Nilmini Thennakoon was a star who received the attention of many fans for her performance at Sri Lanka’s greatest television reality show Hiru Megastars.
She is leading Shakyans team. She shared her experience at Hiru Megastars during a newspaper interview.
Speaking about the reality show she said that she hated such programmes after taking part in one five years ago. But now her ideologies for reality shows have changed after competing with other celebrities at Hiru Megastars.
“Hiru is leading in this work. Nilendra Deshapriya, a director I worked with for a long time, asked me to join it. It was because of him I joined this programme,” she said adding that he was an award winning director.
She stressed that Hiru is the right channel to carry out a quality reality show.
She added that the Chairman of Asia Broadcasting Corporation Private Limited and staff have created the best infrastructure for celebrities to carry out the programme ensuring that its quality is maintained.
“That is a real change.. I like that such superiority is maintained. I have kept a name as an artist and has won many awards. Some ask why I take part in such shows. But that is an artistic work too,” she said.
Nilmini also added that she will leave the country one day. “But it is not today. That day is far away.”
