THE RED MUSTANG Character profile #1: Dulika Jayamanne plays ANU WANIGASEKERA.
38-year old Anu is the epitome of the successful Sri Lankan businessman. Born into wealth, he grew up in Kandy, where he attended an elite school. He was captain of the cricket team which he led to victory in ’97. He excelled in academia, frequently topping his batch and winning the Mathematics prize three years in a row. Despite his high SAT grades, he was rejected from several top US universities and ended up at a small college in Alabama. He was the head of a fraternity, Iota Nu Delta, which was eventually barred for misconduct. Anu went on to gain one of the highest GPA scores on campus and landed himself a cushy job on Wall Street. He was fired a number of years later for undisclosed reasons.
Upon his return to the Motherland – and amidst much protest on his part – he had an arranged marriage to a Kandyan girl from a high caste, much like himself. Despite not making much time for his wife, he is keen to maintain strong ties with his father-in-law. He recently had a baby boy whom he loves and spends his much of his time with.
His pride and joy is his red 2017 Ford Mustang: a Rs 24m car he bought himself as a birthday present. He often zooms around town in it, to the frustration of everyone else around him.
As part of business expansion Anu is hiring a batch of ‘super graduates’. He is currently conducting interviews…
A dark drama, THE RED MUSTANG follows a young, desperate graduate who gets more than she bargains for when she goes for an interview with a powerful company CEO. The short film previews this December. Event link in bio. #theredmustangcmb #shortfilm #comingsoon #srilankancinema #indpendentfilm #sexualharassment
