Some Lesser Known Facts About K Mahashweta
- Born in Tamil Nadu’s Tirupur district, K Mahashweta is a South Indian child actress who has twice been honoured with international best child actress awards for her acting in Malayalam short films.
- As of 2020, she has acted in four Malayalam short films. All of these are backed with a hard-hitting social message.
- She acted in her first film when she was just nine years old. In an interview with The Times of India, she opened up about how she embarked on her acting career at such a young age. She said,
When I was four years old, I used to watch movies on television and I would try to imitate the actors or actresses. I love watching movies in all the languages and I would enact scenes from the movies in front of my parents. They would appreciate my acting. I had a habit of saving money and I would never spend it on anything. One day I gave all my savings to my father and told him that I wanted to act in movies. Seeing my interest and passion for acting, my father approached his director friend Sujith Das from Kerela, who gave me my first break in the short film, Aarodu Paruyum.”
