Pavina has done movies as Oru Sandhippil, Vengayam and Soozhnilai. Currently she does heroine for movie titled ‘Kanal’. Director Jayakumar requested Pavina to wear shorts for shooting of a duet song.
Pavina seems to have replied ‘I would not wear shorts. If it is required, give me half pants which cover elbows.’ The director seems to have visited numerous shops and spent several thousand for the attire. Out of this, the director was vexed. Until last, Pavina stuck to her decision that she would not expose.
Following this, there was heated argument between director and the actress. The shooting was delayed by 2 hours. After the argument, the director relented and allowed Pavina to wear dress of her choice for the shooting.
Director – hero for the movie Jayakumar said:
‘Present scenario is such that even lead actresses as Anushka, and Tamannaah do glamour. Reason is that youth turn up at theaters in large numbers. As the youth need to be satisfied, directors give extra tinge of glamour to the song sequences. ‘
‘Pavina, who hesitates to do glamour for this movie wore swimming dress for movie ‘Oru Santhippil’. But now she refuses to do glamour. I do not incur any loss by her refusal. Reason is that I make movie relying upon story. I do not rely upon glamour. But, Pavina would lose further chances. She would realize it in course of time.’
