THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: After a gap of six months, actor Manju Warrier returned to meet students of Government Higher Secondary School for Girls, Cotton Hill, in the capital, where a major portion of her latest film ‘Udaharanam Sujatha’ was shot.
The actress and the crew members of the film were given a rousing welcome by the students and teachers when they arrived at the school on Tuesday afternoon. School principal Sheeja P V welcomed the actor and the crew members. Addressing the students, Manju recalled fond memories of the one-month-long shoot in the school.
“I am sure all of you have ambitions. ‘Udaharanam Sujatha’ shows how important it is in life to have dreams and ambitions. It also deals with the relationship between a mother and daughter,” Maju told the gathering.
The film was shot in the school during the summer vacation in April-May. “Some of you along with your teachers have acted in the movie. I too had a wonderful experience during the shoot,” Manju said.
The actor also inquired how many students found Mathematics a hard nut to crack. When many hands went up, Manju said Mathematics will become an interesting subject if one watches her movie. She urged all students who have not seen the movie to go watch it with their family members.
The movie’s director ‘Phantom’ Praveen recalled how he, as a debutant director, had many fears and anxieties about the movie when the shoot began. But the one-month shoot in the campus was a pleasant experience for the entire crew, he added. Actor and co-producer of the movie Joju George, co-producer Martin Prakkatt, principal headmistress Jaseela A R and PTA president R Pradeep Kumar were among those present. The principals presented a memento on behalf of the school to Manju.
