Debuting actress Kalyani of an upcoming film titled Mohana reportedly refused and broke down when she was asked by the director to kiss ‘Mottai’ Rajendran.
Kalyani debuts as heroine opposite ‘Powerstar’ Srinivasan in the film, which is billed as a full-length comedy, and which has ‘Mottai’ Rajendran as the antagonist. Kalyani Nair, who hails from the neighbouring State of Kerala, plays the title role of ‘Mohana’ in the film.
She is a theatre-artist in the film who is loved by local bigwig Rajendran as well as by Srinivasan in the film. R.A. Anand, who made Sevili in the past, is the film’s director who says that the film would be a sure-fire ‘time-pass’ as it narrates Mohana’s tale in a fun-filled manner.
As per the script, Mohana appears in ‘Mottai’ Rajendran’s dreams and kisses him (not on the lips, of course!). However, when the sequence was narrated to her, Kalyani refused and broke down saying that she won’t star in the film. She locked herself up in a room and cried out aloud. It was only after Anand convinced that she didn’t need to star in the ‘kissing’ sequence that Kalyanai came out and shot the sequence.
