Re­flec­tion on Chathurika Peiris

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - LIFE -

This is not a highly es­teemed eu­logy about ex­tremely pop­u­lar ac­tress Chathurika Peiris. But a sim­ple and a mod­est salu­ta­tion to a hum­ble artiste who has contributed enor­mously from her in­born tal­ents to the field of arts in Sri Lanka, es­pe­cially in tele dra­mas, and some pop­u­lar Sin­hala movies in the last decade or so. She was ad­judged the best ac­tress at the re­cent State Tele Awards Cer­e­mony for her role in Swayan­jatha.

Cur­rently Sri Lankan tele­vi­sion drama fans of all sorts are blessed with the priv­i­lege of view­ing and en­coun­ter­ing their ev­er­green sen­sa­tional sen­si­tive leg­endary icon of the mini screen, Chathurika Peiris, the charm­ing ac­tress, through the spell­bound tele­vi­sion drama se­ries, ‘Sepa­lika’, ‘Isuru San­gra­maya’, and ‘Hiru Thanivela’, where once again her nat­u­ral charm­ing in­no­cence is be­ing un­veiled. Chathurika Peris is not a stranger to Sri Lankan tele drama lovers. In all her per­for­mances, she be­comes the spot­light, cen­ter of at­trac­tion, and the dy­namic vi­brant bright spark, the main char­ac­ter around which the sto­ries re­volve. Chathurika knows the art of blend­ing her act­ing sen­sa­tions ac­cord­ing to the syn­op­sis and the sto­ry­line of her tele­vi­sion dra­mas to give the best for her lov­ing fans. From her part, she has al­ways de­ter­mined to give the finest to the tele drama in­dus­try.

She is be­ing loved by peo­ple, young­sters, and el­ders alike. The sim­ple au­then­tic rea­son for this is her in­no­cence and un­end­ing sim­plic­ity and sen­si­tiv­ity, as a lov­ing ac­tress, who seems to have sensed the pulse of her fans whose hearts she had won through her mes­mer­iz­ing and res­onat­ing per­for­mance on screen.

The hum­bled and the poor in spirit are loved by peo­ple. It is this in­te­rior dis­po­si­tion of Chathurika that has been en­vis­ag­ing and ex­em­pli­fy­ing in and through the very roles and characters she had been giv­ing life into with her ex­cel­lent per­form­ing skills in al­most all her tele­vi­sion dra­mas.

Chathurika Peris stands unique in her per­for­mance in ev­ery cre­ation be­cause she is en­dowed with in­spi­ra­tion to live in a range of emo­tions within her characters in her dra­mas, mak­ing them ex­tremely nat­u­ral.

Chathurika Peris is a gifted artiste of var­ied di­men­sions. She is also a songstress blessed with a melo­di­ous voice, though she rarely sings, ex­cept in live TV pro­grams. She ar­tic­u­lates her ac­cent even when she sings in Hindi. She is pre­cise and elo­quent in her ex­pres­sions. This pic­ture of Chathurika was cap­tured by Anusha de Silva dur­ing the re­cent ‘Ma­hasamayama’ drama bal­let at the Nelum Pokuna The­atre in Colombo.

Let her com­mit­ment be an ex­am­ple for all bud­ding ac­tresses.
