It is notable that the film’s heroine Samyuktha, in a promotional interview of “Vaathi”, had said that she doesn’t like to be called as Samyuktha “Menon” as it endorses her caste. I want media portals to refer me as “Samyuktha” instead of “Samyuktha Menon” the actress said. The actress’s bold decision is gained her accolades from all over the public and media portals.

Before “Vaathi”, Samyutha acted in films such as “Kalari”, “July Kaatre” etc. She also appeared in a Tamil and Malayalam bilingual film “Erida”. In the interview, the actress further said that she belongs of Palakkad of Kerala but will speak Tamil fluently.
