She is mini screen’s sweetheart and is set to repeat the magic in big screen too. The effervescent Rimi Tomy, who charmed her way into Malayali hearts, is giving acting a second try. She will soon be seen playing the lead lady in ‘Thinkal Muthal Velli Varae’, a comedy drama directed by Kannan Thamarakulam.

Rimi, who made her debut in Anchu Sundarikal, a love anthology, had then  declared that acting was really not her thing but now has altered her plans.

It was exactly why I was apprehensive when the director of ‘Thinkal Muthal Velli Varae’ approached me with the subject. But, then he and actor Jayaram were pretty confident that I would fit the bill. That’s when I thought why not give it a try,” says Rimi Tomy. “In fact, I told the director that if he is so confident, then it is on him to make me act,” says Rimi.

Rimi will play Pushpavalli a serial-addicted wife of Jayaram, a soap writer, in the family movie.

“One reason I chose to play Pushpavalli is that she is a jovial and funny person. And, it is the same reason why people, including the director, were confident that I could handle it,” says the singer-turned-anchor who has been getting offers in movies for some time.

In her usual tongue-in-cheek style, Rimi adds that she, however, loves to sing and run around trees. “This is one particular thing I am always fond of, enacting singing around trees. But, it is a disappointment that there is no such thing in Thinkal Muthal Velli Varae,” laughs Rimi Tomy.

She may or may not click as an actor, but Rimi says she is always a singer.

“In no way acting or anchoring is taking my attention off singing. Even if I venture into acting, I would always love to be known as Rimi Tomy, the singer,” she says. Rightfully, her musical graph is still steady. “Besides, the hit ‘Konji konji’ ‘Avataram’, I sang for a number of movies, including Villaliveeran and Mailanji Monjulla Veedu. So, music is always my first priority,” says Rimi.

But, can she repeat her winning act? “I have no expectations or prejudices. Let us see how people respond. Right now, I am waiting for the movie to begin,” signs off Rimi.
