Kalyani Priyadarshan

Actress Kalyani Priyadarshan is on cloud nine for being part of Hero, a Sivakartikeyan starrer, which will mark her Tamil debut. Directed by PS Mithran, the film has Abhay Deol as the antagonist and yes, this film marks the Tamil debut of Abhay too.

The film went on the floors a few months ago and the shooting has been happening at a brisk pace. Kalyani has been working very hard to make sure her debut doesn't go wrong.

In an exclusive interview with International Business Times, the actress said, "I can't wait to talk about the film and my role, but audience have to wait for some more time to know more about the film. I am a huge fan of Sivakartikeyan. When Mithran sir narrated me the script, I was impressed with the story and when I get an opportunity to make my Tamil debut with SK, how would I say no? I am excited and waiting for the release of the film."
