'There is a lot of scope for performance'

A familiar face in Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu language industries, actor Remya Nambeesan’s Sandalwood entry was delayed by the dearth of a good script and offer from a noteworthy team. Remya says she saw in ‘Style King’ the perfect launchpad, not only because she has been cast opposite Golden Star Ganesh but also because she found her role to be quite unusual. In an interview with Nina C George, Remya shares her experiences of working in the Kannada film industry.

How did you get down to accepting the project?

I found my character to be very intense and one where I play a woman who is emotionally torn between her family and the man she loves. How she struggles to keep the two together, forms the crux of the story. There is a lot of scope for performance. My character is a mix of traditional and modern. It is this combination that also impressed me.  

What is the highlight of the project?
The highlight is definitely Ganesh’s double role. In one he appears as a simple guy and the transformation in the double role is something to watch out for. The script engages the reader at every step and the director PC Shekar has ensured that there’s no room for boredom.

Working with Ganesh...
I am glad that my debut project is with Ganesh. I’ve heard so much about him and finally when I got to act with him, I found him to be supportive. I didn’t feel like I was acting with a stranger. Whenever, I got stuck with the dialogues or wouldn’t understand something, Ganesh would be more than willing to help. In fact, he made my work easier.

How do you handle disappointments and flops?
There’s no room for depression in my life. I never get stuck in a particular issue and snap out of problems very fast. I don’t brood over the outcome of a movie. I give every project my best shot and forget about the result.

Do you come down to Bengaluru for purposes other than work?
Yes, I have friends and relatives who live there. Since, not many people recognise me as much as they do in Kerala, I can actually walk into any mall or restaurant in Bengaluru. I relax the most when I am in Bengaluru.
