If someone is planning to elope, then ‘Thrishanku’ is a film that shows how one should not elope, says actress Anna Ben. She is playing a lead role, along with Arjun Ashokan, in the film. Anna Ben also said that just like the name of the film, the film is full of suspense and excitement.

Trishanku filled with suspense

Megha is the character that is portrayed in the film. The theme of the film is an elopement and all the problems that arise due to it. While on the run, the characters fall in the clutches of a few uncles. These uncles are present throughout the movie and add humor to the story. Everyone in the film is going through different problems. In the film, the lover and the lover's sister are all together caught up in a Thrishanku situation.

When the name of the film Thrishanku was launched, everyone used to ask what it meant. There have been many situations in my life where there was no escape. Where I had no love, no relationships. Although I have been caught multiple times for cheating during exams, I have managed to escape the consequences because there were many others who also cheated. However, aside from those incidents, I have never been involved in any major trouble in my life, she says.

I don’t care much about awards

My Dad always says that our current success is the next step to fulfill something in front of us. It is a bit of a stretch to say that our work will go above and beyond what we have done before. But I do not constantly think about the state award. The only thought is to do good work and to work sincerely. I believe everything else will come with it.

Arjun is a hard working actor

In Thrishanku, Arjun Ashokan is acting as my boyfriend. Arjun was my senior in school. I have known him since then. But we were not friends or that close with each other. Before Thrishanku, two or three other movie offers came up where we could act together, but all of them were abandoned due to various reasons. Arjun Ashok's success in film journey is a result of his hard work and his choice of films. Arjun always carefully selects the good and best scripts, she says.

About Papa

My Papa is someone who always prefers to be happy and chill. While he was writing the story of ‘Kalyanaraman’, he would read the scenes to us after writing them. During Kalyanaraman's time, we were small kids. Papa doesn't usually sit at home and write. But in some cases he writes at home. And at those times, we would hear him laughing out loud. Papa himself laughs when he reads his own comedy. He reads out the scene to us, to know if the jokes have worked out. If we laugh or say that we like it, he says, ‘Ha, the locals liked my comedy.’

We watch Dad’s movies and always comment about it. Similarly, my father also comments after watching my film. I think it is good to have such a critic at home. Because the remark will be exact. If it's good, he says it's good and if it's bad, it's bad. He says it, exactly as it is. I think what the people at home say are better off than what others say. We work with Papa the same way. When he reads out some of the scenes he wrote and while we listen to them, we would say that it is not good, or it is awful. And when we say that, he changes the scene. He always takes in our feedback and accepts our opinions.
