Madonna Sebastian:I loved the concept, so didn’t read script
Madonna Sebastian shot to fame with just one film, ‘Premam’, and post its release, she turned one of the most popular actresses in the industry.
However, even before Premamreleased, Madonna had shot for a film, which none knew much about — Humans of Someone — directed by Sumesh Lal. Madonna, who is basically a singer, says she was so hooked by the film that to date, she hasn’t read the script. “After I got an idea of the film, I didn’t want to listen to the story, I just wanted to go with the flow. It was an incredible experience. The beauty of it was that I had no idea what Sumesh Lal was planning to do in each scene. I would just do what he asked me to, and at the end, it would come out really beautiful,” she says. The reason why she picked the film, she says, is because she is a fan of Padmarajan. “Every character in the film portrays a bit of Padmarajan’s characters. I don’t want to reveal more now.”
Interestingly, the script writer, Nithin Nath, says that they found Madonna so apt for the role that they even moulded the script to suit her. “We have added interesting bits of her real life into the film.” The movie also has dancer Methil Devika and anchor Dhanya Varma in the cast.
