Sathriyan - A family entertainer

Manjima Mohan, the bubbly actress is all set for her next Tamil release ‘Sathriyan’ with Vikram Prabhu.

Though Manjima has many projects, her films are getting delayed. In fact, her first Tami film ‘Achcham Yenbathu Madamaiyada’ was in cans for a long time and now Sathriyan was also in post production for nearly five months “I don’t bother much about delays. After AYM, I’ve come to terms that everything happens at the right time. Yes, Sathriyan also got delayed but I know that the film has come out well”, says Manjima.

In Sathriyan, Manjima plays a college going girl ‘Niranchana’. “Niranjana is bold, straightforward and fearless but in real life, I’m not that fearless. It took some time to understand the characterization of Niranjana, I never went to college with ‘pottu’ and ‘poo’”, smiles Manjima.

Talking about Vikram Prabhu, Manjima says “Though Vikram is coming from a big family, he is sweet, simple and wonderful human being”. Just when Manjima explains her experience in working with Vikram, someone knocks the door and there enters Prabhu who came to wish the actress on Sathriyan release.Vikram Prabhu’s wife Ujjaini also visited Manjima to wish her on the release.

Looking back, you worked with actors including STR, Udhayanidhi, Vikram Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya hailing from big families. “Yes, but all are down to earth and humble, they are wonderful costars. It’s a big blessing to work with such good people”, says Manjima.

Manjima’s one more film ‘Ippadai Vellum’ with Udhayanidhi is also getting ready and her look was different from her previous films…”My character in the film little modern but the look is similar to AYM. I try to be different in each and every film”, explains the actress.

Manjima has now shed a lot of weight, the actress says “There is no pressure from fans but some directors want me to shed weight and a few others want me to maintain the same physique. I think we should work based on the characters come in our way but now, I’m working out to be healthy and it feels good, can wear what we want”.

Apart from Ippadai Vellum and Sathriyan, Manjima has signed a film with Vishnu Vishal and she is also in talks for a couple of projects but things are yet to be finalized.
