Inmai Cast: Meet the stars to feature in the short film
Southern actor Siddharth will be leading the Inmai segment of the upcoming Tamil anthology Navarasa. Talking about his experience of working in this Mani Ratnam project, he said in an interview that he was very happy when he was offered the short film. “It’s one of the Nine Rasas, the word means something which is not there.” He added that the curiosity of people would be elevated on hearing the word ‘Inmai’. The actor also brought to light the fact that the project is a step to help the film fraternity and the people involved by raising funds as they have been majorly affected by the pandemic. “It was an exciting experience working with the filmmaker Rathindran and Actress Parvathy Thiruvothu.”
Parvathy Thiruvothu plays the role of Waheeda in the segment. She said in an interview that the film captures the kind of fear that she can’t exactly relate to. Parvathy said that while she is someone who is fine with everything coming to an end one day, “Waheeda is a person who has struggled hard to get where she, and now her entire life is being tested and she has to navigate this.” The Uyare actor added that it was interesting for her to essay a role like this. On getting the offer, she was both excited and nervous because she had not internalised fear as an emotion in any film.
