Kaniha is a teenager’s mom in her next
Kaniha’s role as a loving mother in Ranjith’s Spirit had brought tears to the eyes of Malayali audiences. The actress will next be seen in the role of the mother of a teenager in 10 Kalpanakal, by editor-turned-director Don Max .
“The crime thriller has me playing Anoop Menon’s wife, Sarah. She is a typical Christian wife similar to my character Daisy in Bhagyadevatha. She wears pretty cotton saris and has a simple look. But while enacting the role, what I realised is that sometimes such a role can also get challenging. I had to look as natural as I could,” says Kaniha.
The Pazhassiraja actress says that playing Sarah was a totally different experience. “I have a 15-year-old child in this movie played by Shebin Benson. The movie cuts between sequences in the past and the present. So I enjoyed playing different phases of motherhood and marital life,” she says. Acting alongside Anoop Menon was something she has been looking forward to, says Kaniha. “I was supposed to work in a few other projects with Anoopettan but unfortunately none of them took off. This time, when I heard the script, I felt I should not miss it. The script is the true hero of this movie,” she signs off.
