    Karpal’s faithful aide until the end – Bernama

    The name Michael Cornelius Selvam Vellu may not be as famous as the man he was serving – renowned lawyer Karpal Singh – but his sacrifice will remain in the annals of Malaysian history for his devotion to his boss.

    Above all, Karpal was a great father

    For as long as I have been aware of this thing called “politics,” I have been aware of Karpal Singh. As a boy, my image of him was often humorous, based as they were on classic Lat cartoons. A particular favourite has Mr Karpal looking gigantic in full court regalia holding aloft a coconut scrapper with one superhuman hand while pointing... …

Born in 8 April 1991 in Kuala Lumpur, city girl Shima Anuar is one of the greatly active young actresses in the local movie industry to date. This year alone, she had already appeared in more than two Metrowealth productions which includes "Sumpahan Kum-Kum", "7 Petala Cinta" and the most recent one being established director Ahmad Rusli Khadri's romantic comedy, "Hanya Aku Cinta Kau Seorang", alongside local movie sensations Aeril Zafrel and Nuremy Ramli. The movie may not have been the blockbuster hit that was expected, but a star does not have to be in consistently well-written movies in order to shine, as demonstrated through Shima Anuar's performance. Cinema Online had the opportunity to catch up with the young actress at the preview of "Hanya Aku Cinta Kau Seorang" recently and talked with her about her latest movie and her career direction.

Cinema Online had an interview with Shima Anuar at TGV Sunway Pyramid, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia.

Q: Hi, Shima. How are you feeling today?
Shima Anuar:
Great! I can't wait to watch my movie with the audience later!

Q: Can you tell us what is so special about "Hanya Aku Cinta Kau Seorang" and why should people watch it?
Shima Anuar:
Well, it's a very romantic love story. Teenagers are definitely going to love it and most importantly, you will learn more about platonic love.

Q: Can you describe your character in the movie?
Shima Anuar:
I'm playing an enthusiastic photographer called Zizi. Basically in the movie, I'm giving a hand to Zizi's brother, Iqwal (Fezrul Khan) to find him a new lover through an online dating website.

Q: How was your working experience with director Ahmad Khadri?
Shima Anuar:
This is not the first time I'm working with Abang Ollynn [Ahmad Khadri]. We are very familiar with each other. He's an open-minded director who is willing to listen to the cast's opinions and accept them if it is feasible in order to produce a much satisfying production.

Q: What are your goals in your career so far?
Shima Anuar:
Since I can still be considered a newcomer in this competitive industry, I really hope that the audience will recognize my acting skills from all the movies that I was involved in. It's not easy for people to accept me in such a short period, therefore, I will work harder together with my fellow compatriots in order to present more good movies to the local audience.

Q: What is your favourite movie of 2012?
Shima Anuar:
Besides "The Avengers", I would say I liked "This Means War". It was really fun to watch two guys fighting over a woman in that movie because it is usually two women fighting over one guy.

Q: Thank you, Shima.
Shima Anuar:
Thank you, Cinema Online!
