Actress Remya Nambeesan will be seen playing an important role in Tamil film ‘Sathya’ which is a remake of the Telugu hit ‘Kshanam’. Directed by Pradeep Krishnamoorthy, ‘Sathya’ also stars Sibiraj and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar in other lead roles. ‘Kshanam’ was a super hit film in Telugu and the makers of the Tamil remake are expecting the remake to achieve a similar success. Speaking to a leading daily, actress Remya Nambeesan speaks about her role in ‘Sathya’ and the kind of roles that she wants to choose in her career.
Speaking about featuring in a remake, Remya says, “The biggest challenge is that your work will be compared. Of course, it’s good to have a healthy competition. But when I work in a remake, I ensure I don’t imitate what the other actor has done. So, the trick lies in the way you prepare for it. When it comes to Sathya, it was easy for me because the director was clear in his vision and he had full confidence in me.”
Speaking about the kinds of roles she wants to do, Remya says, “I’ve reached a position where I crave good characters and want to enjoy the filmmaking process. I think it was a bold step on my part to have done Chaappa Kurishu in Malayalam years ago. And in Tamil, playing a sensible wife in Sethupathi was a challenge. So, when I choose my scripts, I always look at what I can gain from the experience.” Remya Nambeesan has also sung a song for ‘Sathya’ which is a reprise cover for the film.
