Following the raving success of 'Peranbu', Anjali has been a strong player in the South Indian film industry for 12 years since her debut with director Ram's 'Kattradhu Tamizh' in 2007. 'Peranbu' is her 47th release, and while she has mostly done Tamil movies, she has done a handful in Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam.
In an interview, she said, “I'm more inclined towards strong performance oriented films but not all films are like that. I tend to take up commercial films hence, but make sure that even those films have a strong part for me.” She also spoke in length about her co-actors in 'Peranbu', Mammootty and child actor Sadhana, and director Ram. “I didn't realise it was a big opportunity to work with Mammootty sir until I got into the sets. I don't feel anything very special easily and keep my expectations low, but when I got into the set and saw him up close, watch him perform next to me, I feel really great.”
Also speaking about his peformance, she said, “He delivers every shot perfectly. When he is performing you won't notice certain things he does but when seeing them in the dubbing suite, I found that every small expression of his speaks a lot which I admired a lot.”
