Usha is an actress who was adored by Malayalis during the 1990s. The film 'Nokkethadhoorathu Kannum Nattu' marked the actress's cinematic debut as a child artist. Usha, who went on to act in several films, garnered the attention of the audience through her role in Mohanlal's 'Kireedam'. Fans are still anxious to learn about Usha's most recent news. Now, an interview given by Usha to a Malayalam channel is going viral on social media. In this interview, Usha opens up about how her name was changed from Haseena to Usha when she entered the film industry.

Usha's words

'My original name is Haseena. Balachandra Menon sir used to change the names of all his heroines. He was the one who said that my name should be changed. When Menon sir said this to my father, my father said that 'Haseena' was his favourite name. However, Menon sir said that my name might turn out to be a problem when we shoot for the film in the temples. That is how I got the name 'Usha'. Although it was said that my name would be changed in the second film, I did not change it. There was a lot of opposition from relatives and the community against using the name Usha. Now, everything has changed," Usha said.

Usha said that although she is a supporter of the Left Front, she does not want to talk politics. She, however, said that AM Arif would win in the Alappuzha Lok Sabha constituency.

"I hope that the LDF would go on to win 20 out of 20 seats. I'm sure the LDF would win more than 10 seats in the Lok Sabha elections in Kerala," she added.
