Surveen then started to open up on the issue she faced with a high profile Tamil director who is also a national award winner. She said that she attended the shift audition in which she did 7 am to 7 pm audition in order to act in the film. After doing that audition, Surveen went back to her home and was little unwell. Suddenly, the director who auditioned her offered to go to Mumbai to take care of her which was completely weird to Surveen.
“The director’s friend spoke to me after that as the director could speak only Tamil. He said to me that the director wants to understand me before working in the film. And then he suddenly said that it will last only till the end of the film. He said that I can stop it once the film is over. I said that it he is knocking on the wrong door and turned down the offer. That film didn’t happen” she said.
Surveen Chawla has acted in Tamil films such as Moondru Per Moondru Kadhal and sequel of Arjun’s Jai Hind.
