Kalamandalam Gopi on his Pacha Vesham (Green characters of Kathakali)
Kalamandalam Gopi in an interview with Raghu P said, according to Kathakali viewers of Kerala, Pacha vesham (Green characters) of Kathakali suites me well. My Guru late Kalamandalam Padmanabhan Nair has appreciated my Kathi vesham, but not many others. The pacha veshams demand more from the artist. The scope of acting is more for those characters. Artist gets more freedom in acting too.
