When came to the cinema years later, Shanthi Krishna was open about the acting competition behind the film. In the words of the star, only the names and faces of Manju Warrier or Parvathy Thiruvothin appear in the minds of directors when thinking about women-centric films in Malayalam cinema today. But Shanti Krishna has said that actresses like us are also waiting for female-centric characters like that. The actor spoke about this during an interview.
Moreover, there was less competition between the heroines at that time. Because everyone had a fixed area. The other heroines who were with me when I was acting in the film were Ambika, Jalaja, and Geeta. If there is a slightly modern glamorous character in a movie they will call Ambika. The more sad daughter image for me and Jalaja. Geeta is one of the two, so there was no need for a rivalry between us. But that is not the case in today’s film industry. Today there is a huge competition going on between each and every one of them.
