'I want to be remembered for each film and my performance'

...says 21-year-old Kruthika Jayakumar, who will be playing a 35-year-old character in Shivarajkumar-starrer Kavacha

Published: 31st March 2019

Kruthika Jayakumar is someone who believes in choosing roles wisely rather than grabbing every opportunity that comes her way. So, despite her role in Kavacha requiring her to play the role of a 35-year-old, Kruthika, now 21, didn’t think twice. Kruthika believes she will be able to make a lasting impression with the role. “At no point did I worry that I was playing the role of someone much older than me,” says the actor, who adds that it was the story of the film (inspired by the Malayalam film Oppam) which caught her attention.  

"The only challenge was to gain weight for the role and look mature. My character is emotionally attached to Jayanna (played by Shivarajkumar). The film has gone through a lot of changes to suit the Kannada audience. I am confident that it will do well for all of us,” she says. 

Discussing her career graph so far, Kruthika says, “I don’t want to be known as the actor who just did a lot of films. I want to be remembered for each film and its performance.” She also adds that she wanted to complete her education, which was another reason for not taking up too many projects. “Now that I have graduated, films will be my only focus. Kavacha is only the beginning,” she concludes.
