“Draupathy” director Mohan G reacted to the statement made by actress Sheela in one of her recent interviews by “liking” a video through his official twitter handle. In the old video which surfaced during the release time of the film, Sheela could be seen saying that she accepted to act in the film due to its story that revolves around the place where she was born.
Sheela also said that the film will make an impact in a father and daughter if they go to watch the film together. Mohan G who is currently directing a film named “Bagasooram” liked the video which was shared by a twitter user after the actress said that the story of “Draupathy” was not told to her in a recent interview.
In her recent interaction with a news channel, actress Sheela Rajkumar who is known for acting in acclaimed films such as “Mandela”, “Kumbalangi Nights”, “Tolet”, had said that acting in “Draupathy” was like a bad dream in her career. The actress said that she needed such lesson in her life and treats it as a positive one to grow in her career. Sheela said that she doesn’t know about the existence of caste discrimination in the society as she grew in a hostel with girls and also pointed out that the entire script was not narrated to her.
“You are known for acting in socially responsible film but your film “Drauathi” received mixed reactions. what kind of film “Draupathy” is, according to you ?” asked the host of Puthiya Thalaimurai TV to which Sheela expressed her regret over acting in the Mohan G directorial.
“Draupathi feels like a bad dream for me as the director didn’t tell the entire script to me. End of the day, the decision is going to be mine and I will be ready to face the consequences. I literally don’t know anything about politics. I don’t have any connection with politics. I just want to do my job with perfection” Sheela said in the interview.
“If you tell me what kind of job I am going to do, the decision about accepting it and rejecting is going to be made by me. In the “Draupathi”, we had a little bit of miscommunication. No one could travel in a good path forever, some downfalls will be there. I see Draupathi as my lesson” she further said.
“I came to know about the kind of reception “Draupathi” received only after the release of the film. I didn’t about this side of the society. While I was studying in hostel, we didn’t ask our fellow students about their caste. I never faced these kind of discriminations and it’s a new experience for me” the actress made it clear and went on to say that she is not answerable to anyone for acting in “Draupathi”.
