Her styling for Vijay in Mersal has recieved appreciation on social media and she has even been trending at the time of release. Having worked on the Atlee- Vijay project Theri she apparently shares a good bond with the duo and is in synch with thier working style. She reveals, " At first I had got a call for Mersal but I had just conceived so doctors had asked me not to travel for a month. Then after the first few days, I got a call again from Atlee sirs team to join Mersal and style Vijay sir for his uber cool looks. That was a really great feeling that I was really wanted by the team!"
The reticent stylist who also styles for celebs like Akshay Kumar prefers to let her work speak for her, " In the past many stylists and designers have tried to take the credit for the work I've done as I never believed in blowing my own trumpet and I let my work speak for me ! "
She is all praise for Vijay, " It's my bond with Vijay sir that I value a lot and which helps me give my best. He is such a skilled actor . He just moulds himself to any look or costume ! It's a real blessing to work with him and I hope
I continue working with him and keep trying newer and cool trends with him !"
