A ‘classical’ comeback

Seasoned actor Amala, who has learnt Bharatanatyam at the renowned Kalakshetra in Chennai, didn’t have the opportunity to showcase her skills except in her debut Tamil film Mythili Ennai Kathali.

Now, director Sekhar Kammula intends to exploit her talent in his film Life is Beautiful, where she plays a classical dance teacher. “Her role is special and captivating,” says a source close to the film.

The actor, who is making a comeback after 20 years, will surely be enjoying a role close to her heart.
