Clad in an orange cotton saree, Anumol looks ever so charming as she sits down for a candid chat about her climb to success.
Anumol’s achievement doesn’t rest merely on her role in Agam. With power-packed performances in good films, the actress has ensured her place in Mollywood. Anu plays a prostitute in Shambhu Purushothaman’s Vedivazhipadu. “The role was quite challenging. Most of my scenes were with Murali Gopi and Saiju Kurup. They made me feel at ease during the shoots. I hope I have been able to do justice to the role,” she says.
In Vedivazhipadu, the actress says she could experiment with her acting skills. After playing the wife in David And Goliath, Agam and God For Sale, Anu says she was waiting to break free from her stereotyped roles. “That was an overdose of wife roles!” she laughs. “I was sceptical about my performance in Vedivazhipadu’. But the director, though a debutante, is an expert in the craft. Shambhu clearly explained the character and what he expects out of me for the role,” adds Anumol.
The pretty actress has certain criteria for selecting her films. “I ensure that the role I am playing determines the course of the story in some way. The banner and team with which I am working is important too,” she comments.
Talking about her enchanting looks in cotton sarees, Anu laughs, “I never knew people liked it so much. I have always felt that I can carry sarees perfectly. I love experimenting with contrast shades. I never did any costume rehearsals for Agam. What you see on-screen is what I picked up randomly.”
Marriage on the cards? “Not anytime soon,” she smiles. “Not because I have projects in hand. I haven’t met Mr. Right yet!” she quips as a parting shot.
