Even before the release of this film she was signed for the female lead role in Osthi which has Simbu in the lead role. When asked Richa Gangopadhyay that who is her best friend among Dhanush and Simbu, she says, “Both of them are my close friends. Dhanush taught me about lot of things in acting while Simbhu patiently taught me the steps in the dancing sequences. Apart from Dhanush and Simbu, there are lots of other actors in my friendship list.”
