Srushti Dange, hitherto seen in a chirpy and glamorous roles, takes a new avatar of a strong woman in her upcoming flick Kattil. The actress plays Dhanalaxmi, a Madurai based lady who is a mother of two kids in a power packed role in the film directed by Ganesh Babu, who also essays the lead protagonist.
The film revolves around a Kattil (cot), which has seen three generations and the emotional bond shred by the lead pair Ganesh and Srushti towards it.
“I took a deliberate sabbatical and wanted to return with a bang and Kattil happened. Dhanalaxmi is mature and intense character.
Yet, she is subtle. It is a total transformation in terms of looks and characterisation from the films I have done so far.”
Ask her if she has no apprehension acting as the mother of two kids and she replies, “No! Never. It was heart-warming to work in a role, which is beyond your expectations. It is something new for me and will be remembered by people for a long time. When we did the look shoot, even the real mothers of the kids who were present on the studios were appreciating me as I looked my part.”Srushti says that she is taking rehearsals and classes to speak the Madurai dialect as she is keen to dub for herself.
Celebrated and multiple national award winning editor and filmmaker B.Lenin collaborates with Ganesh writing the story, screenplay and dialogues.
