Actress and filmmaker Revathi has always been part of sensitive subjects but the recently released Kalki Koechlin starrer MARGARITA WITH A STRAW, saw her in a much complicated & delicate role. She not only played a cerebral palsy-affected girl’s (essayed by Kalki) mother but Revathi’s character is also shown suffering from brain cancer in the film.
When asked about playing such a complicated role, she begged to differ, “My role was not complicated. It was simple, truthful and a natural role. The complication was in the script as it was highly sensitive and sensitively written. I just had to be there and understand. I did what they (makers) needed and it was really easy.”
Revathi, who has been very selective about her work, enjoyed doing a film like MARGARITA. In fact she was waiting for such a role for a long time.
