Former child actor Baby Shamili has now dropped the Baby tag and is simply Shamili. The former star of Mani Ratnam’s Anjali, in which she played a mentally-challenged child and for which she won a National Award, has bagged a role in Rama Narayanan’s new movie Kutti Pusasu. She will begin shooting as soon as she finishes her film-making course in Singapore in April.

Shamili made her first adult appearance last year opposite Sidharth in Oy! This was her first appearance for nine years – what caused the big break? “I used to be very busy as a child artist,” she says, “But my dad and mom insisted on my education. So I took a break for a while and completed my education.”

Shamili has happy memories of her time as a child actor. “On the sets, Chiranjeevi sir and Sridevi aunty used to play with me and give me chocolates,” she smiles, “Moreover, in most films I acted I used to have pet animals.”
