Swathi said that it is true that she has denied acting in Malayalam films. Swathi who had acted in Subramaniapuram said, “After Subramaniapuram I got lots of opportunities to act in Malayalam films. I did not accept them since I did not know the language.
I was not able to deny when I was approached to act in the Malayalam film Amen directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery. I was very much interested to don the role of a Malayalam Christian girl in that film. It was a new experience wearing the Kerala traditional Mundu dress. It took one day to pronounce this word itself.
I am continuing to act in Tamil and Telugu films. Lijo had earlier approached me to act in the Malayalam film City Of God but I refused it because it was similar to the role that I had donned in Subramaniapuram. When the director approached me for Amen, he clearly mentioned that I have not donned such a kind of role so far.
I agreed to act because of his motivation. The Malayalam culture surprised me. They are hard workers. The industry people are young and very talented. I was surprised when people there recognized me. I will decide to act in Malayalam films only after seeing the success of Amen.”
