I love Rajnikanth for his style says Parvatii Nair


You were educated in the UAE. How did you arrive to India?

I came here for further studies, since my dad shifted to Kenya for almost 2 years on a business trip.

Were you interested in modelling during your college days?

Yes… I did ramp shows since then. I was also into dancing, painting, literary activities, acting and public speaking.


I’m proud girls from my state are considered beautiful and talented and am proud of those who made it big. I sure hope I get to do different kinds of films in all languages, with Tamil being among my favourites!

Did you have to struggle to establish yourself in the fashion industry?

I did not struggle for a name. I took it as it came, just as a hobby, never as my only profession. I did ads by skipping college or bunking work or during the weekends. And some brands I endorsed gave me instant popularity

How do you feel being associated with brands like Mysore Sandal and Malabar Gold?

Mysore Sandal happened because I won the Miss Sandalwood title in Karnataka in 2010 and so I was the face of their brand. It felt great as I was an engineering student but managed to win a pageant like that… Malabar Gold was special. Though I was a Reddy bride in the campaign, the hoardings were used all over the country and in the gulf countries as well, including papers and magazines. It’s still very special.

Your acting career started with Poppins in Malayalam. Did you feel comfortable pursuing a career in the film industry?

Yes I did because I initially worked only with people I knew personally. I loved the experience, and that encouraged me to take up more films. I found it challenging and interesting to portray different roles as I was passionate about acting.

On Story Kathe, tell us about your acting career in Kannada cinema.

Story Kathe was a very raw and intelligent film. It was great taking up a film like that and that is the first film I shot for. It was an experiment and the film had great reviews so I’m happy about it.

You are part of Samuthrakani’s Nimirndhu Nil. How is your experience working with him?

Kani sir is a great director. That’s my first experience in Tamil and a wonderful exposure too.

Tamil cinema has always welcomed actresses from other regions. Nayantara, Amala Paul and many others have made it big here in Kodambakkam. What are your plans?

I’m proud girls from my state are considered beautiful and talented and am proud of those who made it big. I sure hope I get to do different kinds of films in all languages, with Tamil being among my favourites!

Which cinema do you prefer: Malayalam, Kannada or Tamil?

I love all languages equally. I would want to do good films in all languages, but since I love the trend in Tamil and brilliant films with great music too, I’m waiting for good opportunities in Tamil.

Will you portray bold and glamorous characters?

I would prefer roles that suit me and wear clothes that look classy on me, not vulgar. So as long as I can carry off the outfit and it wouldn’t hamper my performance, I would be ok.

How much do you know about Tamil cinema? Who are your favourite stars here?

I have always loved Tamil cinema and I think the actors are very talented and versatile. I love a lot of the actors from Kamal Haasan for his performance, Rajni for his style, Ajit and Suriya for their charm. Dhanush for his brilliant acting, Vikram for the way he carries out just any role, etc. I like different aspects of different actors, so it would be unfair to give just a few names!
