    Suhasini forays to small screen

    Wednesday, September 08, 2004
    Actress Suhasini Maniratnam, who made a mark in Tamil filmdom will be seen in a new avatar now. She will be anchoring a road show on Raj TV to discover the different facets of women.
    Asked about her decision to move to the small screen, Suhasini says, ‘though I was initially hesitant, I decided to give it a try. After shooting for a couple of episodes, I now feel that this is the best thing to have happened in my life. It was really a great experience to meet people and communicate with them.’
    ‘Though I have acted in over 200 films in various South Indian languages, I have not had any direct contact with the masses. This has been fulfilled with this programme - Ladies Junction for which I go to the villages, to meet people and talk to them. It’s a great feeling to do a programme which explores the talent of people.’
    Further, Suhasini says, ‘when I made a mark as an actress, my interest was to direct movies. When that eventually happened with Indira, my attention turned towards contributing my best for society. Thanks to Ladies Junction, I have fulfilled my social responsibility.’
    On the show, she says this programme would be the perfect platform for women in the State to talk on interesting issues, showcase their talent and have fun. The programme would capture the essence of womanhood in an entertaining and enriching manner.’
    ‘The show would be on air for the next 52 weeks. I had to forfeit an offer to direct a Bollywood movie by Subhash Ghai. However, I have no complaints,’ says the actress-turned-director, who won the national award for best actress in Sindhu Bhairavi. Suhasini, who is married to noted director Maniratnam, says, ‘I should also thank my family, for all the encouragement they have given me in all my endeavors so far.’
    ‘I had ventured to direct a few short films too. But I derive more pleasure in hosting this show rather than working on such short films,’ she says and adds, ‘however, I owe a lot to cinema. It took me to close to the masses and helped me establish a career for myself.’
    About her future aspirations, Suhasini says, ‘I have planned to do a couple of short films besides a full-length feature film in the next couple of years.’
    As of now, Suhasini seems to be relishing her new role.
