New Delhi: Veteran actor and filmmaker, Revathy, will be seen playing a differentiated character- a modern day wicca, Luna Luka, in Netflix’s romantic fantasy thriller, ‘Tooth Pari: When Love Bites’.
With an inimitable career that has spanned across three decades and more, Revathy has tried her hand at an array of roles that have consistently challenged her, and showcased her true mettle as a performer.
This time around, the actor is once again geared up to try her hand at a role she has never done before- a character that will touch upon a fairly untouched side of the pop culture canon, in India.
Now, in her all-new avatar, Revathy will be seen playing Luna Luka, a headstrong wicca who has witnessed the resurgence of blood sucking vampires in the world of humans after years of hibernation.
Sharing her experience working in a completely new genre, Revathy says, “A lot of thought has always gone behind any project that I have chosen to take up and ‘Tooth Pari: When Love Bites’, was no exception. When I heard the script, I knew it was a genre I had never traversed into earlier. This was not a normal everyday story but something new that our director (Pratim Dasgupta) had envisioned and plotted in the city of joy ‘Kolkata.’
“Exploring new and unusual formats is a challenge I love to undertake. In the series, I have portrayed a character that is strong willed, strong in her beliefs and ready to fight against all odds. I love playing such well etched out roles,” she adds.
Directed by Pratim D Gupta, ‘Tooth Pari: When Love Bites’, is bringing to the Indian audiences an impossible love story between Roy, the human dentist and Rumi, the bloody beautiful vampire, packed with romance, mystery, human obstacles and inhuman hurdles.
It will release on April 20.
