Mithra-Kurien

Short story writer-turned director, Babu K Vishwanath has just seen the release of his film Kandha last week, after a delay of two years.  The release is reason enough for him to be elated and the director is upbeat enough to start working on his next project now.

But he recalls the hassles he faced during the making of the Karan-starrer Kandha, thanks to his heroine Mithra Kurien of Kaavalan fame. Vishwanath, who has written over 1,000 short stories and was an assistant to Saran, recalls , “Mithra gave me no trouble. But one day she just disappeared from my set without informing me, while the whole unit waited ! She wouldn’t reply to my messages or calls. Finally when I reached her, she said she was on her way to Kerala, to celebrate Onam with her family!” His woes didn’t end there. The heroine was neither present during the climax shoot where she was needed nor during the promotions.

But all that is behind him as he readies for his next flick, Theradiveedhi Thirukannapuram, produced by cameraman Gopinath. The film will be set in the village backdrop of Thanjavur just like Kandha.
