Comedienne Madhumitha, who looks good enough to play a heroine as she has a wide range of emotions in her repertoire, has a pretty face and is reasonably slim, has vowed to herself that she would always remain a comedienne on the lines of Kovai Sarala and the late Manorama.
“I sure got offers to play heroines in films in the initial phase of my career and also after I established myself as a comedienne. However, I firmly turned down those offers as I was determined to make it big as a comedienne. Nowadays, comedy has become an integral part of films and those who come to watch the film are keen to know if the film has comic elements or not. Even full-length comedies are loved by audiences.
“Those who watch films as an outlet from their tense family and office atmosphere should laugh out aloud and films should be made with this in mind. Had I starred in a few films as a heroine, my longevity wouldn’t be as much as it would be it if I remained as a comedienne. Not everybody can become a Savithri and act as a heroine for 20 years.
“If I’m offered a role similar to that of Kovai Sarala’s in Sathi Leelavathi, I’m ready to play the lead role. At the same time, I’m also game for playing negative roles and character-driven roles in films. I want to become the next huge comedienne after Manorama and Kovai Sarala. I want producers to make comediennes appear in the script throughout the film and not in portions.
“I play a normal role in Sundar C’s Hallo Naan Pei Pesuraen and as Karthi’s sister in Gokul’s Kashmora,” concludes ‘Jangiri’ Madhumitha.
