Priya Anand on Kayamkulam Kochunni co-stars: Both Mohanlal, Nivin Pauly are amazing, natural actors

Priya Anand is one of the very few actresses who worked in all major film industries across India. “I quickly learn new languages and it has been a big plus in my journey so far”, said Priya who is currently busy shooting for her upcoming Kannada film.

Besides the language factor, the actress feels that the filmmaking process remains the same in all the industries. “For me, there wasn't much of a difference in going into Bollywood as most of the technicians are from the South”, she said.Known for choosing content-driven films, Priya says Kayamkulam Kochunni is a very special film for her. “Kayamkulam Kochunni is a very special film for me. I have always wanted to be a part of a period film so, I feel happy to be associated with Kayamkulam Kochunni, which is a well-researched script. Kochunni is a character that most people are familiar with because of Amarchitra Katha”, said the Ethir Neechal actress.

Caste discrimination comes as a driving factor between Nivin Pauly and Priya’s relationship in Kayamkulam Kochunni but the actress said that it wasn’t tough for her to understand the practice. “Kayamkulam Kochunni is a true story and it has things that actually happened in history. I've travelled the world and love experiencing new cultures so it's not very difficult to understand human experiences”, said Priya.

In Kayamkulam Kochunni, Priya’s character required minimal makeup and unlike the routine commercial films, the costumes isn'y glitzy. So, when asked whether she had any apprehension to sport a realistic look, the actress says, “There was absolutely no apprehension to play Janaki and be a part of this project. The team has invested a lot of effort and researched for the project. Further, I’m not someone who prefers to wear loud costumes in my films”.

Priya also heaped praise on her director Rosshan Andrrews, “Rosshan is an amazing director to work with because he really knows what each character should do and is specific about their performances. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and it was a great learning process”.

The Vai Raja Vai actress said that one common thing about Mohanlal and Nivin is that both are great performers. “What Lal sir and Nivin have in common is that they are amazing actors and very natural. Though Kayamkulam Kochunni is a grand film, the expectations are skyrocketed with Lal sir’s addition”, said Priya.

Today, Malayalam film industry is producing some of the finest films in India and the recent National Award winners list speaks volumes about the number of genuine talents from Mollywood. Talking about the Malayalam film industry and the audience, Priya said: “The biggest difference from other film industries and Malayalam cinema is the expectations from the directors and the audience. They do not entertain and encourage non-performers based just on their market. The films being made are very realistic and authentic. I have tremendous respect for them in this aspect”.
