She is a known name in the Kollywood circuit and now the doe-eyed lass with the beautiful smile are stepping into Mollywood through the Sugeeth directed film, Three Dots. Though she had been receiving Mollywood offers, Janani decided on joining the cast of Three Dots because of a very sound reason. She says, “I heard the script and the screenplay, and thought it was a very different movie, though I say this at the risk of sounding clichéd. Moreover, I have also watched Sugeeth’s earlier film, Ordinary, and was highly impressed. I thought it was a brilliant effort!”
Three Dots has a lineup of talented actors like Prathap Pothen, Kunchacko Boban, Biju Menon and Narain. The story is of three convicts who meet in jail and about how their life changes and they start life afresh. Janani debuted in Kollywood with the Bala directed Avan Ivan, starring Arya and Vishal, and later with Srikanth in Paagan.
Asked if she has watched a lot of Malayalam films, she says, “I should not be saying this, but no; I plan to remedy that by seeing more films hereafter. I have to learn the language, so I need to see more films.”
Janani has often been applauded by even hardcore critics for her flawless diction in her Tamil films, and she does all the dubbing herself. So, will she continue with that in her Malayalam film too? Janani smiles, “I would love to dub in my own voice but I am skeptical about the Malayalam slang. I can understand the language, but I cannot speak yet.”
Janani plans to concentrate on her Malayalam film career for the next two months, and will be pursuing her Tamil offers only after January. Asked about her interest in continuing with Mollywood films, she says, “Let me do this one movie and see how it goes. I will decide after that.”
Janani had visited Kerala during one of her school excursions and has some lovely memories of the trip. She gushes, “I had been to Munnar, and no wonder, Kerala is called God’s Own Country! It is so beautiful and green.” Her school trip to the state capital too was unforgettable for a reason. She reveals, “All of us students had gone to the Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple wearing jeans and were in for a shock when they asked us to change into the traditional attire to enter the temple, which we did.”
Meanwhile, director Sugeeth adds that the three dots in the film can also be related to the past represented by Prathap Pothen, the present by Biju Menon and future by Kunchacko Boban. Narain will essay the role of a psychologist in the film which will also have Aishwarya Devan and Sreedhanya in prominent roles.
