Mareena Michael is all set to make her debut with Ennul Aayiram, which stars Maha Delhi Ganesh in the lead. While this might be the first film for the Kerala-based actress, Mareena says that she felt at home while working on this project. She says, “A production controller, who knew Delhi Ganesh, introduced me to him. Later, I heard the script, which I loved. Since I am new to the industry and the city, Ganesh sir asked me if I want to stay at hotel or at his place. I preferred to stay at his place as his wife is also a Malayali. Throughout the entire process, I felt at home. We used to go together for the shoot and come back home. It was so much fun.”

Talking about her role, she says, “The character that I play is completely different from what I am in real life. I sport a different look, too. My character’s name is Suhasini, and she is a bank employee. Though I am not allowed to reveal too many details, I can say is that it is a cute character. But the most challenging part about working in this film was that I had to adapt to two different roles around the same time. I play a terrorist in a Malayalam film, which is quite intense. I had shuttle between the sets of these two films! So, it took a while for me. Also, we had shot a couple of portions of the Tamil film in a bus for about a month, and travel sickness took a toll on me. Nevertheless, it was a good experience.”

Ask the young actress about her co-star, who’s making his debut in Tamil, and she says, “Delhi Ganesh sir is a reputed artiste in the industry today. And so, I thought being his son, Maha will have an attitude issue (laughs). But then, he was really sweet. I hardly knew any Tamil when I was signed on for this project. But now, I know 70% Tamil, all thanks to him. He was very helpful.”
