  • In an interview, she revealed how she got the role in ‘Oru Muthassi Gadha,’ she said,

There was this notice on an online site, about an audition for actors, between the ages of 60 and 70. Anil, of the F3 Health Club that I visit every day, told me to try it. But I am very bad with technology, I didn’t know how to apply online. So I told Maju Mathew (who acted in Action Hero Biju) to tell Jude. And Jude happened to see a video of mine and liked my actions. So he came home the next day with his pregnant wife Diyana and Appu, the actor who plays the Bengali servant in the film. I was wearing these same clothes (T shirt and slacks) and I hear Jude had said then, ‘Ithu aanu nammude muthassi (this is our grandma).”
