‘Annadurai’ starring Vijay Antony, directed by Srinivasan will be the biggest release of this week. Releasing on November 30th, this much expected movie has newbie Diana Champika playing one of Vijay Antony’s pair. The love duet ‘GST song’ with Vijay Antony and Diana Champika is already a chartbuster and the young Champika is said to hold a lot of promise.
A final year Visual communication student in Loyola college, Diana Champika was a child artiste to begin with. Pursuing her current education in an institution (Loyala )which has been producing numerous heros over the years Champika got into modelling and was rewarded with few established brands.
Speaking about ‘Annadurai’, Diana Champika says, “ ‘Champika’ means Princess and that is how I desire to be treated. When I was modelling I got an opportunity to meet Fathima Vijay Antony ma’am through a common contact and i attended the auditions for ‘Annadurai’. I was literally over the moon when I was ultimately selected because Vijay Antony Sir’s movies are always solid in content with a lot of scope for performance. It was such a delight and great experience to work with Vijay Antony sir. I learnt a lot from him. Director Srinivasan gave me a lot of freedom to express myself in my character named ‘Revathy”. which has lovely scenes, song and plenty of scope to perform. I would like to emulate Sridevi madam for her ‘Style’, Nayanthara Madam for her ‘Screen presence’ and Trisha Madam for her ‘Consistency’, and Aishwarya Bachan madam for the way she carries herself . ‘Annadurai’ is releasing on November 30th and I am excited as well as nervous but very confident that Tamil cinema audience will appreciate and enjoy ‘Annadurai’ very much “.
