In just three days, the Instagram followers of actress Veena Nair saw a big surge while appreciation came nonstop on her handle. It was all an intrigue but some days back Veena finally decided to enact the same scene from the super hit movie ‘Ente Sooryaputhrikku’, and never had any idea how it would fare. Veena Nair recreated the song ‘Aalapanam Thedum Thaimanam’ from the movie where Sreevidya played the role of Vasundhara Devi. And now, she has reasons to be happy since the video has crossed more than 70 lakh viewers on Instagram, a marvellous feat.

Veena Nair:

“There is more to Sreevidya Amma than her serene beauty. I have always been mesmerized by the ease with which she transforms into a character. It was during my time acting in ‘Sasneham’ serial in DD that I heard about her death. She remains for me the best actress. A desire to do her makeover was burning inside me for many years.

Veteran artists Sreelatha Namboothiri and KPAC Lalitha had likened my facial features to Sreevidya Amma while on film sets. While doing the movie ‘Mei Hoom Moosa’ even Suresh Gopi sir admitted to this resemblance.

The makeover shoot happened in the blink of an eye. It all came too soon. The yellow saree was taken from ‘Weavers Village’ owned by Bigg Boss fame Shobha. We also managed to pick up a necklace, bangle and an earring resembling the same from the movie. The tanpura instrument was taken for rent while the shoot was done inside my apartment. I have wide eyebrows while Sreevidya Amma had narrow ones. So I had to thin my eyebrows to perfect the whole look. Apart from this, the makeup was normal. When the song was played, I felt an aura of the film coming back and acted out the portion with ease. However, no amount of hard work will make me match her acting prowess in the song.

I had watched the song video a thousand times, aiming to bring some difference. I have never tried to emulate Sreevidya Amma but only acted as Veena. Abin Sabu placed the lights and framed the shots nicely. The styling was done by Nithin. The whole team gave me support. I have never seen such a response on my Instagram page. New followers are coming in thousands every day. And as an icing on the cake, actress Manju Warrier shared the video on her Instagram page, which is the greatest appreciation of all.

The choreographer of ‘Ente Sooryaputhrikku’ Shanthi Master somehow found my number and called me to appreciate. What more do I need?
