Dreams often come true, and for Siddhi Idnani, such was the case. The lead actress in Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu (VTK) discusses her dream of being the 'GVM heroine'.

Speaking about how the offer materialised, Siddhi, says, “Gautham Menon and director Obeli N Krishna (of Pathu Thala-fame) are good friends. I learned that they were looking for a female lead for VTK since I had just concluded a schedule for Sasi sir's Nooru Kodi Vaanavil. I was relaxing around Mumbai at the time Covid was peaking. I flew down on Sasi sir's recommendation.”

Since it was revealed that Siddhi would play the female lead role in VTK, she has acquired a sizable following in Tamil.

Siddhi laughs as she recalls the first day of the shoot. “I was asked to attend an audition for a scene, at a city hotel where the movie was being shot. We were filming the same scene in the evening, and I hesitantly asked Gautham sir if I was a part of VTK. He responded, ‘We already started shooting your portions’.”

She picked up Tamil while filming Nooru Kodi Vaanavil. “Mumbai is where I was born and raised. However, I managed to do a decent job at dubbing!”

How does she feel about being the centre of attention at this moment? “I am here after failures. I won't change as a person as a result of one major success. I won't take that to my head. Failure and success are transient. I'll be who I am.”

Siddhi emphasises the desire to play historical or legendary figures, next. “I read mythology a lot. I like The Palace of the Illusions, and I'm currently reading The Forest of Enchantment. I wish to portray characters like Draupadi and Sita in the future,” she told The New Indian Express.

Given that VTK has a sequel, Siddhi hinted that the second part would be more powerful. Even though a two-part film was not the original plan, according to Siddhi, “everyone thought that the plot seemed like a sort of beginning to something bigger towards the fag end of the film.”
