Young Malayalam actress Esther Anil's greatest dream is to travel across India with no strings attached. The actress, who had proved her mettle as a child artiste, had travelled a lot since childhood to many places from Pullikanam hill station in Kerala to Dalhousie town in the foothills of the Himalayas. Interestingly, many of Esther's indelible moments of her life are intertwined with the journeys she had undertaken.
Most memorable trip
Esther is an avid traveller and to date she has gone on journeys only with her family members. The actress first hit the road when she was studying in class II and the tour was to Pullikanam in Idukki district in Kerala. “My father has an album loaded with memories of my first trip. After seeing photos of that tour time and again we decided to revisit Pullikanam and the two days we spent there are very precious to me,” says Esther.
The actress' most-favoured tourist centre in Kerala is Wayanad, which happens to be her home town too, and her mother hails from Kottiyoor in Kannur district. The actress, who had essayed striking roles in Mohanlal-starrer ‘Drishyam’ and ‘Drishyam 2’, is very lucky as both Wayanad and Kottiyoor are naturally endowed with rivers, mountains, forests and waterfalls.
“No matter where I go, there is no place that can beat Wayanad and Kottiyoor,” she asserts. The actress, who has two brothers –Evan and Eric, loves to hit the road whenever she is not busy with studies and film shooting.
Esther and her family members usually chalk out a one or two-day trip, that too at short notice. They have been to Munnar, Valparai and Malakaparai, among others. The actress along with her parents and brothers went on a journey to north India in 2018. It was a 15-day tour that covered Delhi, Dharmashala, Dalhousie and other places of interest.
