her innate impairments in hearing and talking, Abhinaya had made a
lasting impression in the minds of movie-goers with her performance in
Sasikumar's 'Nadodigal'. The film was a runaway hit and is being made in
Telugu also. Each day, Abhinaya doesn't forget to carry her lap-top
along with her through which she can converse with her fans and friends.
When scribes provide her with their hand-written queries, she
immediately types out the answer on her lap-top. "I took to cinema
mainly due to the natural curiosity and interest I had in films from
right from my childhood. I would continue to act to see my mother's
happiness-filled face whenever she watches me speaking (albeit in a
dubbed voice) on the big screen," says the devoted daughter Abhinaya.
Abhinaya's father Anand Verma happens to be an ex-IAF personnel.
Anand has done miniscule roles in many films during their stay in
Kerala. Abhinaya, who had accompanied her father during the shooting
sessions, says that she didn't find it difficult to face the camera for
the first time for 'Nadodigal'. Now, there's another thing that Abhinaya
can look forward to.
Anand has played a minor role in Kamal Haasan's 'Unnaipol Oruvan',
due to release shortly. Abhinaya and her entire family are waiting with
bated breath for the film to release to see their father back in action
in a major film.
