Producer Geetha Kailasam, the woman behind several successful projects under the popular Minbimbangal production house (Home banner of the late ace director K Balachander) has forayed into films. She will be making her acting debut with Ganesh Babu’s Kattil.
Talking about Kattil, she says, “When Ganesh Babu, the director told me the script, I was immediately drawn towards it. Kattil (cot), revolves around an antique cot in a village that is one of the most precious possessions of a family. The characters revolve around it and there is a lot of emotions and sentiment in the story.” Geetha reveals to us that not even once she has discussed her passion for acting with her father-in-law K Balachander.
“He was happy that I was able to juggle between family and my profession. Once I had written a poem and showed it to him. He wrote a note and said, ‘It is nice that you managed to write this wonderful poem amid your busy schedule. We have never discussed acting. In the last six years I forayed into theatre plays and that is when my passion was reignited,” she concludes.
