Trisha was blown away by her fans’ reaction when her 18 year old film was screened at a theatre in Hyderabad. The actress stated she is in a great position in the industry all because of the support of her staunch fans. The film which was released with a 4K resolution recorded very good occupancies though there were new releases yesterday. The film was later remade in Tamil in 2005 as Mazhai, Odia as Barsa My Darling, and in Hindi as Baaghi in 2016.
Trisha played the role of a pluviophile named Shailaja, who has a magical connection with rain. The rom-com about star-crossed lovers was a huge hit at the time. It was in theatres for more than 175 days. Trisha was last seen in Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan: I which was loved by the audience and the critics. Her upcoming films include Sathuranga Vettai 2, Ram: Part 1, and The Road.
