Actor Kavya Madhavan is yet again in the limelight, not as one of the most loved actors of Malayalis, but as a writer. A memoir by actor Kavya Madhavan, titled Kathayil Alpam Kavyam, was released by writer Subhash Chandran at the KP Kesavamenon Hall here on Friday.
The memoir gives a glimpse into the childhood memories of the actor. It also includes experiences of her school days and in the film industry.
The book was handed over to scriptwriter Deedi Damodaran by Subhash Chandran. Though the guest of honour, Punathil Kunhabdulla, wasn’t able to attend the function, a message from him was read out at the function.
Deedi called Kavya ‘a disguised feminist’ and said: “Kavya is a talented girl who tactfully kept her feminist ideologies in disguise behind her smile. She is a warrior who has faced all the atrocities of life with a smile.”
Kavya said that Kathayil Alpam Kavyam is about her memories. “Whatever is in this book are my memories, things which I cherish in my life. It’s about my experiences at my home in Neeleshwaram and some wonderful people who have touched my life,” she said.
