From being a child artiste to becoming a heroine in Malayalam and Tamil films, Sanusha has successfully played many roles with ease. The actress talks about her upcoming film 'Kodiveeran' and her bond with Sasikumar
Sanusha, the child artiste, who played Trisha’s sister in Bheema and Santhanam’s sister in Alex Pandian (2013), is excited about her pivotal role in Sasikumar’s Kodiveeran, releasing on November 30. It’s been a while since she played a lead role the last being Vemal’s Etthan. “Post Etthan, I wanted to do roles which can give me a solid platform in Tamil. Meanwhile, I got good offers in Malayalam. I had to focus on my academics as well. So, my break in Tamil cinema wasn’t something I deliberately planned,” says Sanusha.
Talking about Kodiveeran, she is all smiles and says that the movie’s storyline will create huge appeal for the audience. “When Muthaiya narrated the story, I immediately agreed to do it because of the way the script was etched and due to my characterisation. I play Sasikumar’s sister in the film,” says the actress.
Divulging more about her role, she says, “I play a character called Parvathy, Sasikumar’s sister. You would have seen me playing a naïve girl-next-door role in Etthan. This is again a rustic role, but here my character is naïve but courageous and bubbly. I mediate for the lovers, my brother and the heroine, played by Mahima Nambiar.”
Sanusha says that the movie deals with brother-sister relationship. “Apart from all the fun, the film will have an emotional angle. Kodiveeran will be an example for brothers and sisters. Moreover, from one point in time, Sasikumar and I have started to become more like offscreen siblings. I can happily say that I have found a brother in Sasikumar,” she says.
The movie was a learning experience. “There are actors like Vidharth, Pasupathy and Poorna as well. Everyone made me feel comfortable on the sets. I had a lot to learn from them. All of them pampered me with the famed Madurai cuisine. Sasikumar is an expert when it comes to Madurai food and he kept treating us with varieties of food each day. It was a lot of fun.”
Talking about her upcoming projects, she says, “Now that I have completed my education, I look forward to doing more films in Tamil. I have been briefed about a couple of scripts, but I am yet to decide. It depends on how my role in Kodiveeran is received,” she signs off.
