My competition is with myself: Keerthy Suresh

Friday 26th June 2015 07:18 EDT

South Indian actress, Keerthi Suresh believes actors cannot be compared because there is something different about each one of them, which is why she competes with none other than herself.
“I’d like to compete with myself. More than comparing with somebody else, I’d prefer comparing my own work from film to film. I believe each actor is versatile and different so you can’t compare them. All I need to worry about is have I done better than my previous film or not,” Keerthy said in an interview.

The actress who already has five projects in hand, awaits the release of her Tamil debut, 'Idhu Enna Maayam'. She is already feeling the pressure, but is happy to be welcomed into the industry even before her first film released. “I have to admit that as much as I’m happy about my career now, I’m slightly scared, too.” She said.

“The entry was, of course, easy, thanks to my parents and their connections, but to sustain is what mattered the most. I always wanted to act, but not because my parents were associated with the industry. Luckily, the offers came to me but not vice versa.”

She is the daughter of yesteryear actress Menaka and well-known Malayalam producer Suresh Kumar and started her career as a child artist in a Malayalam film, 'Pilots'.
