The actress says she met the "Dilwale" star once during an award function in Kerala and was bowled over by him.

 

"I am a huge Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol fan. I met him once. He came to Kerala for an award function. That time I got the best actress award. I met him, danced with him. I would like to work with him. It will be a dream come true," Kavya told PTI.

 

The 31-year-old "Gaddama" star is now all set for her Malayalam film Penniyum, which releases Friday. The romantic-drama is helmed by National Award-winning filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan.

 

"This is my second film with Adoor sir. I worked with him before too. I was not nervous; I was thrilled. For all of us, it is a privilege to work with him. When with him, everyday is a learning experience," she said.

 

"Pinneyum" brings the popular pairing of Malayalam cinema - Dileep and Kavya.

 

The "Perumazhakkalam" actress says it is always a joy to work with actors who are also good friends off-screen.

 

"It is my 20th film with Dileep. He is my first hero. We didn't do any film in the last 3-4 years, but the comfort level is always there because we are friends. It helps if your co-star is also your friend," she said.

 

The actress, who made her debut with a leading role in Chandranudikkunna Dikhil (1999), says Malayalam film industry has undergone a huge change over the years.

 

"Be it regarding story, quality of films and performances, everything is changing in Malayalam cinema today. It is going on. I was part of that era and now this as well. It is constantly changing for good, and I am very happy," Kavya said.
