Sriranjani: House Owner felt like my first film

When I first asked Sriranjani for an interview, she told me she is a tad nervous of media interactions. So when we settled down for an interaction, I was pleasantly surprised by her uninhibited vibrance. The actor, known for playing the mother in so many films, recently made heads turn with her stellar performance in House Owner. But she is quick to credit director Lakshmy Ramakrishnan. “The role and the story demanded that I be natural, just like we are at home. That was tough for me. There is a notion that ‘acting’ means being expressive. But none of that applied here,” she says. Her goal, she adds, was to understand what the director wanted and deliver it. “Lakshmy is brutally honest about what she feels — it is something that I love and hate about her because I can never be like that.”
