Spontaneous transformations into any roles are what it makes an artiste lauded. Of course, the girl-to-next-door looks and easy to recognize as the belle of neighborhood stands out to be yet another demanding attribute. With all such inherent traits, Palak Lalwani has already drawn the attention of spotlights, particularly with her presence in the trailer of Kuppathu Raja. As the film gears up for worldwide release on April 5, the actress opens up on her experience of working in this film.
“While taking up this offer, I had mixed feel of being excited and quite nervous too. Since, the film is set against the local backdrops; I had to be at least closer to the perfection of delivering dialogues in unique slang of Tamil. Thanks to director Baba Bhaskar sir, GV Prakash and others. They were quite patient and helpful over enhancing the verbal quotients,” says Palak Lalwani.
Ask her about her role in the film and she says, “As I mentioned, the story happens across slum region in Chennai and I play one such girl in those neighborhood.” As the trailers and other visual promos signify, it looks like the major conflict in the film is about serious issues. So, how well is her character shaped up in the movie? “When Baba Bhaskar sir narrated me the script, I was really excited with the script and the commercial ingredients with a commendable theme interwoven together. If you’re looking out for my character, I would say that it has been nicely written and it is not something that we call ‘Blink and Miss’. I have a substantive role in Kuppathu Raja and am keeping my fingers crossed that audiences will appreciate my performance.”
Featuring GV Prakash (also music composer for this film), Parthiepan and Palak Lalwani in lead roles, the film has an ensemble star-cast including Yogi Babu, Poonam Bajwa and few more familiar actors. The film is produced by Saravanan M, Saravanan T and Siraj for S Focuss Production. Mahesh Muthuswamy’s cinematography is already highly noticed in the trailer and songs and Praveen KL has worked on editing.
