I always wanted to be an actress. I completed my graduation from Christ University in Bangalore, where I had studied theatre for one year. Though I was not much into theatre, I was always into dance and music. What about your Kerala connection? My father is from Thrissur and my mother is from Maharashtra. But we are based in Pondicherry. I came to Maharashtra for the film, and now I have stayed back as I am getting more work. He lives in Maharashtra and is familiar with the Marathi culture.
How about your role in the movie? I am the protagonist Manasi and the movie is about her journey from her draught-stricken village to Mumbai. She comes with her farmer husband in search of a better life, or one can say, in search of rain. Though she finds rain in the city, her life takes unpleasant turns which makes her life draught in symbolic terms. It is a strong character, and to get such a role on debut is a big thing. Language was a big challenge to me, but the script was so fleshed out and there was so much to do.
There were so many shades and transformations to it and I am blessed to get such a role. What is your take on regional films? Best regional films in India come from Malayalam and Marathi. Do you have any plans to venture into Mollywood? I would love to. It is in my bucket list. Malayalam cinema is making the most sensible films in terms of content. But the biggest challenge for me is the language. I can understand Malayalam easily but I find it tough to speak.
I need to brush up my speaking skills first. I had faced the difficulty in Marathi too. But I am glad that I myself could lend my own voice to the movie.
