Sassy Dhwani had made audiences sit up and take notice of actress Honey Rose in Trivandrum Lodge . Coming up next is Dr. Prema in Arun Kumar Arvind’s 1 By Two .

“Dr. Prema, my character in the movie, is a woman of the world. She is not a coy teenager who is seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses. The film is a psychological thriller and Arun explained each and every situation very well to help me get into the skin of the character,” says Honey.

Although she is in the news for her bold scenes with Murali Gopy, her co-star in the film, Honey says Prema and the film are much more than the snippets that have been making headlines. Scripted by Jeyamohan, 1 By Two is a suspense-filled thriller that delves into the labyrinth of the mind.

“A character and an actress are two different people. For instance, Honey Rose is an introvert who enjoys nothing better than lazing around at home. But Dhwani was a worldly-wise woman who called a spade and spade and had no inhibitions about articulating her desires and disappointments. Prema is also a mature woman who is the captain of her destiny and makes her own choices,” explains Honey.

Honey admits she was a little apprehensive of her role in the film and how viewers would react to it. “But I am sure viewers would not see anything amiss in the scenes in this film. It is part of the narrative and not out of place for the character in that situation. When one dons a character, the actor has to become that person. Otherwise, I feel, the character will not breathe on screen. Once that became clear in my mind, I had no apprehensions about Prema,” she adds.

She is also acting with Dileep in Ringmaster, in which she plays Diana, a “character with negative shades as well. I am enjoying donning different characters,” she adds.

The actress, who cherry picks her roles, is all gung ho about working with a young team of filmmakers who have been bold enough to make their own movies without looking over the shoulder at the box office and the critics.

“We have done our best. Now, it is for the viewers to make their choice,” she says.
