Aishwarya Rajesh is on a roll after a fabulous 2018 in which she had well received, highly successful films like Kanaa, Vada Chennai and Chekka Chivantha Vaanam. She is busy collecting all the awards already for Kanaa, and is a strong contender for the big ones like the National Award and Filmfare too. She has just been picked as the Most Desirable Woman of 2018 by the Chennai Times for her tremendous run in 2018 and her ever increasing credibility and popularity. In a related interview to the daily after getting this title, Aishwarya said that according to her, Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi were the most desirable actors. She also mentioned Trisha for her longevity and managing to do a film like ’96' after almost 18 years in the field. Excerpts below,
“I admire Nayanthara a lot. She has done so many films and has become an inspiration for people like me to do female-centric projects. She has opened up the market for us. Nayan presents herself so well on screen. She can rock the sari look and do the glam stuff too with ease. Her performance surprises us each time.
When it comes to Vijay Sethupathi, it is different. I met him during Rummy when he was an upcoming actor. He has managed to stay the same even after scaling heights as a star actor. Forget his built, he manages to impress everyone with his performance and creates magic on screen. He broke the norm that heroes should look fit. And, he is a nice human being too.”
