Will Not Think About Image While Selecting Roles: Surabhi Lakshmi
Surabhi Lakshmi won the national film award for best actress for her performance in the Malayalam film Minnaminungu this year.

Kochi: Surabhi Lakshmi, winner of national film award for best actress for her performance in the Malayalam film Minnaminungu, said she wouldn't think about "image" while selecting a role in a movie.

She said wanted to become an actress who could easily handle any character and make them more beautiful. "I don't think about image while selecting characters.

Age of the character should not be a factor in selecting a role ", the 30-year-old actress said, addressing a meet-the-press programme organised by the Ernakulam Press Club here.

Surabhi said she handled the role of a mother of two children in a popular TV show called M-80 Moosa. "The role actually helped me to increase my value in the field", she said. It was not correct to say that handling the role of aged persons would decrease our value in the world of film and TV programmes, she said, adding, that her national award winning role in the low-budget Malayalam movie Minnaminungu was of a mother of a grown up girl.

The actress said she consider the National Film Award as a turning point in her acting career. "I am still amazed...I couldn't believe it", she said about the award. Surabhi said, she as an actress, had a dream of standing amidst flashes of camera. Surabhi was in Oman for a stage show when the award was announced in New Delhi on April 7.

She came to know about her National Award victory from the people who had come to receive her on her arrival in the Gulf country.
