Mahima, who debuted in Tamil films with the Samuthirakani-starrer Saattai last September, has a few projects in Tamil. Looking cute and with confidence brimming in her eyes, she says she is confident of reaching the top in Tamil films in the same manner as many of her State-mates from Kerala had done it in the past.
Mahima dazzled as a school student in the M. Anbazhagan-directed Saattai. In the industry now with the intention of making her presence felt, Mahima has moved to Chennai, though her father is working in Southern Railway in Kerala while her mother works as a teacher.
“I was a very studious student during my school days an topped in all the subjects. I had this passion for acting right from my school days. When I revealed about my wish to become an actress, my mother didn’t object to it. I then shot a profile of mine and through my profile co-ordinator, my photographs reached the hands of Prabhu Solomon and Anbhazhagan. The latter cast me in a significant role in Saattai.
“I’m aware of the competition in Kollywood and am ready to face it. Talent alone helps an actress get stardom and sustain it. I’m for glamour based on the script; however, I won’t take to exposing myself merely to get more film offers. Glamour can only help an actress bag a few films here and there.
“I’m presently starring in Mosakkutty produced by John Max, who made Saattai. I also have Ennamo Nadakkudhu opposite Vijay Vasanth and directed by Rajapandian. Puravi 150 CC is another film in the making which is directed by Venkat. Besides, I have also signed up a Telugu film. I want to do feel-good films and want to star opposite leading heroes. I’m sure Tamil audiences would support and patronize me in the same manner they have loved the likes Asin and Nayanthara,” concludes Mahima.
