Lead ladies – test and result
Dec 24, 2006

Not all the lead damsels of Kollywood tasted success in the first instant. Many were given two thumbs down after going through a photo session and a make up test. However, later they were spotted when lady luck smiled at them and managed to grab limelight. Sonia Agarwal, Trisha, and Nayanthara are to name a few in this category.

Sonia Agarwal was rejected after a make up test for the Prabhu Deva starrer Manadai Thirudivittai. The role was bestowed on Gayatri Jeyaram, however Sonia was spotted by Selva Raghavan later for his Kadal Kondein. While Gayatri could not create more than a ripple, Sonia Agarwal went on to grab a place among the topnotch heroines of Tamil cinema.
Nayanthara was turned down after a photo session for Parthiban’s production venture and went back to Kerala cursing her luck. She concentrated her career in Malayalam. However, Kollywood embraced her right after with ‘Aiyya’ when she made her debut with Sharathkumar. The rest is history. Nayan is one of the hot properties of Tamil and Telugu industries these days.

Trisha made a flicker of an appearance in Prashanth – Simran starrer ‘Jodi’ during her modeling days. Kamalini Mukherjee, who made a cameo role in the hit Vetaiyadu Vilayadu, was earlier roped in for ‘Vilayadava’ opposite Nanda. She took the train to Hyderabad when the movie was shelved.
However, none of the above mentioned lead ladies would accept the fact that they have tried their hands in other movies and were turned down before making a grand debut.
