What Priyamani can’t travel without


One of the most popular faces of regional cinema, Priyamani is a multilingual star. Some of her notable films include Paruthiveeran, Thirakattha, Golimaar, Raavanan and Chaarulatha. Of course, who can forget her superhit dance number with King Khan in Chennai Express?

This pretty actor loves travelling, and one of her favourite holiday spots in the world is Dubai. “Dubai is like a second home for me and my husband since both of us have families there. We go there very often. In fact, my last holiday was in Dubai,” she says.

Here are her travel essentials:

Beauty matters

Priyamani likes to keep things minimal on her vacations. That said, she does believe in carrying around make-up basics in her bag, always. “I prefer to put make-up only when I am in front of the camera. But of late, I have realised that a little bit of make-up on holidays does go a long way for my skin. It also helps when I am taking pictures or when people come up to take selfies with me. I don’t put on anything heavy on my face, but go for bare essentials such as kajal and a very light foundation,” she states.

But Priyamani does have a neat beauty hack to share. “When I go to cold places, I always carry my moisturiser with me so that my skin doesn’t dry out. But there’s one thing that I always follow when I am at cold places. It’s something that my make-up man from my first film taught me. I always wash my face with ice-cold water in cold places as it helps keep my face fresh for a long time. Usually, we tend to take showers with really hot water in such places, right? But I do that only neck-down; for my face, I always use ice-cold water,” she says.


Talking about her holiday wardrobe, Priyamani says, “My holiday wardrobe depends on the place I am holidaying in. In cold places, all my jackets and sweatshirts finally see the light of the day. So, a leather jacket, a sweatshirt and a pair of boots are a must in cold places. In hot places, my suitcase is filled with short dresses, shorts, t-shirts and sandals.”

“Recently, I have begun to like joggers for my trips. They are super comfortable and I can wear them almost anywhere as long as I team them up well with shirts, jackets and boots. Also, wherever I go, I ensure I pick up more of these comfy pants,” she adds.


Priyamani is not too high on accessories on her holidays. Even when it comes to jewellery, she likes to keep it minimum, except for a pair of earrings. But she does have a soft corner for bags, with backpacks being her current obsession. “I tend to pick any bag I see and like. But handbags are quite inconvenient. That’s why I love small backpacks that you can wear over your shoulder and walk around freely. My husband bought me one such bag in Sydney, from a company called Witchery. And recently, for my birthday, he got me a similar bag from Moschino. These two bags are my current favourites,” she says.


“I carry my iPhone wherever I go. But more than the phone, I am obsessed with phone covers. I keep changing them all the time. But nothing like ‘Hello Kitty’ covers. I am a big superhero fan, so at any given point of time, my phone will either have Batman or Superman, or Avengers on it,” she says.
