Bharatanatyam dancer Sruthy Jayan, who surprised one and all with her superbly internalised performance in Gods of Dharmapuri had entered the entertainment industry with the Malayalam hit film Angamaly Diaries, the very project that inspired Vishwak Sen’s Falaknuma Das. The actress recently shared how her dancing career was a great influence on her web series debut as well.
“Many say there’s an advantage that dancers have while they enter the acting field. While I definitely agree with that statement and also with the fact that the dancers can understand the rasa of a character better than their actor counterparts, there are certain challenges to be conquered too,”
she had added.
It’s well known that dancers emote a lot through their eyes (because their dance performances demand the same), but they can overdo also it in the case of their digital projects. Discussing the thin line that separates acting from dancing, she shares,
“The main aspect about digital space is that you need to be very minimalistic in your expression and yet convey the emotion. Getting into a character is way easier for a dancer, but showcasing emotions subtly is the key,”
The actress is extremely happy that Gods of Dharmapuri had become one of the most talked-about regional web series in 2019. The icing on the cake has been Sruthy’s brief appearance in the fictionalised Jayalalithaa biopic Queen, where Sruthy had played the role of an actor and confidante to the protagonist’s mother Ranganayaki. We certainly see a bright future ahead for Sruthy!
