us about yourself?
am from a very normal family in Vasai, Mumbai. One day I
was walking on the road, a model coordinator spotted me
offered me a modeling assignment. I said I was not interested.
He asked me to come for the shooting of a film. I want there
and saw Abhishek Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor
working for a film. Somebody spotted me over there and offered
me a role in 'Nee Thodu Kaavali' in Telugu. I had my vacations
going on at that time, so I said yes. I acted the role of
a housewife at the age of 13.
completing 'Nee Thodu Kavali', my vacations were over. After
reaching Mumbai, the bug of acting started biting me. I
wanted to become a Hindi film heroine. I used to travel
by local trains in 2nd class to scout for the opportunities
as Bollywood heroine. I struggled for 3 months. Then T Rajender
sir signed me for 'Kadal Azivadilai' (Kurradochadu in Telugu).
And my acting career took off. I did 3 films in Tamil and
one film in Malayalam. Then I made a re-entry into Telugu
with 'Neeke Manasichanu' starring Srikanth. I just completed
'Sri Anjaneyam'. And now I am doing this film with Sumanth
is it like working for Sri Anjaneyam?
I met Krishna Vamsi sir, he told me the movie name 'Sri
Anjaneyam'. I wondered what kind of movie title it is. He
explained me that it is about Lord Hanuman. Then I was not
a great devotee of Lord Hanuman. But today I am. Today is
Tuesday and I am fasting. The whole movie was a learning
experience for me. I have not done any acting course prior
to joining the films. Doing Sri Anjaneyam is like doing
a course in acting for which I am getting paid. It was a
great fun. I am very lucky to do that film.
us about your role in 'Sri Anjaneyam'?
My character's name is 'Paddu' (Padma). She is the beauty
queen of the village. She is very rude, rough and arrogant.
She does not care about anybody. Still the people in village
are very fond of her. Nitin's character is Anji. Due to
certain incidents, she falls in love with him. She is behind
him to marry her. Since he is an ardent devotee of Lord
Anjaneya, he can't marry her. She lives for Anji and dies
was the experience of working with Nitin?
He has got innocence in him. He is still not open to the
world. We both were more excited to learn things. He is
very cooperative and we have a very good chemistry between
us. He has no airs even after giving two hits. That is the
best thing I like in him. He is always career-minded like
me. He is a very good actor. He can be a very good friend
is your role in this film with Sumanth?
I am playing Swetha - a rich, college-going, modern and
arrogant girl. She thinks money is everything. She thinks
she can buy anything for money. This is my first film in
Telugu in which you see me in western outfits. She is a
chocolate-loving girl. She eats chocolates all the time.
is it like working with hero Sumanth?
Though I worked with him for 3 days only, I felt like I
knew him for a long time. He makes me very comfortable on
sets. He is very down to earth and gets along with everybody
pretty well. After the success of 'Satyam', he is very much
charged up to make this film also a very big hit. He is
are your future projects?
I will be acting with Ravi Teja in the direction of Mehar
heard that you would be acting with Nagarjuna in 'Mass Dammunte
Kasko' along with Jyotika?
I would be very happy if I get a chance to act with Nagarjuna.
It is not confirmed yet. By God's grace, I might be signed
up for that film.
also heard that you are being considered for Allu Arjun's
Talks are on. I will let you know about it soon.
seem to have lost a bit of weight after 'Neeke Manasichanu'?
Not a bit. But I have lost around 12 Kgs for 'Sri Anjaneyam'.
heard that you have even fixed a weighing machine in your
(giggles) Who told you that? It is true. I keep a weighing
machine and watch with me wherever I go. Time and weight
are two things, which are really important to me. If I value
these two things, I can reach my destination.
are your strengths?
Positive thinking and confidence that I would shake the
are your weaknesses?
Chocolates! I am very moody. I am trying to have control
over my weaknesses.
brings you cheer when you are in bad mood?
A motivational book by Shiv Khera.
entered film industry at a small age. How are you going
to continue your studies?
Why do people study? To have a job, earn money and have
a good life. If I am having all those things and even more
than that now, why do I need to continue studying?
you think you will miss college life and fun with friends?
I think I am enjoying 3 times more that what I should have
enjoyed going to college and spending time with friends.
different is your life in Hyderabad compared to Mumbai?
It is same for me. I am not the kind of girl who takes everything
in the life as it comes. I make the life happen the way
I want it to be. Mumbai is more polluted and Hyderabad is
less polluted. This is the only difference I noticed.
did you feel when you saw yourself first time on screen
in a public theater?
My mom wept after seeing me on big screen. I also wept,
but for a different reason. My role was getting over in
the first half itself.
are earning so much money at a tender age. Are you not spoiling
What is big money? It is not come on my way yet. Even if
I get 100 Arabs, it is not a big money for me. I am a girl
who is never satisfied. My parents are proud of my earnings.
I think I am earning just 0.5% of amount I deserve. 99.5%
of money is yet to come.
us about your hobbies?
My hobbies keep changing. One steady hobby I have is reading.
I have been a champion in swimming since my childhood days.
I love dancing and chatting. I am very fond of cosmetics.

Amitab Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, John Ibrahim, Rekha, Dimple
Kapadia, Juhi Chawla, Soundarya, Ramya Krishna, Trisha,
Shriya, Genelia and Bhumika Chawla.
is your dream role?
want to do 10 different characters in one film. I heard
that Kamal Hassan done 4 characters in Maichel Madana Kama
Raju. Eddie Murphy has done 7 roles in Nutty Professor.
I heard that some other actor did 9 roles. I want to beat
it. I don't mind playing the role of even a hooker or a
2-scene role. I would do it for free if any producer offers
me this dream project. If nobody comes forward, I don't
mind producing that film myself. I sincerely hope that some
director would offer me these many roles after reading this
interview in idlebrain.com
is your ultimate goal in life?
I want to be a star of the Planet Moon. I would call the
film industry in Moon as Mollywood. One day people would
start living on planet moon. And film industry would shift
over there and I would love to star in films made on moon
for the people living on moon.
is your role model?
Nobody! I am not highly inspired by anybody. I am a fan
of many people. I try to grasp particular things from everybody.
you were given an opportunity to be born again with specific
qualities/features from various people, how would you like
it to be?
I would like to have eyes of Aishwarya, figure of Jennifer
Lopez, a boy friend like Shahrukh Khan, brains like Krishna
Vamsi, smile like Juhi Chawla and acting talent like Dimple
Kapadia in Bobby.
