In the big league


THE NEW Malayalee girl making waves in Chennai is Geetu Mohandas. She is Madhavan's heroine in Raj Kamal's "Nala Damayanthi" directed by Mouli. Those who saw a preview of the film are raving about her performance as Damayanthi, a Srilankan Tamil settled in Australia.

Geetu is no stranger to Tamil films, as she began her career as a child artiste in "Bommakuttiammavukku" and graduated to heroines' roles in Malayalam films such as "Life is Beautiful" and "Tenkasipattanam". But it was her performance as a Television reporter in the critically acclaimed "Sesham" that brought her to the notice of Kamalhassan, who later signed her up for "Nala Damayanthi".

Says Geetu: "I thoroughly enjoyed doing the film as it was a laugh riot even on the sets. Director Mouli gave me all the support along with Maddy. I am waiting to hear the audience response and if they accept me I will do more Tamil films".
