Certain roles are taboo for heroines. Like that of a hooker. So, when Sneha played the role, quite removed from soft demure roles, in the film Pudupettai, eyebrows were raised. But the actress got her share of applause for her guts to perform it, and well too. Now it Sangeetha who is playing a prostitute in her new film. The actress, who, after her bold portrayal of a widow who tries to seduce her young brother-in-law in Uyir, is now all set to play the hooker in Dhanam. Says Sangeetha, “When heroes play negative roles, they get praise. But when an actress tries to do a role with negative shades, she is criticised. Why the double-standards, laments the actress, and rightly too.
