Khanna ventured to Mollywood with the 2017 Mohanlal-starrer Villain. The Prithviraj-starrer Bhramam is her second Malayalam movie
Raashi Khanna, who is gearing up for her second feature in Malayalam in the Prithviraj-starrer Bhramam, said the industry demands more than good looks to survive. She thinks there are many daring actors in the industry who will take up the characters which many in any other industry would not. The 30-year-old actor shared her insights in a recent interview with PTI.
Khanna who has already worked in Tamil and Telugu industries, ventured to Mollywood with the 2017 Mohanlal-starrer Villain. Though she was not sure if she was registered in the industry after her debut, she wanted to tap into the market. She also is of the opinion that in the Malayalam industry, one is only expected to act.
Khanna is glad she got the opportunity to be a part of Bhramam helmed by Ravi K Chandran, and she sees this as a chance to establish herself in Mollywood.
In the adaptation of the Bollywood hit Andhadhun, she essays the role played by Radhika Apte, and thinks that her character is a little mellow, while comparing to Apte’s edgier one. She also added that the remake would feel like an original, as the actors have brought real personas to the characters.
The actor also revealed that she had to fight for dates for the movie, as she was on a busy schedule while Bhramam was offered to her. She seems to be excited to work on the movie, and came through a really hard way to make it possible. She considers herself a compliment that she was selected by Ravi to play Apte’s role.
Backed by AP International and Viacom 18 Studios, Bhramam also features popular actors like Unni Mukundan, Mamta Mohandas and Sudheer Karamana in vital roles. The film will be released on October 7 on Amazon Prime Video.
