The Jeethu Joseph directorial also stars South diva Trisha in the lead
Mohanlal and Durga Krishna
Being a fan who grew up watching Mohanlal movies, meeting him in person and working with him was a dream come true for the Malayalam actress Durga Krishna. In a recent chat with ETimes, the actress opened up about her excitement and experiences working on Mohanlal-Jeethu Joseph’s upcoming movie Ram.
Marking her first role alongside Mohanlal, Durga plays a vital role in Ram, the most-hyped project since Jeethu Joseph and Mohanlal are working together after their iconic film Dhrishyam. The actress was on cloud nine and said she didn’t blink when she met him first. Meeting him was a dream-come-true moment for her and, slowly, she could develop a friendship with the senior actor. “He considers me a little sister,” said the actress excitedly.
Opening up about working with Mohanlal, the actress told the daily that she was worried and tense about pulling off the character. She also talked about how it eventually got better on the sets, and she could learn a lot from him. She said she closely observed how the actor develops a bond with his character, and how he behaves, both as an artist and an individual. The actress concluded by exclaiming the whole experience as a sort of a masterclass.
The Jeethu Joseph directorial also has Trisha in a leading role, and reportedly the team has completed their first schedule. The director had earlier said that they will resume the shoot once the lockdown restrictions are called off, as they have plans to get a larger crew and shoot abroad. The movie also has Indrajith Sukumaran, Adil Hussain and Sai Kumar in supporting roles.
