THEATRE OR FILMS?
I was always fascinated by people portraying different characters when they were on stage and that was when the acting bug bit me. When I was in Pune, I did many plays in Marathi and then bagged many films in Kannada, Telugu and Tamil. Choosing between the two is difficult as both the fields are completely different. But for a person like me who loves learning, I wanted to do films so I could know more about the technical aspects. DIRECTORS THAT YOU WOULD
LIKE TO WORK WITH?
I am just one film old -so, I will be greedy and say that I would like to work with everyone. Every director down with everyone. Every director down south specialises in something -Bala sir is known for bringing out the best in an actor, and Murugadoss sir too is best at what he does. Given the opportunity, I would like to work with everyone.
WHOM DO YOU IDOLISE?
It has to be none other than Sridevi. Born and brought up in Pune, I have watched many Hindi films and I loved her in every one of them.
WHAT DID YOU DO WITH YOUR FIRST PAY CHEQUE?
There is this Ganesh temple in Pune called Dagdusheth where people donate money, and all the proceeds go towards helping the poor. I felt the first cheque that I received should be put to good use, so I donated the money .
COMEDY OR PERFORMANCE-ORIENTED ROLES?
I love experimenting -so I would like to try my hand at everything, but comedy holds a special place in my heart after doing Yaaruda Mahesh. I am doing another comedy where I play a college girl. I have also signed two more films where you will see me in a completely different avatar.
