Bhavana is doing glamorous roles in Telugu and occasionally shows glamour in Tamil but back home, she still remains the girl-next-door. In her next film titled Thadha she does a totally deglamorised role as Srikutty with Biju Menon as her dad!
Biju Menon plays the role of a 60-year-old man Sudhakaran and Bhavana plays his daughter who gets involved with a film unit who comes to the village for shooting. Their peaceful life takes a twist and what happens in the end forms the crux of the story. The cast also has Vijayaraghavan, Vijay Menon and Ramya Venogopal.
The film directed by Biju C.Kannan tells the story of a father and daughter and is set in village milieu. At present Thadha is the only film Bhavana is doing in Malayalam. She is doing three films in Tamil and two in Telugu.
