In an exclusive conversation with ETimes, Kaniha spoke about working in the film ‘Paappan’ and also shared about her upcoming movies.
‘Paappan’ features Suresh Gopi in the lead role and Kaniha has roped in to play a pivotal role in the film. The film is special to Kaniha in many ways and the first among them is reuniting with filmmaker Joshiy after a decade. “I am working with Sureshettan (Suresh Gopi) and Joshiy sir after 10 years. ‘Christian Brothers’ was the last film we did together. It was nice to reunite with Joshiy sir and Sureshettan. I really enjoyed working with them and have fond memories,” Kaniha shared.
Considering the current pandemic situation, the shoot of ‘Paappan’ is on hold. Speaking about the same Kaniha, shared, “We are yet to finish shooting for ‘Paappan’. We just took a schedule break and I hope we will be resuming the shoot once the COVID situation settles down.”
Kaniha has a bunch of interesting projects in her kitty and one of the most anticipated films ‘Yaadhum Oore Yaavarum Kelir’, a Tamil movie. “The film is helmed by debutant director Venkata Krishna. It has Vijay Sethupathi in the lead role while I play a Srilankan refugee in the film. ‘Yaadhum Oore Yaavarum Kelir’ is something I am really looking forward to, because I thoroughly enjoyed playing the character,” Kaniha reveals while signing off.
Kaniha has also signed for an upcoming film with actor Narain and has a couple of Tamil web series in the pipeline.
