Padmapriya says that she is not a person who acts for money. During a Malayalam shooting in Kerala she spoke to the media, she said,” I am busily acting in Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and Telugu films.
The shooting of the film Pokkesham is over. Now I am currently acting in Irumbu Kottai Murattu Singam. I am donning the role of a village cow boy. This is a first time I am acting with a different costumes and role. I have not agreed to do Tamil films except this one. My call sheet is full till end of this year. It is not truth that I am not cting in Kannada film because the salary is low. If that is the case I wouldn’t be acting in Malayalam films where the salary is very less. I am not a person who acts for money alone. If there is good story and role, money and language is no criteria.”
