Although we saw Elli AvrRam make her debut as the leading lady, we have seen the actress doing more of dance-related characters. However, recently the actress made her Tamil debut in Naane Varuvean alongside Dhanush and her role in the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Goodbye was also being highly appreciated. In a recent interview with News18, the actress spoke about how her journey progressed from being a dancer to sharing screen space with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry.
Speaking about her experience of working with such stalwarts, Elli AvrRam was quoted saying, “The biggest takeaway is that despite being so big, they are both so simple and humble. No attitude, never making you feel intimidated or unseen. Both allowed me to express my opinion and thoughts, which I truly appreciate. The other thing is it was a great experience where I got to pick up challenging roles, and I think it’s a time where I also got to grow even more as an actor. Like I said, Amitabh Bachchan sir is a legend and despite that he really is humble and never makes you feel less. On the other hand, I learned a lot from Selvargahvan sir. It was a pleasure to work for him. And even with Dhanush, for that matter, to work with him has also been a great experience. You know, and they also learn from him. I am also grateful to the producers who believed in me and launched me in Tamil industry. It feels amazing that my characters have been loved by the audience as well as the critics.”
Talking further about how her journey progressed to becoming an actor who is being taken seriously, the actress shared, “Yes, there aren’t any restrictions from filmmakers when it comes to casting me in different roles. It happened The Verdict State Vs Nanavati in which I portrayed the character of Sylvia Nanavati. It got me Malang and both these projects changed the perception about me as an actor. But as an outsider especially a foreigner, it hasn’t been an easy ride. There has been a constant struggle to prove that I’m here to be a serious actress and not the girl who only does special dance numbers. But I am happy where I am today, and I am really grateful to all the people who gave me an opportunity to showcase my talent.”
