Actor Aishwarya Rajesh who made a memorable debut in Mollywood with the film 'Jomonte Suvisheshangal' is currently one of the most sought-after actresses in the Tamil film industry.

She was recently seen in 'Farhana', an interesting story about a Muslim woman who dares to step out of her conservative household to work at a call centre. She also played a middle class girl who wins a car as a lottery in the black comedy film 'Soppana Sundari'. The actor, known for her ability to carry an entire film on her shoulders, won appreciation for her ability to do a comic role with equal ease.

Aishwarya, who belongs to a Telugu family and was raised in Chennai, has now revealed why she does very less Malayalam movies, though she played noteworthy roles in films like 'Jomonte Suvisheshangal' and 'Sakhavu.

“Malayalam is a very tough language. I can't speak Malayalam.. It is very difficult to do films without knowing the language. I would love to do more Malayalam films and hope to do more in the future. But for now, language is a hindrance,” explaining the huge time gap between her last Malayalam film.

“I have acted in three Malayalam films, which are yet to be released. One is the Joju George-starrer Pulimada. The other is 'Her'. I have also done a very small role in Tovino Thomas's Ajayante Randam Moshanam,” says the actress, who has several awards to her credit.

Though the actress thoroughly enjoyed doing a comic role in 'Soppana Sundari', she believes it is important to be responsible, while handling comedy. “This is something that I always keep in mind. Even when you are mouthing some hilarious dialogues, you should ensure it is responsible,” said the actress, who added that it is important people be politically correct in films.

“If you think that a certain dialogue or scene is going to hurt the sentiment of a group of people, just decide not to do it. Cinema is a medium, which can influence a lot of people. Films are celebrated these days and people want the film to be watched by all sorts of audience. So it's important that nobody is hurt through a film,” said the actress.
