Pearle Maaney spreading her wings to Tollywood
With her curly locks and unconventional looks, Pearle Maaney had carved a niche as an actress and television host in Kerala.
She is now spreading her wings to Tollywood through Kalyana Vaibhogame directed by Nandini Reddy. The comedy entertainer has actor Naga Shourya in the lead and will feature actress Malavika Nair too.
The VJ-turned-actress who has just returned to Kochi after winding up the dubbing for her Telugu debut is excited to share her experience. “Like my real character, I come as an adventure freak in the film. My name is Vaidehi and I am a rock climber-cum-wildlife photographer. The entire cinema revolves around Naga’s love life with the two girls enacted by Malavika and me,” she says.
Revealing further about her role, Pearle explains that her character has a key role in changing the attitude of the hero towards his love life. “Everything changes in the hero’s life when Vaidehi comes in. Her impact on him makes him realise the importance of true love,” she muses. Pearle is also excited about being part of a movie that is directed by a woman. “It is the first time I am working with a female director and I am really inspired. A fantastic experience, I would say. All I knew about her was that she is the director of the popular Telugu cinema, Ala Modalaindi that cast Nani and Nithya Menen. I should tell you that she is an incredible director,” she says.
Though enthused about being part of a movie in a different language, she says that she is passionate about VJing and prefers to focus on television media. ” I will do roles in movies when it comes to me. But I prefer to concentrate on TV,” she concludes.
