“I was born and brought up in Australia,” says the actress. “I didn’t know anything about the Mullaperiyar issue. I was explained the script by the director and was concerned only about its cinematic background,” she adds.
“I don’t mean to hurt the sentiments of anyone. I never even dreamt that this film would become such a topic of hot debate and discussion. It’s through friends that I’ve come to know that the film has been banned in Tamil Nadu,” says Vimala who has acted in a few Malayalam films like ‘Nasrani’, ‘College Kumaran’ and so on.
