Honey Rose, one of the prominent actress in Malayalam film industry opens up about her film ‘Chalakkudikaran Changathi’ and the casting couch she has experienced from the Industry.Many of the actresses dared to talk about casting couch in the industry but in an interview with our reporter, Honey Rose had opened up about it.
Senthil being a new face,it was heard that popular actresses refused to act with him. Honey Rose being one among the popular actresses,Why did you take up this challenge. ?
For me it was a good opportunity from Vinayan Sir as he introduced me to the industry. And I was very comfortable to work in Vinayan Sir’s movie. Also I was very happy to work in Kalabhavan Manichettan’s biopic.
As a person, how much do you know about Kalabhavan Mani?
Personally I don’t know much about Manichettan and I haven’t got any chance to met him or work with him. But becoming a part of the Chalakkudikaran Changathi, I was able to know about Manichettan and his personality.And after that I could understand the struggles faced by Manichettan as he was an autodriver, who came to the industry and made his own position as an actor. The effort he had taken up should be appreciated and respected.
From ‘Boyfriend’ to ‘Chalakkudikaran Changathi’, what is the difference that you feel now within yourself in this long journey?
I don’t feel much difference within me but, I have learnt many things in this long journey of 13 years. Infact, my changes or growth can be determined by Vinayan Sir as he knows me from my first film. As my first film was with Vinayan sir, he could understand the change in my acting.
In the past few years, actresses from several industries have been coming out with accusations and allegations of casting couch. Is there any truth in this ?
Yes, I think there is casting couch in the industry. Even I have experienced it verbally in the initial stage of my career. But, I haven’t experienced any physical abuse from the industry so far.
