Actress Dushara Vijayan
Dushara Vijayan is almost in a state of confusion as people have already renamed and are fondly addressing her as ‘Mariyamma’. Courtesy to her mind-boggling performance in Pa. Ranjith’s Sarpatta Parambarai: she has become the favourite of every home. Well, this wasn’t an overnight success for the missy from Dindugal. She had to wait for seven years to find this breakthrough. And now she’s basked in glory over the acclaims for her spellbinding performance.
Actress Dushara Vijayan says, “I am inclined to joyful and emotional over the response. I thank Pa. Ranjith sir, for this lifetime opportunity. I had to wait for a long time to get such an offer and am glad that it happened with Sarpatta Parambarai.” She continues to add, “Initially, I couldn’t believe when I got a call from Pa. Ranjith sir’s office and thought someone is pranking me. But to find 17 missed calls from the same number the next day made me irresistibly anxious that I have made a blunder. I instantly rushed to his office and apologized to him for my ignorance. Pa. Ranjith sir was polite, and he asked me to enact a scene. Eventually, I somewhat felt that he was unconvinced, which urged me to keep pushing the bars ahead. Finally, he got convinced during the photoshoot that I would pull it off perfectly.” Sharing her current state of mind after the film’s success, Dushara Vijayan adds, “I am not able to step out of the world of Mariyamma, and it will take some time. I am so glad that my long wait for a breakthrough happened with Sarpatta Parambarai. I thank Arya sir for his abundant support on the sets. I was quite astonished to witness something completely contradictory to what everyone spoke about him. I heard many say that he is a jovial and easy-to-move guy on the sets, but he was ‘Mr. Serious meets Mr. Silence’. Even Ranjith sir had to move forward and ask if he was comfortable as Arya was completely a different man on the sets. Of course, he is a perfectionist, and he completely retained the world of Kabilan. However, he didn’t miss to surprise us often with his inherent hilarious nature.” Dushara Vijayan has now signed to play the female lead role in Vasantha Balan’s next directorial, starring Arjun Das in the lead role. She will be someone in complete contrast to Mariyamma
