Saji Surendran finally announced the main lead and 'driver' for his project titled She-Taxi - none other than Kavya Madhavan. Kavya will essay the character of Devayani, the driver of a she-taxi who goes on a trip with three college students, which turns out to be momentous.
"The girls are on a trip to shoot the documentary on a temple and the film is all about the funny events that happen in the course of their 10-day journey," says Saji. This will be the first time Kavya, who is known to be extremely selective these days, will be playing such a character. She hasn't been seen in a comedy in the recent past either. "The film is an out-and-out entertainer and I felt Kavya is the apt person for the role. Her character is that of someone who knows her own mind and can tactfully deal with an situation or person she might encounter as a woman taxi driver." So is Kavya a good driver in real? "She has learnt driving earlier and is brushing up her driving skills, I learnt," laughs the director. Like in real, her character is someone who is from a village in the Kerala Karnataka border.
Anoop Menon plays the male lead in the film, and it will be the first time the two will be teaming up. "Another team of people consisting of Anoop, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Noby of Angry Babies fame and P Balakrishnan are also on a journey and the two groups are brought together owing to certain circumstances," says Saji.
The film will be penned by Angry Babies scribe Krishna Poojappura and will be shot in Coorg, Mercara and Gundalpet.
This is somewhat a comeback for Kavya since she was missing from the films for the past few months. She will also join the cast of an upcoming movie Last Bell where she will play the role of a school teacher. It would be interesting to see which direction she taxi will take her career to.
