In her most recent work, Simran will be sharing the big screen with Rajinikanth in the upcoming movie, Petta, and here’s what she had to say about it:
I am completing the whole package of my career with this movie with Rajini sir. In my entire 22 years of career, this is the first time working with him. It’s an honour. In fact, it is very difficult to get leading roles once an actress in married. And I have married for 15 years now. Only few directors like Gautham Menon in Vaaranam Aayiran and Karthik Subbaraj in Petta offered me strong roles.
