‘No monotony in Mollywood’

Posted by Admin On October - 25 - 2012

You might bump into this unassuming yet beautiful girl at the next-door boutique or a newly opened coffee shop in the city. Robed in simple casuals, a plain tunic, or in a long hobble skirt, Anu Mol continues to sport the casual, bubbly look she was always noted for as the popular VJ, the ‘8pm Anu’.

Her career graph has soared by leaps and bounds ever since this ex-IT professional donned the grease paint. With around ten movies completed in lead roles, Anu is perhaps the only young actor who bagged woman-centric roles back-to-back in the Malayalam cinema.

“I have never experienced monotony in Mollywood,” says a chirpy Anu from the set of David and Goliath, her latest outing in the industry.

Says she: “I am a blessed actress, as I have been doing meaty roles ever since the start of my career. Yet, wise choices have to be made in selecting the roles. In fact, that is the most difficult task – deciding what’s the best role. So, I patiently listen to all the scripts coming my way .” That’s clear from her selection of roles in movies like Akam, Ivan Megharoopan and Chayilyam.

That helped her win the Best New Face of the year 2011 award given by some leading Malayalam TV channels. Even as Aande Londe… number in Ivan Megharoopan topped the chartbusters, not many knew that Anu, as the bashful rustic beauty in mundu and blouse in the song, was considered for last year’s best actress award at the Kerala State Film Awards, and she got through till the final round.

Making a mark in K’town with three Tamil movies, Anu’s forte had been in lending a strong face to the art house cinema, even in her home industry. Not anymore. Finding strong women characters in the commercial cinema is Anu’s new mission. “Be it in God For Sale Bhakthiprasthanam or David and Goliath, I play a highly supporting wife to Kunchako Boban in the former, Boban in the former, and Anoop Menon in the latter.”

Vowing that her foray into commercial cinema will, in no way, detract her from being a part of art house films, she raises a toast to the actors’ golden gospel of “being part of good films,” throughout her acting career.
