Hansika, who is known for cute bubbly looks, is compared to Kushboo by many. Kushboo was the dream girl of Tamil cinema during her heydays and she was the first actress for whom her fans built a temple in her honor.
This immensely popular actress-turned politician had congratulated Hansika for her performance in Velayutham. And Kushboo also appealed to all her fans not to compare Hansika with her because she is far better in acting than she was in her first few films.
Hansika shared the screen space with Vijay and Genelia in Velayutham directed by Jayam Raja.
