Abhinaya, the actress who has won over her problems of hearing and speech disorders to star in films, is essaying the lead role in an upcoming film titled as Adida Melam.
Speech-and-hearing impaired Abhinaya, who looks pretty enough to make the cut on any ramp as a model, debuted as an actress in Sasikumar’s 2009 hit film Naadodigal which was directed by Samuthirakani and was produced by Michael Rayappan. Since then, she has starred in more than 20 films in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi and Kannada languages.
Produced by Tattoo Creations and directed by Anbu Stalin, the film has Nischala Krishnan essaying the hero’s role. He is also the producer of the film.
Urvashi, Jayaprakash and Mayilsamy play prominent roles in the film which has music by Abhishek Lawrence. It was earlier titled as Melathalam and was later changed into Adida Melam.
Anbu has also cinematographed the film besides penning the story, screenplay and dialogues and directing the film. “Script of the film is about the heroine’s reluctance to get married as she tells marriage broker (Krishna) to somehow stop the marriage which was being planned.
Her father gives more money to Krishna to convince Abhinaya to agree to the marriage; wait for the film for the climax to unfold,” says Anbu.
