Piaa had no qualms about tonsuring her head for Abhiyum Anuvum
The actress is paired with Tovino Thomas in the film
Piaa Bajpai, who will next be seen in upcoming Tamil-Malayalam bilingual Abhiyum Anuvum, says she did not hesitate to tonsure her head for the sake of her character. The actress is paired with Tovino Thomas in the film.
"I'm happy to be a part of this project. When the script was narrated to me, I loved the story so much that I badly wanted to be part of the film. The script demanded that I tonsure my head and I didn't hesitate as the story genuinely required it," says Piaa. She believes a real actor will score big even when they don't look good on screen.
The film, which is gearing up for release soon, is directed by BR Vijayalakshmi. On teaming up with a female director, she adds, "She is very efficient to work with. The way she handled the sets and extracted work out of every actor and technician was amazing. She is a real task master."
On her co-star Tovino, Piaa says she was really impressed with his acting ability. "The audiences are really going to love this very bold love story."
