It’s perhaps for the first time you get to see a teaser exclusively dedicated to the lead lady. And rightfully so, its charm and novelty has created quite a buzz leaving Anu Sithara a happy girl. Moreover, she has two releases hitting the marquee next week, and the pretty actress on a high.

“I am really excited about the way my intro in Ramante Edenthottam was  accepted, the film along with Achayans will hit the screens on May 12,” she says.  

The 56-second video shows the world of Malini, her character in Ramante Edenthottam. “Malini is a quintessential village girl who relocates to a metro. She runs a dance school there and during a vacation she visits Eden. It’s there she meets Raman falls in love. The film is all about how their relationship changes their lives,” she says.

Anu calls the Kunchako-starrer a mature romance and the actress adds she was quite comfortable with her screen age. “It’s for the first time I am doing such a character. But the director and DOP gave me a solid brief on Malini, and yes there is much scope for performance.” Anu says at first she was a little tensed sharing the screen with Kunchako Boban, who plays the title  role. “First takes were all combination scenes and I was scared. But he turned out to be a kind and helpful co-actor. He was ready to repeat takes with me and taught me many technical aspects.”

Anu first fell in love with Malini when Ranjith Sankar told her it’s a dancer role. “Malini is a dancer and dance teacher, just like me. She is not a city-bred girl and loves nature. I still live in Wayanad and it’s one aspect I could easily relate to. Then its’ basically a family movie discussing a beautiful theme,” she adds.
In Achayans she plays Prayaga, whom she calls the first modern avatar in her career. “I play Amala Paul’s best friend in the multi-starrer and she is  definitely a break from my cute, homely heroines,” says Anu who also has  some more films lined up for release. “Currently I am busy with Jayasurya’s Captain, and there are a couple of others in various stages of production,” she winds up.
