Kochi: Every year, Mollywood churns out a number of fresh faces. Model-turned-actress Aditi Ravi is making her Mollywood debut in Saji Surendran’s Angry Babies. Gorgeous Aditi has already bagged two films even before the release of her first one. One is Vishnuprasad’s Beware of Dogs, and the other, Ayyappa Swaroop and Shahaladharan Sashidhar’s Third World Boys.
The pretty actress is all excited about her role as Maria, a model coordinator and best friend of Anup Menon in Angry Babies. The film will hit the screens mid-May this year. “Being an actress is a dream come true,” smiles an excited Aditi. “My first shot for this film was a ride on a scooty through the Red Street in Mumbai, where Anup chettan sits behind me. It was very challenging as the director wanted me to do it in one take. I was very nervous but I was happy seeing the end result.”
The excited young woman chatters non-stop about her first experience in front of the arc lights. “Bhavana chechi was very supportive; especially the way she used to advise me to carry myself was really admirable. The entire team shared a good rapport,” she adds.
In her second film Third World Boys, she is cast with Sreenath Basi and Balu Varghese. “It is a youth story that happens in a day. It was fun shooting and acting in it. I enjoy acting; it is my passion.”
The lovely lass plays the lead in Beware of Dogs. “I am paired with Chumma fame Wilson Joseph in the film. My character Teena is a very insecure girl friend. It was really exciting to enact.”
Aditi has other reasons to be on cloud nine — the album, titled Yellow, directed by Siddharth Menon of Thaikkudam Bridge. “The song sung by Shreya Ghoshal for Siddharth is beyond words. I cannot believe she has sung for me, isn’t that incredibly thrilling?” asks Aditi.
