How’s your latest TV show “Sith Giman Hala”?
Tell you the truth I really enjoy conducting that program, after all it is a great merit to help healing one’s sorrow even by a single word or two.
Do you act targeting awards?
Most of the tele dramas I have acted was awarded many a times and even if I appear less in cinema almost all of them were awarded or nominated for awards. My last film was Udayakantha’s ‘Le kiri kandulu’ for which I became the best actress in ‘Sarasaviya’ film awards. It’s sad to see that Udaya aiyya left the tele drama field because I really like to do a character under him once again.
Once Dananjaya said you were one of the best actresses in Sri Lanka.
