Thank you for the compliments. I do give a lot of importance to script and my role. I know I can’t be choosy at this stage in my career, but I want to be proud of the work I do. Hence I stay away from anything that will make me regret.
In real life are you Sandhya of Kandireega or Vishalakshi of Yuvatha? Both characters are well received by Telugu audience
Haha, I am a bit of both. Naughty like Sandhya from kandireega, mature like Visalakshi from yuvatha.
Kollywood and Tollywood, which is more exciting?
Both industries are dear to me. Wherever I get good films I will work hard and give my best.
How is your stint with Mollywood shaping up?
I have been busy with Tollywood and Kollywood . When I get a good film in Mollywood I’ll gladly do it because that’s where I did my first film.
Have you watched ‘India’s Daughter’Documentary, your take on female atrocities and society’s reaction to the same?
Everyone in India claims that it is a progressive nation. I beg to differ. We still have a lot of backward practices and wrong activities going on towards women. Make chauvinism is at its peak. On the flip side there are strong women making a mark and speaking for the weak. Social networking is high. People can share and spread awareness. It’s time to speak up.
Three things you love about Tollywood
I love Tollywood because of the love it has given me. I have had a wonderful experience working in films here. Also the kind of films that are made, entertainers, makes me love what I do. It’s great to watch a film for 3 hours and forget your problems. So entertainment quotient is high. That’s great about Tollywood
