When Mahima debuted in Kollywood with Sattai as a schoolgirl, she was a class 12 student. Now, with Triple V Records’ Yennamo Nadakudhu’ (YN), she returns in a more mature avatar. What’s more, she has yet another Tamil flick, Mosakutty, in her kitty. Speaking about her journey to CE, Mahima recounts her transformation to more mature roles.

“I’m a talkative girl in real life. But in this thriller, directed by Rajpandi, I play a matured character of a nurse, as opposed to the schoolgirl in Sattai. So, I was told to tone down my natural playfulness, to add some weight to the character,” says Mahima with a laugh. She adds, “One can say that I have done all the things required from a heroine, like romance, dance and emoting, in this film.”

The actor went through a complete makeover for the role, with lots of trials for her costumes and various hairstyles, before zeroing in on a few. So, will she do glamorous roles in future, now that she’s out of the schoolgirl mode? “I don’t mind being trendy  and wearing modern costumes on screen, but I’m not comfortable with  unnecessary skin show,” she stresses.

Shot mostly in Chennai, Mahima found that she had to do a lot of running around, quite literally. “There were scenes where I had to run amid large crowds and it was quite tiring in the beginning! But the director let me get my bearings and take some rest in between,” she adds with a smile. Vijay Vasanth plays a boy who sticks posters on walls, in this home production. “He’s very down-to-earth and friendly,” she recalls. 

Mahima is happy she has got a meaty role which has importance right till the end. The movie has a song sung by Saranya, who plays Vijay’s mother and the character artiste has also danced in the film to its tune.

About her future projects, Mahima says, “I play a village girl studying in a college, in Mosakutty. It’s a role which required me to showcase my naughty and childlike self, along with an emotional side.” In the meantime, the 19-year-old is busy pursuing BA in Engish Literature from Kasargod. But by the look of things, she certainly has plans to stay put in Kollywood.
