Lal Jose's 'Elsamma Enna Aankutty' that released in 2010, put the spotlight on a gifted youngster who played the title role in the film - Ann Augustine. Daughter of actor Augustine, Ann came up with a competent performance in her debut film that set the screens ablaze.
Here is Ann Augustine in a one-to-one with Veeyen of nowrunning.com, when the charming actress chatted about being the most talked about newcomer in recent times, and on her new film 'Arjunan Sakshi' that would hit the cinemas, come Jan.28.
Congratulations on winning the Prem Nazir Puraskaram for Best Debutante Actress of 2010. And what a confident debut! I know that you have been busy studying psychology, so why did you decide to do films all on a sudden?
Thank you. I was offered 'Elsamma Enna Aankutty' when I was doing my final year in college and when Lalu ettan
(Lal Jose) suggested that I should do it, I was truly overwhelmed. I should say I wasn't sure if I could do justice to the role at all. Here I was, playing around and generally having a whale of a time, when I was asked to do a film. I had my reservations hence, and it's only because of Lalu ettan
that I finally decided to give Elsamma a try. It turned out that everyone associated with the film, right from the spot boy to the director, made me feel that it was a worthwhile experience. Image:
