Janaki's Bhimasenan marks a new beginning for women

Janaki Nair, a native of Thiruvananthapuram, is marking out a new space for women in Kathakali. The gifted artiste essayed the role of Bhimasenan in Kalyana Sougandhikam recently. Though this role used to be the preserve of male actors, nobody in the audience could realize that a woman was playing the difficult role as she played it so well. Earlier, Janaki had performed the roles of Ravanan, Krishnan and Arjunan also. The artiste, who has a masters degree in media management from UK, has been training in Kathakali for the last 15 years. She shares details of her tryst with Kathakali with Morning Show viewers.
