Malashri is back in action and after 14 years, the actress has chosen to do a film Gharshane outside her production house. "Every actor at every muhurath says that his or her film is different.
As for me, director Dayal Padmanabhan with whom I will be working for the first time has given me an interesting role," said the actress who further added, "When Dayal narrated the script, I could see the confidence in him and he totally convinced me that this movie will be different from my previous ones. He almost fought to have me in his movie," said Malashri.
The actress maintains though she will have the same action avatar, Gharshane has a different concept altogether. "It is high time we stop telling that the movie has a message. People are aware of what is happening around them.
Gharshane will only present the current scenario of the society and what will be the future in case the same situation exists," she explained.
Incidentally, Malashri still controls the audience with her powerful act as she manages to have a grand opening every time her film releases. "I must say, it is God's gift. Neither was I born as a fighter, nor a dancer but I still have fans who love me for what I do," said Malashri.
She still manages to grab the protagonist's role when careers of few actresses of her age group are almost nearing an end. "Everyone can see the reality in me, in my performance and in my characters. They can see themselves in me. To match it, directors have often given me a variety of roles.
My films have sort of given power to the ladies and the youth. Even though there is no hangover as such from my previous projects, my movies will see me fighting for ladies and try and showcase the problems faced by women from all walks of life," she said.
She does have a lot of fan following. "Men want to see me in a drunken state and women love to see me fighting. In fact, kids have started watching my movies because of all the action sequences.
They feel they are seeing some wrestling shots," she said with a laugh and further added, "For an artiste, there was a time you had a fan club but having grown up kids who love to see you on the screen is extraordinary."
As for her children, Malashri said, "In the beginning, they were scared of my kicks and fights but later they realised it was my job and now they are comfortable with me." The actress would love to work in several projects. "I have finalised four to five movies that will see me in different roles," she signs off.
