Tuticorin (Tamil Nadu), Sep 7 (IANS) Fans are constructing a temple for top Tamil actress Namitha in Tirunelveli district and she says she wouldn't mind more shrines built in her honour.
'This state already has a temple for Khushboo. Fans can go ahead and build more temples for me. I'm a secular person, so my temple too should be open to all religions,' Namitha said at the inauguration of a jewellery store here.
'I would also like people to help financially weak students in their quest for education,' added the actress.
The actress scotched rumours about her political career saying: 'My only interest other than acting is in the field of sports,' she said.
Born on May 10, 1980 in Surat, Gujarat, Namitha is a rage in the south Indian film industry due to her steamy roles in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam films.
She is the second actress to have a temple in her name in Tirunelveli, which is 600 km from Chennai.
The first was Khushboo who had a temple dedicated to her in Tirunelveli but it was demolished following her remarks on premarital sex.ALSO READ: Richa Chadha to receive the French Arts award, joins SRK and Aishwarya Rai in honour roll
