Abhinaya plays a surprise lead to her favorite Surya in 7aam Arivu. A.R.Murugadas,"I needed a divine face, she's like an angel and she fits the bill perfectly moreover the Tamil audiences are very fond of her; Also she had very good appreciation from the Telugu people for her stunning performance in Sambho Siva Sambo," says the director.
Interestingly, her father played the role of a security officer in Stalin the movie and one day he walked into his office along with Abhinaya. It was then he'd come to know that she was a special child. He spoke to her for 45 minutes and couldn't forget her for two weeks. After Ghajini he drafted a story for Surya and he required a character and immediately thought of her. The director says that all of us speak with our mouth but Abhinaya uses every part of her body to communicate, she is so sharp that her brilliance is on par with that of 100 people in his unit.
"One day she came upto me with a wrapped gift. I asked her what it was and she replied there was a bomb in it and made the sound of a bomb and laughed aloud. I went home and opened it, I found a beautiful coffee mug with a picture of hers on it and the words..thank you anna. Usually heroines address me as Sir but she calling me anna really touched me." AR Murugadas recollected.
Just not looks and performance, Abhinaya endears herself to many with her naughtiness. During gaps in the shooting she imitates Suriya, dances like Karthi, imitates the director and a lot more people adds Murugadoss. He is all set to direct Akshay Kumar and Asin in producer Vipul Shah's film after 7aam Arivu's release.
