Actress Madhu Shalini who paired up with Arya in director Bala’s comic caper ‘Avan Ivan’ and with Siva in the romantic film 16, was not to be seen in any Tamil films after that. The actress is currently acting in a powerful lead role in a short film.
In the Telugu short film ‘Seethavaalokhanam’ that is being directed by Madala Venu, Madhu Shalini acts in the mythological character Seetha, the wife of Lord Rama in the great Indian epic Ramayana. The film’s plot aspires to tell Ramayana from Seetha’r perspective.
Madhu Shalini has revealed in an interview that the film will have Seetha narrating her hardships to Ahalya, another important female character in the epic Ramayana. It is worth recalling that prolific writer of modern Tamil literature Pudhumaipithan had written a short story based on the conversation between Seetha and Ahalya.
Madhu Shalini admits that she was a bit hesitant to take up the offer since most of the dialogues were in Grandhikam that has very tough words to pronounce, but feels happy to have accepted the role. Madhu Shalini is also designing the costumes for her role in the film.
