Swathimuthyam, the family entertainer starring Ganesh and Varsha Bollamma in the lead, hits theatres on October 5. The film, written and directed by Lakshman K Krishna, is bankrolled by S Naga Vamsi under Sithara Entertainments in association with Fortune Four Cinemas.
Ahead of its release, actress Varsha Bollamma shared her experiences of working in the film with the media.
“My character Bhagyalakshmi dominates Ganesh slightly in the film. While I play a firm, confident girl, there’s an innocence to Ganesh. She’s a pre-primary school teacher and like her strictness with students, she has the upper hand in the relationship too,” she said about her character.
She says there is no inspiration for her character. “I didn’t have any real-life teacher in mind to play the part. Though I have had great teachers in the past, I didn’t have anyone as a reference for Swathimuthyam,” she told.
The actress also refutes speculations that the movie is inspired by Vicky Donor. ” Though we may deal with the same theme as Vicky Donor for a brief portion of the film, Swathimuthyam is a proper family entertainer and a love story. The world of this film is entirely different,” she clarified.
