'Playing the role came naturally to me': Aahana Kumra on playing a journalist in 'Salaam Venky'

Aahana Kumra

Aahana Kumra has switched professions—after playing a pilot in Madhur Bhandarkar’s India Lockdown, she essays the role of a journalist in Revathy’s Salaam Venky. As someone who has “a lot of journalist friends”, she says she has an understanding of their lifestyle. “[I] didn’t get too many takes because [reporting] is done in real locations. We didn’t have the luxury of going wrong. Since I have a great command over the language, playing the role came naturally to me.”

Revathy’s directorial venture revolves around a mother and her son, who suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy. “Revathy is one of the kindest human beings I have met. She is supportive and soft-spoken. I think her intention with this film is on point, which is why she was able to pull such a great cast together.”
