While most heroines are working hard to learn Tamil so that they could bag bigger roles in Kollywood, Amyra Dastur is glad she doesn’t understand the language yet. And, there is a reason why she feels that way.

“Working and keeping up with the comedic timing of an ace actor like Santhanam is very tough. I memorize my lines and try to keep a serious face all the time. If I would have been fluent in Tamil, it would have been really difficult to not laugh at his jokes. I am already going through multiple retakes and not knowing the language is helpful at least for now,” she chuckles.

Santhanam and Amyra Dastur share screen space in Odi Odi Uzhaikkanum, an upcoming comedic entertainer.
