Upcoming artiste Gauthami Nair can’t stop gushing about her experience with Mammootty’s son, Dulqar Salman in the youth-packed movie, Second Show.
Gauthami, who is now settled in Ambalapuzha considers herself lucky to be Dulquar’s co-star in her debut movie.
She says, “Getting to act with Dulquar, is indeed a big opportunity for me! I was tense because I had to pair up with Mammootty’s son in the movie, but then I removed that thought completely from my mind and started considering him as my co-star in Dulquar, which was easy for me then.”
In Second Show, she plays the role of a village girl called ‘Geethu’ and certain things that Geethu does changes the life of Lalu (Dulquar).
The petite beauty has lots to express about her experience with her co-stars. “I enjoyed each day and didn’t realise when the shooting got over finally.” She recollects a scene where she had to slap Dulquar several times.
It’s a must-watch movie says the young star, because of the energy-filled young cast and a different storyline altogether. “I am sure that the two-hour movie will entertain the public and will be worth watching,” adds the actor.
Gauthami completed her schooling in Kuwait came down to Kerala to pursue medicine. Following her father’s footstep, Gauthami too wanted to become a doctor but the world of glitz and glamour beckoned her.
“My cousin sent my photos to the associate director of Second Show and I was selected after an audition,” she added. The young girl who does not want to give up her studies for movies is presently doing a correspondence course in literature.
Although settled in Kuwait, Gauthami didn’t face any language problem and is comfortable speaking Malayalam. However, debut director Srinath Rajendran considered her voice a tad unfit for the role of a village girl so, this coupled with her NRI accent meant that the movie had to be dubbed.
About her future plans and her stint in films, Gauthami says wants to wait for the release of Second Show on January 20 before she answers the question. “I want people to see me on the big screen.
I want to hear their comments and then I will decide whether I should take up any other projects or not,” says the actor.
