Actress Kalpana is getting great applause for her character in Dolphin bar directed by Diphan and scripted by Anoop Menon. The film had already generated positive response among the Mollywood film viewers and on the way to become one of the big hits of this year. The film is a great come back platform for our action king Suresh Gopi as he had high hopes on this one after some terrible years as an actor and as a star. But the film turned out to be a milestone in another person’s career too. That is our own Kalpana. Kalpana always does comic roles and she is the one actress who made malayalees laugh with other great actresses such as Late Sukumari Amma and KPSC Lalitha.
Kalpana’s combination with the great Jagathy Sreekumar was always hilarious and the two of the had form quite a team of comedy in Mmollywood. But as an actress with great potential Kalpana got meaty roles only a few times in her career and nobody really remembers that she is a national award winner too. But the team behind Dolphins had a great role in store for Kalpana. She said that, Diphan, director of the film Dolphin called her and said that she have to do a role in his coming film named dolphin and he said to her that the script writer of the film Anoop Menon will call her and will tell her about the role.
As Diphan said, Anoop called Kalpana and told her that her character is a Bold woman named ‘Vava’ and she is a woman who always stand by the side of her husband in any case. Then Kalpana asked exactly what her role is and then only Anoop said that she has to play the wife of the character played by Super star Suresh Gopi and infact she is the heroine of the film. She was filled with astonishment to hear that it was Suresh Gopi who recommend her name to play the character and thus Kalpana entered into the character of Vava, wife of Panayamuttam Sura.
While shooting, Sursh Gopi also said to her that when he saw the film Chinnaveedu, he felt that Kalpana will be the best choice for the role of Vava. She said that she was very much honoured to be recommended by a super star like Suresh Gopi. She also said that she loved the character name ‘vava’ as it is a welcome change from the usual names of her characters like ‘Thankachi, Ponnamma or Pankajaakshi’.
