She is ‘Amma’ Paul nowPublished: March 12, 2016
Amala Paul is playing the mother of a teenage girl (14-year-old) in ‘Amma Kanakku’, a film produced by Dhanush. Revathy dons a key role in the flick, which has music by maestro Ilayaraja.
The movie is a remake of Hindi flick ‘Nil Battey Sannata’. But both versions will be hitting the screens simultaneously. And both are helmed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari.
Says Amala, “I did a lot of homework for the movie by meeting mothers of teenage girls. I took inputs from them and moulded my performance accordingly. It is a challenging role and I hope I have done justice to it.”
The actress says when she first told her husband and director Vijay about the role, he had apprehensions. “But he was impressed after listening to the script,” she adds.
Amala says she would sign more such meaty roles in future. “Amma Kanakku is just a beginning,” she signs off.
