Is something brewing between our action hero Suresh Gopi and the new girl Mamta Mohandas? Mamta the girl who made her debut with Hariharan’s Mayookham and played Mammootty’s sister in Bus Conductor is Gopi’s heroine in his latest film Lanka.
The industry grapevine is abuzz with rumours that they share a great rapport and is always seen together on the sets of Lanka. They make a fine pair and Gopi is some sort of a Professor Higgins for the svelte young girl!
Like Prof Higgins of “Pygmalion”, Suresh Gopi explains to her the nuances of fine acting and how to present herself on screen. And Mamta, the Elisa Dolittle is all admiration for Gopi! Their favourite pastime is to exchanges SMS messages when they are not shooting. Lanka’s highlight are some explicit love scenes which brought Gopi and Mamta even closer to each other.
Lanka is a racy thriller by A.K.Sajan the scriptwriter who makes his debut as director. In the film Gopi plays Sravan, an anti-hero and the film was shot in Colombo, Malpe beaches near Udupi in Mangalore.
Says Suresh Gopi: “In my younger days I never got a chance to do romantic roles like in . I was always branded as an action hero and you will see that my body language has changed drastically in this film as Sravan who is a Casanova”.
