The First Factor I Requested After The Narration Was ‘Why Me?’: Keerthy Suresh


On this interview with Ramya Subramanian, actress Keerthy Suresh talks about her upcoming movie Saani Kaayidham, working with director Arun Matheswaran and sharing display screen area with Selvaraghavan in his appearing debut.

Edited excerpts beneath:

Are you able to inform us about your character in Saani Kaayidham?

Ponni is a really uncooked and rugged character. It’s a revenge story. On account of an incident that occurs in her life, she is traumatised and goes on an act of revenge along with her brother. That is the road. How they’re planning to do that, what occurs in between and the way do they end it — that is the gist of the story. Ponni is a really violent individual. She isn’t like that from the start, as a consequence of trauma she turns into somebody with rage. Ponni is extraordinarily stressed. Then again, Selvaraghavan’s character is the alternative, he’s very calm and composed. So, they’re like two extremes.

How was it working with the 2 powerful taskmasters, co-actor Selvaraghavan and director Arun Matheswaran? Did you’ve gotten fixed strain to fulfill each of them?

Arun is wonderful and I really like his imaginative and prescient. His forte is how superbly he could make a movie. He’ll begin with a really small factor, but it surely’ll find yourself as a giant factor. So, when he first narrated the script to me, I used to be blown away. I actually preferred the script. Why me, was my first query. He replied saying ‘’The identical purpose why you might be questioning “why me” is the reply why I would like you’’. He stated he’s not seen me in a job like this earlier than, so that’s the reason he needed me to do it. 

There have been two dangers for me, one, if the viewers will settle for me and second, if I can carry out and pull off the character. I had the identical questions for Mahanati (2018). Arun thinks in a really completely different and quirky means. His method to work may be very completely different. He doesn’t merely come and provides us our dialogues. His photos and movie converse extra, we don’t have to talk a lot additionally. 

So, at any time when we’re speaking additionally, it’s not like dialogue is given to me. It’s one thing you’ll perceive should you merely undergo it as soon as. Throughout our look check, I assumed it’ll solely be the picture that you just’ve seen within the poster however there’s a six-minute single shot originally of the movie, he needed to check that additionally. I feel it was the primary time I acted a scene for a glance check. So, we did it and it got here out superbly. 

We shot an interrogation scene. Then I understood Arun’s fashion. He loves black and white and he has a selected fashion. After the look check, Dhanush sir known as me and stated he’d seen the look check and it was good. He advised me to place my full coronary heart into this mission and vouched for Arun and advised me to observe Rocky (2021). 

I understood the temper from the place Arun was coming. I really feel very comfy working with him as a result of I actually like administrators who go away it to us. Arun likes what I present him and what I improvise. I requested if we might have a tattoo and he stated okay, and we focus on quite a bit. After I signed off, I stated I positively need to do one other movie with him, not simply him, his complete crew; Yamini Yagnamurthy, the DOP and everyone.


What was it like working with a lady DOP?

I feel it’s a unique stage of consolation. I can inform her something. On this movie, she was working. There aren’t any trolleys and fancy pictures in Arun’s movie. So, she needed to carry a Steadicam each time on her shoulder. So, after I would take further takes, I’d really feel horrible, however she handles it. She’s very powerful and sensible. I cherished working along with her.

Inform me extra about working with Selvaraghavan and the primary day you met him.

He’s very quiet. From day one to the top, he was very quiet. He’s very candy and harmless as an individual. On the primary day when he was speaking to me, he spoke about appearing in Mahanati and all and requested me to show him a bit. I used to be like, “Sir, you shouldn’t be saying all of this, we glance as much as you”. I really feel very completely happy about being part of his debut. I’m completely happy I might share display screen area with Selvaraghavan, the actor.

Did director Selvaraghavan ever are available, to perhaps provide help to out or was all of it Arun’s job?

He didn’t say something. Even when he’s listening to Arun, he didn’t say we are able to do it like that or like this. He’ll do no matter Arun says. Any sensible concepts or recommendation, I’m certain he would’ve given however other than that he’d by no means interfered. We had a pleasant journey. Within the movie now we have a matador van, that’s additionally a pleasant character. So, I needed to drive with him. These sequences additionally got here out very good. It’s a van proper,  so at any time when I’m driving, he’d jokingly say his life was in my palms.

Identical to Saani Kaayidham, your lineup is totally distinct throughout languages. What’s your purpose for the subsequent two years? You’ve completed a wide range of roles, acted with large heroes, and received a nationwide award. So, what’s your guidelines?

I all the time say “I’m going in a movement”. After a degree, we begin aspiring and wishing for extra, however my solely purpose is to maintain driving, I really feel I simply began although it’s been over 9 years. So, I really feel there’s much more to do.


Do you’ve gotten a dream character?

I’ve not seemed into such characters, as a result of even the characters I get in my movies are one thing I by no means anticipated for myself. I haven’t completed a personality just like the one I’m doing in my present Mahesh Babu’s movie. Even in my Malayalam movie, I’ve not completed that. So, I’m very pleased with no matter I’m getting. 

We all know we’re going to see a Keerthy Suresh we haven’t seen earlier than, what can we remember earlier than watching Saani Kaayidham?

Don’t preserve something in your thoughts. Watch the movie with a clean thoughts and don’t count on something from the movie. At any time when I watch a movie, I watch it with a clean thoughts whatever the evaluations, so I can have my very own judgement. Equally, don’t suppose an excessive amount of, watch the movie. Truthfully, I can’t say it’s a household movie, however it should join with everybody, each lady as a result of one thing like this will occur to anybody.
