Bhavana has dismissed rumours that she plans to get married in the near future. “I haven’t yet fully recovered from my father’s unexpected demise; I need time to recover and am not thinking about marriage at all,” asserts Bhavana, the Deepavali actress.
Bhavana has starred in all the four South Indian language films but is presently concentrating mostly in Malayalam and Kannada films. The actress, who debuted in Tamil films as heroine with Mysskin’s Chiththiram Pesudhadi opposite Naren, went on to star in films opposite Ajith, ‘Jayam’ Ravi and Vinay Rai but somehow couldn’t make it to the list of frontline actresses in Tamil.
Balachandran, Bhavana’s father and an assistant cinematographer in Malayalam films, passed away on 24th September. Speaking to a journal recently, Bhavana said “I’m deeply affected by my father’s demise; I still feel my father would be waiting for me at the residence when I return home in the evening. I’m not yet able to travel beyond my father’s memories.
“Thankfully, the crew of Hello Namaste (her upcoming film) are very understanding and even postponed the film’s shoot by 2 weeks after my father’s demise. My dream role in films is to play a male in at least one film. In my younger days, I wanted to become an actress and have become one with the grace of the Almighty.
“I was to get married next year but with my father no more with me, I don’t think I would get married in the next few months. In fact, neither me nor my family members are in any mood to think about my marriage at present,” Bhavana concluded.
