Sshivada Plays A Butcher In Shikkari Shambhu

Reported By 06 Jan 2018


Sshivada is preparing for her upcoming film Shikkari Shambhu which will be directed by Sugeeth. The actress will be playing a character which no actress has ever played. Though Sshivada is herself a vegetarian in real life, however, she will portray the character of a butcher named Anitha in the flick.

"I have so far been a girl-next-door onscreen and have never tried something of this sort before,” she said. Sshivada also said that she found it difficult to essay the role. The 31-year-old also said, "I couldn't stand the sight or the smell of raw meat. But I had to do it for the character and finally, I guess I got used to it over time."

Sshivada’s portions were shot inside the forest, but this is not the first time that she shot her scenes in the forest. "Even my first movie Nedunchalai had a lot of scenes in the forest, so I was kind of used to it. But the days at Bhoothathankettu did offer me some first-time experiences," she reveals. "I saw a boa for the first time! Everyone on the set kept talking about seeing elephants, about how they once trampled down a set for a temple, and I was wondering why I didn't see any. On the day of my pack-up, I saw not one, but seven of them right next to my vehicle. It was a family, with elders and the young ones," said the Achayans actress.

Sshivada is currently busy shooting for her Tamil film Iravaakalam, which is directed by Ashwin Saravanan. The movie stars S J Surya and Wamiqa Gabbi in the lead roles.
