‘Eeda is an intense love story’
The movie, directed by editor Ajith Kumar B, has Nimisha Sajayan and Shane Nigam in the lead
Eeda, which will mark the directorial debut of editor Ajith Kumar B, is an intense love story, according to the filmmaker. He says, "It is inspired by Romeo and Juliet. The entire focus is on how Aiswarya, a student from Mysuru, falls for the character played by Shane Nigam."
While the director says it will have all the flavours of a romance drama, the approach is realistic. "The kind of love in Eeda is something we see around us," he adds.
The movie, most of which has been shot in Mysuru and Kerala, gives both the lead actors a great scope for performance. Ajith Kumar thinks the duo really complement each other. "Shane and Nimisha are such great actors. Their chemistry is great and I believe they look perfect. Eeda is banking on it," he adds.
As for the title Eeda, the director says it is the Malabar slang for the word 'Ivide' (Here).
Meanwhile, Nimisha Sajayan, who plays Aishwarya in Eeda, says that the movie helped her explore her artistic self. "Playing Aishwarya was a great experience which challenged me. I enjoyed it," she says. The actress is all praise for co-star Shane Nigam. "With Shane, it is a give-and-take process. He is such a great performer. He is a natural actor and it was challenging matching up to him," says Nimisha.
The movie is likely to hit the screens by the end of October.
