Actress and media manager Radhika Sarathkumar has appreciated Aishwarya Dhanush’s debut directorial venture 3 which hit the screens all over the State and elsewhere last Friday. The film has Dhanush and Shruti Haasan in lead roles and music by debutant music director Anirudh, said to be a close relative of Aishwarya. The film has been well-received by the audiences in its first week.
Radhika appreciated Dhanush’s characterization in the film in particular and drew comparison to one of her costume designers who had worked with her some time back. “I watched the film yesterday and should admit that it had a telling impact on me; personally, I had known an youth who too suffered from the similar kind of illness that Dhanush’s character in the film is shown to be suffereing from.
“Some years back, one of my costume designers got affected by such an illness. He couldn’t come out of it and finally committed suicide. Dhanush’s character in the film reminded me of that youth as I was personally affected by the youth’s mental illness and his subsequent decision to commit suicide. It’s a highly emotional film and Aishwarya deserves all credit for choosing such a script in her maiden film as a director.
“Watched “3”, very intense and sensitive subject,handled with finesse and a fantastic performance by Dhanush ,ash congrats. ,”wrote Radhika on her Twitter page. She also tweeted to Aishwarya Dhanush, “My hairdresser for many years seenu died with the same disease . He used to behave the same way and one fine day hanged self. yr handling of the subject was superb, so proud of u lady god bless”
