Actress Devayani, who’s played the lead character on several television shows, will soon be seen playing Aditi Menon’s mother in the film Kalavani Maapillai. Director Gandhi Manivasagam reveals why she agreed to the role.
“Tamil films with mother-in-law and son-in-law conflicts always are a hit. The mother-in-law’s character is usually very strong and has a lot of bearing on the script, and Kalavaani Maapillai, which has Dinesh in the lead, is no different. Initially, Devyani did not agree to come on board. But after she heard the full narration, she realized the importance of the role and gave it her nod,” he says.
