Honey Rose is gung ho about her role in Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus

Honey Rose is on a roll. The actor who began her innings in Mollywood with Vinayan’s Boyy Friennd, struck gold with V.K. Prakash’s Trivandrum Lodge. Her role as Dhwani, a divorcee who wants to have a good time, propelled her into the limelight. Although she has acted in a string of movies post Trivandrum Lodge, Aami, a segment in Amal Neerad’s 5 Sundarikal being the latest, most of the characters and movies failed to make a mark.

This could be a reason why the actor is keeping her fingers crossed for director Marthandan’s debut movie, Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus. Set against the backdrop of the theatre, Daivathinte… Swantham Cleetus has Mammootty playing Cleetus, a theatre artiste; Honey plays Lakshmi, Cleetus’ wife.

“A naadan woman, she is the quintessential girl-next-door; someone every Malayali can relate to.

Lakshmi is a lot like me. I too am a small town girl. Lakshmi is bold and faces life heads on. She runs a small tailoring unit to support her son and herself.”

The actor is thrilled that the film has been shot at her home town – Thodupuzha. “The camera has captured the beauty of my hometown and I am glad that I have been given a substantial role in the movie.”

Acting with Mammootty, she says, has always been a dream “as I grew up watching actors like Mammootty and Mohanlal on screen.” Mammootty, she says, did not have any airs and was friendly.

Honey is currently acting in Arun Kumar’s 1 by Two. It stars Fahadh Faasil, Murali Gopy, Shyamaprasad and Isha Talwar. Honey acts as a doctor.
