Was Lavanya inspired by Sharwanand?
Very rarely do actress give any credit to a person who inspired her to join films but in the case of Lavanya Tripathi she gave credit to Sharwanand. It was most likely that the film Engeyum Eppodhum had impressed her. She says she said ‘yes’ as soon as she heard the story. He asked her whether she would accept a role in his next film to be directed by Chandra Mohan. The director and actor had described the role to her and she was immediately enthusiastic about it. This Dehradun born actress will be playing a college going girl in this film. Come to think of it this will be the most glamorous role that she has accepted as normally she is seen as the chudidar clad simple village girl. This time she will be seen in tight fitting short tops and everything else. The film promises to be a commercial entertainer which is the best type of film for a new comer. There will be time enough later when she can start doing roles to satisfy her creative sensibility.
