After being lauded for her performance in Dharmadurai, actress Srushti Dange is pinning hopes on director Adhirooban’s Mupparimanam, which has Shanthanu Bhagyaraj in the lead. The film, which has been in the making for a year, is all set to see the light of day on March 3. Srushti appears confident that this film will make people debate about the content.
Speaking to DC, Srushti says, “Mupparimanam is all about the character — Kathir and Anusha. You can see them growing up on screen and the flick will portray different stages of their life — from their school life to their marriage. Since the character required me to act as a school student and as a grown-up, I had to perform accordingly to show the difference. Director Adhirooban wanted me to look natural and not to take references. He knows what he wants and has extracted the best out of me.”
The Achamindri actor is all praise for the director. “He works in a certain way and does not allow phones on sets. It was emotionally draining, but being on the sets made me realise how my character Anu would behave. Initially, I found it hard, but I could understand his good intentions behind his stern behaviour. The film had a huge impact on me and I am sure teenagers would be able to relate to the content,” she shares.
Srushti elaborates that the movie had impacted her so much that it took her months to come out of her character. “Apart from emotional moments, it is also a commercial thriller. There is no hero and heroine in the movie. Audiences can only see Anu and Kathir on screen!” she concludes.
