The young South Indian actress Ananya, who has recently shot for
the Malayalam movie Shikar, has impressed her on-screen
father, the megastar Mohanlal. He was so impressed by her daring
acts that he named her as Mollywood"s Vijayashanthi.
Ananya is a budding talent in Mollywood, who has received
appreciation for her work in the Tamil movie Naadodigal. The
actress has reportedly performed a daring stunt in Mohanlal starrer
Shikar and thus impressed him. He was very happy to see
her commitment to her work.
The impressing moment was the climax scene of Shikar, where
Ananya was supposed to hang by a rope from a tree standing inclined
over a hillside. Her on-screen father Mohanlal was to rescue her
from there by risking his life. Mohanlal and the director M.
Padmakumar suggested the scene to be shot with a body double. But
the brave girl Ananya insisted to do the act herself as she thought
it would be a big benefit for the movie.
Ananya completed the shot hanging on the rope until Mohanlal
brought her from there safely. When the cinematographer Manoj
Pillai confirmed the shot, Mohanlal offered her a firm handshake
and gave that big compliment.
