role in this film. So far, I am not aware about what the film is and Suseenthiran sir just told me a single line of plot, which instantly urged him to be a part of this film.” Adding more, she says, “I have seen some of his best movies like Vennila Kabadi Kulu, Naan Mahaan Alla, Jeeva, and Pandiya Naadu, which have emphasized substantial roles for the heroines. I am playing the role of Jasmine in this film, who happens to be a nurse and everyone will love my performance. I have just listened to Suseenthiran sir as a student obeying the master and performed likely. The first ever scene that I had to shoot for Genius was the film’s climax. It literally some time for me to grasp the characterization and give the perfect stroke. Because even a small change in expression will ruin the character and I had to be more careful about it. Suseenthiran sir was very helpful in getting the role done perfectly.”

Priya Lal affirms that there are two geniuses in the film – Suseenthiran and Yuvan Shankar Raja. She feels blessed to have found an opportunity to be a part of this film, which is hitting screens on October 26.
