    She wants meaningful roles

    Monday, March 14, 2005
    She is the latest heartthrob from Malluwood. Even before her debut venture in Tamil could grace theatres, she has offers pouring her way. A perfect start in Kollywood for this actress.

    Renuka Menon, the glam girl from Kerala, says, "I am happy that I am not just getting films in Malayalam and Tamil but also in Telugu and Kannada. I want to do meaningful roles and ensure a long innings."

    Renuka Menon currently is acting opposite Jeyam Ravi in Dass and Bharath in February 14.

    A quick chat with the doe-eyed actress:

    How did you enter filmdom?

    Noted Malayalam director Kamal introduced me to cinema. It was in his Nammal that I made my debut. The movie did well and I had people recognizing me for my good performance. I followed it with movies like Meeravidae Thukkavum Mutuvindae Sopnavu, Freedom, a Telugu movie titled Anandhamayee and a Kannada movie titled News.

    Did your family welcome your decision to enter filmdom?

    But for them I would not have come into filmdom. My father is an advocate in Kerala and my sister is a kathak dancer settled in USA. These days, people's attitude towards film industry has changed a lot. My parents had no hesitation when I got an offer through director Kamal to enter filmdom. I accept movies only after discussing about my role with my parents. I will do nothing that would harm their sentiments.

    How did you bag the role in Dass?

    I got a call from Lakshmi Movie Makers one fine day. After seeing me on a live show in a Malayalam satellite channel they had decided to cast me as heroine in their home production. I immediately accepted the offer, as it involved a popular star like Ravi and a renowned production house.

    Your favorite hobbies?

    I love to do fashion designing, cooking besides taking a long ride in my Scooty. I emerged school-topper in my higher secondary examinations. Now I am pursuing under graduate course in English literature.

    Your aspirations?

    I want to do meaningful films and establish myself as an actress suitable to do any roles. Be it Tamil, Telugu or Malayalam, I want to leave my mark.
