Madonna Sebastian is now a well- known figure among Malayali audiences specially among the youngsters with her great show in Alphonse Puthren’s recent super hit Premam. Madonna had come to our industry as a singer in the film You Too Brutus starred Sreenivasan and Asif Ali. But now she is an actress as well who want to continue with both her singing and acting career. After the mollywood debut now she is been making her tamil debut as well with the film directed by Nalan Kumara Swamy who is famous for his film Soothukavum and popular actor Vijay Sethupathi is her hero in that Tamil film which has already started filming.
Madonna was offered to do the character of Mary in premam at first. But She liked the character of Celina more and told the director Alphons that she will prefer to do the character of celine. That character has a suspense element in it and will not be used in the posters or any other means of promotion. But Mary has two song sequences and it was quite easy to get noticed and to be popular. But Madonna feels that Celine will be more comfortable for her to play as that character had some resemblance with Madonna’s original self and so she not had any difficulty to enact that character on screen.
She said that she don’t even revealed to her close friends that she had acted in a film and after the first show many of them called her saying that it was a tremendous surprise for them to see her on screen with Nivin Pauly. The actress said that in tamil she is doing an entirely different character and that too of a middle class village girls who comes to town in search of a job. It was through Alphons puthran that she got the opportunity to work in tamil as the director of the Tamil film named Nalan Kumara Swamy and Alphonse Puthren are friends that that really paved the way for her to the Kollywood film industry.
This talented actress was really passionate about her music and she says that music comes first for her but she likes acting too and will try to do justice to both fields as much as she can.
