Read on to know about the other side of actress-director Revathy

From a stubborn wife in Mouna Raagamto a docile wife in Thevar Magan to a mentally challenged girl in Killukam, Revathy has played a range of characters. Now, it's the role of a daredevil in real life that gives her an adrenalin rush. Fired by the spirit of adventure, she attempted solo static line jump at the Sulur Air Force Station in Coimbatore, recently. She jumped off an MI 8 helicopter from a height of 4,000 feet on a `Ram Air' parachute. She says, "Being an Army officer's daughter, the streaks of adventure were there. But skydiving is something I never thought I would do even in my wildest dreams." It was the para jump by the Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal S. P. Tyagi when he was 60 that inspired her to approach Air Force Adventure to get trained in sport parachuting.Rallying in the Himalayas and racing on the Sriperumbudur track were not enough. It was only the feeling of flying like a bird that could satisfy the daredevil in her. "It was an amazing experience. Up there in the sky, I just put my hands up and totally shut myself, relaxed and enjoyed the breeze. There was absolute silence and everything was crystal clear, the scenery, the greenery and I could even hear the flutter of birds," she says.Getting back to her career, Revathy says she wants to stop doing character artiste roles. "I'm working on my new script in Hindi and hopefully shooting should begin this April. Right now, there is space to showcase films that do not have a commercial format. I want to utilise that and make films I believe in." K.JESHIK.JESHI
