In a surprising first, actress Nandita Swetha is all set to play a young mother in her upcoming 'Narmadha'. Directed by debutante Geetha Rajput, the film will be yet another female-centric moie. “It is a family drama that revolves around the relationship between a mother and her son. Nandita, for the first time, will play a young, bold and energetic mother of a seven-year-old. When I narrated the story to her, she told me that she hasn't done something like this before. She told me that she will see if she can fit into the role. In 12 days' time, Nandita said she's convinced that she can justify the character that I had written. This will be a challenging role and definitely not run-of-mill role or script,” Geetha said.
The character of her son will be played by newcomer Renesh. Also in the movie are Vijay Vasanth, MS Bhaskar, and Santhosh Prathap in pivotal roles. Geetha said, “Everyone in the team is doing homework for their roles. Renesh is taking some acting lessons, too. Nandita has already lost eight kilos for her role. We will begin shooting from May 15. Most portions will be shot in Chennai, Nagercoil, Tirunelveli, and Hyderabad.”
