With 'Doctor 56' the actress is making her comeback in Tamil cinema after a decade

Virata Parvam actress Priya Mani will next be seen in the upcoming sci-fi crime thriller, ‘DR 56’. In a candid conversation with an English Daily, the actress who will be essaying the role of a CBI officer named Priya in the film opened up on why she agreed to do the film. The actress also revealed about performing the action sequences without a body double in the film.
She said, “I agreed to be part of this film, which deals with the medical mafia, for two reasons. When director Rajesh Anand Leela narrated the story to me, he substantiated it with a few clips from real-life incidents, which shocked me. Second, the character of a CBI officer was new to me. A dog travels with me throughout the movie. I am fond of pets, especially dogs, so that was a factor too.”

Speaking about the pan-Indian nature of the film the actress said “Filmmakers are coming out with different kinds of strong content these days. Since DR 56 has a universal subject, the producer Praveen Reddy, who also plays the lead role, opted to release it in multiple languages." The film will hit the big screens on December 9, 2023.

The actress who is returning to Tamil cinema after a long gap of 10 years was asked about the sabbatical to which she funnily replied “I guess you have to ask Tamil filmmakers that. There's another Tamil film, Quotation Gang, that is ready for release. I have movies in other languages (Maidaan with Ajay Devgan) and web series and films made for digital release,” she adds. 

Speaking about Raj and DK directorial critically acclaimed web series ‘Family Man’ the actress said "It reached not only pan-Indian audiences but also got recognition internationally. It was The National Award winner which was totally unexpected. What worked was that the directors not only focused on the protagonist's professional life but on his family life as well. Both were balanced beautifully. Waiting for Family Man 3"

Apart from ‘Doctor 56’, the National award-winning actress will also be seen in Naga Chaitanya’s Custody.
