Actress Srushti Dange, who plays the lead along with Shanthanu Baghyaraj in the eagerly awaited romantic-thriller Mupparimanam, recently admitted that she had wept inconsolably while shooting for the film.
Interestingly, the teaser of the film, which was released recently, has already raised expectations from the film.
The pretty actress, who has already made a mark in the Tamil film industry, said, ” I am someone who believes that it is one’s work that should speak as actions speak louder than words. However, I wish to talk about my experience of shooting for this particular film as I consider it to be really important in my career.
The actress said, “When I met director Adhiroopan for the first time and when he narrated the script to me, I was a little taken aback. However, the person that he was, Adhiroopan, who is from director Bala’s school, never gave up on me. Directors push their artistes to give a 100 per cent. Adhiroopan would push us to give a 1000 per cent.
” Initially, I used to find it very difficult as he would keep insisting on perfection. He would keep pushing us to extract the best from us. It was so exhausting that I would be totally drained. One day, unable to take it any longer, I burst out crying on the sets. I wept inconsolably and told my dad that I should give up acting in this film.
“I cried my heart out for a long time. I then went up to the director and told him,’ Sir, I think I should give up acting in this film because we don’t seem to be on the same page.’ He said, ‘Srushti, give me two days and I’ll show you the rushes.’ Two days later, when I saw the rushes, I was more than convinced as the rushes were so beautiful. I then understood what we were looking to make and that Adhiroopan was looking to extract the best out of us. He continued to be that way. Today, I consider this film to be a very important one in my career,” Srushti said.
The actress , in a ligher vein, also added,”This director was a real task master. He had a set of rules that all of us had to follow on the sets. Firstly, we weren’t allowed to chat on mobiles while shooting. Next, he wouldn’t allow jokes. On the sets, we would have to be addressed by our character names. I am not saying all this as a complaint. I want to point out how much of effort has gone into the making of this film, which has now come out really well. Director Adhiroopan has done justice to the work he extracted from us. “
