Diary of an Actress


By Prathap

Arguably the dirty picture of the South, Oru Nadigayin Diary is releasing this weekend. It’s about a struggling and up and coming actor and her tribulations to stay in the limelight, Sana Khan plays the movie's female lead. While Sana plays a character inspired by Silk Smitha in the movie, other lead actresses have at some point in their lives played themselves (or as an actor) in movies. Here is the list.

Aishwarya Rai - Perhaps the most loved of all actors who played actor roles is Aishwarya Rai. She was a natural in Iruvar, a role that she let her easy charm take over rather than any hardcore acting.

Gopika - Vellithirai's Gopika played the damsel in distress who marries the wrong guy in her heydays as an actor and lives to regret it.

Trisha - She played an actress, Ambujakshi, in Manmadhan Ambu who is stalked by Major Mannar, played by Kamal. Trisha knew how to play it cool on and off screen and she did it in Manmadhan Ambu.

Nayanthara - She only had a few scenes, more or less a cameo, in Kuselan but Nayan played herself and did it with characteristic ease.

Jyothika - The now-retired Jyothika played herself, as Jo, in the 2005 release Maayavi with Suriya in the lead.

Devayani - Vinnukkum Mannukkum, where she probably met her future husband Rajakumaran, has Devayani playing an actor with whom Vikram is impossibly in love with.
