It has also been a totally different experience for the actress to shoot for the film as it was entirely captured in the Gulf countries. She plays the title role of Gadhama in this film. Her character Aswathy will be seen wearing 'purdah" in the film and it was like total transformation for this 26 year old actress. Kavya says that she felt like she is not free anymore.
Speaking about her experience while shooting the film, Kavya says that it was a fabulous journey since she got the opportunity to work with many Indonesian, Iranian, Arabic and Egyptian artists. Kavya adds that she was lucky to get the script in advance and therefore she could make early preparations for her role.
Director Kamal says that his film Pookalam Varavayi got Kavya 'State Award" and he is expecting many more awards for her role in Gadhama. He is keeping higher hopes for her through this film. According to Kamal, her role in this film is much above the other characters she played till date, so more honors and accolades are expected.
The director says that he found Kavya best suitable for the role in Gadhama and she also did it with total dedication and perfection. He informs that Kavya stopped taking proper food for around 15 days to bring in the kind of suffering her character goes through.
We hope Kavya"s hard work is paid and she receives much more awards in the coming days.
