I didn’t go for any kind of acting course as such. I started acting from my first movie (ninaivil nindraval). And the director agastya bharati, liked it very much. I was motivated by his compliments. I never felt need to do any course till now.but if in future, I need to hone my skills, I m open to the idea.

Tell us about your present movie “20.11”?

At present I am working for “20.11” movie Directed by Vamsi Krishna Sir, scripted by brothers Dharma-raksha (of Rakhtacharita fame). It’s a horror movie. We were trained for 10 days before starting the movie, where director and Dharma sir made sure we get the feel of the movie. The script and screenplay is amazing. In this movie I am playing the role of Rachana, a newly wedded house wife. She is very innocent girl and loves her Husband. At the same time she is easily scared.

How supporting was the cast and crew of the movie?

As its just second day of shoot, I can’t say much about the cast and crew. I have worked with only Sudheer and Jyothi till now. Jyothi is fun filled and she is always crack jokes on the sets. Sudheer is also quite dedicated at work. Director Vamshi sir is very hard working .the associate director Kiran helps me with my frame of mind and expressions. Dharma sir has excellent clarity and visualisation for each scene of the movie and he is helping us at every stage .I admire all 3 for their inputs.

What are the challenges faced by you in Tollywood?

I know many languages of south like Malayalam, Tamil, and Kannada but still Telugu is the biggest challenge for me. I will learn it soon. For example if I need a glass of water I ask my crew members how to speak out the same in Telugu. Likewise I am trying hard to speak it out.

What are your Hobbies?

What kind of roles you would like to do in future?
