Hindi movies are happening but want to take my time: Priyamani

NEW DELHI: Barring a cameo in Mani Ratnam’s “Raavan” and a dance number in Shah Rukh Khan’s “Chennai Express”, Priyamani has not been seen in Hindi language projects but that is set to change with the Amazon Prime Video series “The Family Man”.

The actor says it is not that she does not want be a part of Hindi movies and shows but the offers have not been interesting enough.

“I have not done a full-fledged Hindi project but I want to. I have been getting some offers of films. But more than films, I have been getting offers for serials which I have obviously declined. I’m not ready to transform into a serial artiste yet. Movies are happening but I want to take my time,” she said in an interview.

In “The Family Man”, Priyamani appears as Suchitra, the wife of actor Manoj Bajpayee’s character Srikant.

The show, directed by filmmaker duo Raj and DK, follows a middle-class man (Bajpayee) who works for a special cell of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).

While he tries to protect the nation from terrorists, he also has to protect his family from the impact of his secretive, high-pressure, and low paying job.

Priyamani says she accepted the show as she found something ‘substantial’ to the part of Suchitra. (AGENCIES)
