Actress Asha Sharath compares Drishyam and Papanasam

Papanasam, the remake of Malayalam Drishyam will release this Friday, the 3rd July. The film is directed by Jeethu Joseph with Kamal Haasan, Gauthami, Nivedha Thomas and others in the cast list.


Drishyam had a very important role of a police officer, played by Asha Sharath who would be reprising her role in the Tamil version too.  


In an exclusive conversation with behindwoods, Asha tells that Papanasam is her third Drishyam. She has done the same role in Malayalam, Kannada and now Tamil.


Comparing Drishyam and Papanasam, Asha says,


“The script is the same in both the languages. Kamal and Mohanlal have conceived their characters as per the regional sensibilities. Drishyam and Papanasam are done in different styles. To me, I felt as though I have done two different films and not the same.


I have performed my role in a Tamil style. Whenever we act, it is more of reacting rather than acting based on the artist with whom we are performing. The person who was standing opposite me was Ulaganayagan Kamal sir. Therefore my reactions were based on his actions and vice versa.


My looks also will be different. In Malayalam I had sported straight hair while in Tamil, we went in for my natural curly haired look.  In that sense, everything will be different”


Is Asha open to doing Tamil films? “I love Tamil films and can speak the language. I have done my dubbing in Papanasam. Suka sir helped me in my dubbing. I am definitely open to Tamil films when I get good performance oriented roles”


Wishing the very best to Asha Sharath and the entire Papanasam team!
