Gatta Kusthi, starring Vishnu Vishal, is nearing completion. Aishwarya Lekshmi, who plays the female lead, has finished filming her scenes. The actor announced the news on social media, sharing a video from the previous day's shoot. Aishwarya Lekshmi dances with her co-stars in the video.

Gatta Kusthi, directed by Chella Ayyavu, is billed as a sports drama set in a rural backdrop. Vishnu appears in the film as a Kusthi player. Co-produced by the actor's Vishnu Vishal Studioz and Telugu actor Ravi Teja's RT Team Works, the film will be released in Telugu as Matti Kusthi.

Aishwarya Lekshmi, whose latest release in Tamil was Sai Pallavi's Gargi, will be seen in Arya's Captain. Shakti Soundar Rajan's film is set to be released on September 8. She's also a part of Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan, where she plays Poonguzhali.

With apprehensive parents and a lack of genuine industry contacts, it took Aishwarya Lekshmi some time to establish herself. "My parents, both government officials, are still not happy about me being in films. They don't say anything anymore because they see how happy I am. Their current issue is that I don't have enough time to spend with them," she said, in an interview.

While some actors conduct extensive research and homework for their roles, Aishwarya's acting process entails her developing empathy for her characters. In the chat, she explained that she believes in acting that pervades the subconscious. "Even as a student, I preferred to think about what I was learning rather than simply taking notes. As an actor, I prefer to converse with people to better understand situations that I may not have encountered in real life. For example, to understand how grief works, I spoke with a couple of my friends who had lost loved ones. I noticed a lot of similarities between them, which helped me improve my performance."

Though she dabbles in several languages, Aishwarya feels most at ease in the Malayalam industry. "I understand my limitations. Despite having done a few Tamil films, I'm still terrible at the language. It may sound strange, but I believe my Telugu is superior to my Tamil."
