Is this film an effort to reinvent yourself?
No. I do films on and off. A new director always comes with a fresh approach.

What inspired you to accept this offer?

What kind of a role do you play here?
I play the role of a grandmother who is full of life. She dresses up brightly and wears matching jewelry.

How was it to be part of a young film crew?
It was very nice. They treated me with respect. Once I accept a project I don't argue with the director.

Were you treated with awe on the sets?
Quite professionally. With a lot of respect.

There are two Girishs in the film, Karnad and Acharya. What do you think of them?
