Mollywood beauty Anu Sithara has slowly climbed the ladders and beocome a name to reckon with. The Mamangam star will be soon making her Tollywood debut opposite Rajashekar in Sekhar. Directed by Lalith, the investigative thriller has already completed a schedule of shooting in Aaraku.
Talking about casting Anu for the part, the director says the role requires the actress to exhibit a lot of maturity. “Also, it has multiple looks in various time frames, so we were very specific in what we are looking for. We need performers,” says Lalith, adding, “She’s a great classical dancer too, so I thought that aspect of her could come in handy for us.”
Explaining that he happened to see Anu’s performance in a recent Malayalam film, Lalith says, “I narrated the story over a zoom call and she liked the layers in her character. She came on board instantly.” The director also reveals that he had auditioned over 15 actresses for the part but it was the Mollywood starlet who caught his attention.
