It was time for fun and laughter at the DT Next office as actors Robo Shankar, Madhumitha and Shakeela speak to our team about their show Kanni Theevu Ullasa Ulagam 2.0 that will go on air on Sunday
“The amount of English I had to learn for this show was massive. My wife and kids saw me reading English newspapers early in the morning. I revised my dialogues prior to the shoot and was conversing in English to almost everyone on the sets,” he adds.
The camaraderie off the camera looks so organic and they say that it has reflected well in front of the camera. “Things on location were quite different. We were a little nervous about how we would deliver the dialogues. Once, we started giving cues to each other we managed to do it in single takes,” says Madhumitha.
Robo Shankar, Madhumitha and Shakeela have all had their television stint before their stardom. Talking about it, Robo says, “Having started my career in a comedy reality show to films and now back to television is indeed a joy.” Shakeela says, “Mediums may differ but an actor is an actor whether it is a television show, a theatrical release or an OTT platform.” Robo agrees with her and says, “We might get a platform that is more futuristic than OTT but making people laugh is the most difficult job. Being a comedian has its own challenges.” “I totally agree with you Shankar,” says Madhumitha and adds, “There is one in 10 people who never appreciate good humour. He would be sitting with a straight face even after we crack a good joke and make us feel bad.” Shakeela on a concluding note says, “Kanni Theevu 2.0 will make even that one person with a straight face laugh his heart out.”
