us about yourself and how you entered films?
name is Nikita. I stay in Colaba, Bombay. I am a Sardarni. I have
two sisters and one brother. One of my friends was going to an
audition and she asked me to accompany her. Those guys asked me
to give audition as well. I got selected and I acted in few commercial
day when I was in a restaurant in Sun n Sand Hotel, EVV Satyanarayana
came to me and told me that I would be acting as a heroine in
his film and that's how I landed in Hai. My parents wanted
me to complete my graduation and I promised them that I would
study. I am now a full-fledged graduate in Economics from KC College,
feel that all the opportunities I got for films and ads are by
coincidence. I never wanted to become an actress. Let me speak
an example of co-incidence. Now you are speaking to me, though
you wrote badly about me in your review of 'Hai'.
is it like working in South Indian films?
'Hai' film, I worked in Fazil's film in Malayalam. Malayalam is
the most tongue-twisting language among South Indian languages.
I learnt my lines during the shooting of Malayalam film. After
learning Malayalam, I did not find it difficult to learn Telugu
language. I also did a film in Tamil. Now I am back in Telugu
with Sambaram. Now I can speak minimum courtesy sentences in Telugu
fluently like 'Ela vunnavu?', 'bagunnara?', 'emi
chestunnavu?', 'bhojanam chesaava' etc.
do you act?
is nothing but believing that it is really happening. I try to
imagine that whatever I am supposed to act is really happening
and try to react in that way with the help of director's instructions.
If my character in Hai has modern shades, the character in Sambaram
is more of a traditional one. It's a village belle character who
comes to city to do graduation. I have to be subtle and soft-spoken
in this character.
did you learn after working for 'hai'?
have not watched 'Hai' film till December of last year.
I would have mellowed down a bit in acting. I over reacted while
acting in few scenes. You learn from your mistakes. Without failure,
there is no success. I got my failure first. Now I have to get
us about the director Dasarath?
is a nice person. When I met him for the first time in Bombay,
I was yapping! Dasarath then said that he would speak with Teja
and get back to me. I was shooting for Tamil remake of 'Allari'
film in Ooty and I got a call from Teja sir. He said that I was
selected for Sambaram movie. Dasarath was in Ooty at that
time. He screen tested me in Salwar Kamiz dress. Dasarath knows
what he wants. He always has the total script ready in his hands.
I feel that every successful person should have his/her homework
us about your character in Sambaram?
go to city from a village to study and I come back. It's a lovely
character. Her name is Geeta.
are your hobbies?
love reading. I love listening to music. I like watching cricket
and tennis. I like writing a lot.
is your future plan?
want to complete my MA in Economics. I want to prove myself as
a good actress. I want everybody to know me as a nice human being.
It is more important to be a nice person than to be known as a
about marriage plans?
want to get married in about one and half years. I think marriage
makes woman a complete one. I want to be a complete woman.
you have any boy friend?
No. Not yet!
you want to enter Bollywood?
I had offers too. But I rejected.
is it so?
am not comfortable. I don't want to expose.
did you come to know about idlebrain.com?
came to me with the printouts of Jeevi reviews of 'Hai'
and asked me to go through them before signing me for Sambaram.
I guess you are partially right in the review about the film 'Hai'.
But I promise you that you would see a much matured actress in
me in 'Sambaram'.
