Shammu won the best supporting actress at the filmfare for her role in Prakashraj starring Kachivaram, and interestingly in all her flicks till current Mayilu she plays a role totally incontrast to her real life style.
Talking on her her role in Prakash Raj’s Mayilu which as supposed to be her debut as she had signed this movie even before Kanchivaram ,Shammu says,
” I play a typical village girl from Madurai who falls in love with a member of the Kodangi tribe, played by debutant Shri. Mayilu is someone who always likes things to go her way. It was great to team up with Prakash Raj sir again after Kanchivaram, although he was only the producer of the film. ”
“Jeevan of Gnabagangal fame is the director for this project. He is an extremely talented filmmaker and very hardworking. He was the key in finishing the project in 30-45 days, and all of this, in a single schedule!,”
As an additional bonus Shammu’s sister would be seen playing her younger version in this film.
