A few days to join the sets of Fukri and Anu Sithara is all upbeat. Siddique’s Jaysurya-starrer is a dream-come-true for the young  actress who is all geared to enter the big league. “A film like Fukri will be part of any actor’s wishlist. I can’t believe it turned into reality so soon in my case. The film is a total fun ride and the name of my character is Aliya,” says an excited Anu.

Though she has been in the industry for a couple of years now, her popularity skyrocketed after Happy Wedding, the sleeper hit directed by Omar. “I was confident that the film will be a hit. While we were shooting the entire crew was laughing their heads off. So I was sure that the humour will work out,” she says. Anu is equally excited about her upcoming trilingual Naval Enna Jewel where she plays a young Shweta Menon. “Shot in Iran the film revolves around Arabi kalyanam. I play a class 9 student and I have a no-makeup look in the film,” she says.

Jose, the hero of the film, is in search of a homely and docile bride. He stumbles upon Linda’s photograph and decides she is the one,” she explains the story premise. While  she has done brief roles in Anarkali and Oru Indian Pranayakatha, Anu made her Kollywood debut with Thimiru 2 starring Vishal in the lead.

“Presently I am shooting for my second Tamil film titled Pothu Nalan Karuthi. In the beginning I was a little uneasy with the language. Thimiru 2 had very long dialogues and I had a hard-time memorising and delivering the lines. But when I joined my second film I was pretty comfortable with that part,” she says.  

An alumni of Kalamandalam, Anu says she has danced her way to silver screen. “I am basically a dancer,” says the actress who runs a dance school at her hometown Wayanad. “Dancing is a passion I can’t forgo. It’s an integral part of my life and it has helped me immensely in carving out my film career,” she signs off.
