Aashiq Abu is one of the most-prolific directors in Malayalam and his movies have something substantial to offer to the viewers. When she got a call from him, Rimi Tomy could not say no to acting. She is playing the friend of Kavya Madhavan and she is paired up with Tini Tom in the movie. Talking about her role, the singer-turned-actress says, "I play a serious character with no hints of comedy."
Rimi Tomy has been quite successful in hosting TV shows and performing on stage. But she is not very confident about her acting skills. So she told Aashiq Abu to cut off her portions if he finds her not convincing. She says, "Acting is not so easy as hosting a TV show or performing on stage. Even after shooting for the film, she says, "I am still apprehensive."
In the past, many directors had offered guest roles to Rimi Tomy, but she chose not to give it a try. Now, she is eagerly waiting for Anchu Sundarikal to hit theatres. She will consider signing new movies if viewers like her performance and her family supports her. Right now, she has her hands full of offers - singing, stage performances and TV shows.
