Asha Sarath to play Mohanlal’s wife for the third time!
Dancer-turned-actress Asha Sarath has been bagging a lot of solid roles lately. She last played a tough CBI officer in Anushka Shetty’s Tamil-Telugu bilingual Bhaagamathie. In Jayaraj’s National award winning Bhayankam, she plays the role of Gowri Kunjamma, a woman from the 1930s. She is also part of director Ranjith’s upcoming movie Drama.
Asha Sarath is playing the role of Mohanlal’s wife in Drama. Interestingly, this is their third outing as a pair after playing a couple in Karmayodha and 1971: Beyond Borders. Apart from the aforementioned films, they have also acted together in Drishyam and Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol. They both share a great rapport and that has reflected on their performances on-screen.
Drama is a movie entirely set in the UK. It is about the lives of Malayalis living abroad. Asha Sarath’s character is named Rekha and since it is a husband-wife story, she has got a meaty role to perform. From the recently released teaser, the movie promises to bring back the fun side of Mohanlal. The actor himself has pinned high hopes on the movie.
According to him, Drama is a kind of movie that has not been attempted in Malayalam cinema. Unlike his earlier films with Ranjith, Drama will not have any superstar elements such as massive action scenes or dialogues. Ranjith has scripted it as a feel-good movie with good dose of humour, sentiments and family drama. Arundhathi Nag, Siddique, Niranj, Mythili, Shalin Zoya and Tini Tom and Baiju are also part of the cast. Drama is expected to hit screens in September.
