Why the luck has not been your side even after five years of career?
I don't see any fault from my side. The destiny is testing my patience. I have done quite a good films and television serials.
What is the demand of the Kannada film industry?
'Adjustments' is what worries me. I do not want to explain more about it. We Kannada girls are ready to adjust any environment for showcasing our talent but nothing other than that. You know what kind of 'adjustments' are asked.
How long you want to wait?
I have the wonderful offer of dexterous director Sunilkumar Desai 'Ramya Chaitra Kala'. I am pinning more hopes on this film because a lot of artistes and technicians have made it big working under Sunilkumar Desai. He is like an institution. What we get out of crash course in acting that is possible to get from a director like Sunilkumar Desai.
'Ramya Chaitra Kala' has consumed a lot of time…..
It has taken more than one year. That is Desai style of working. He will not allow a single mistake to happen.
People say it is difficult to work under Sunilkumar Desai…..
He is a tough director. But he gives results. Right from the days of Utkarsha, Sangarsha, Nishkarsha, Sparsha, Prathyartha, Nammura Mandhara Hoove, Prema Raga Haadu Gelathi, Parva, Marma he has been a workaholic. When we adjust with him there is nothing like that.
Nandhita give a short background of yours?
I have finished II PUC and looking out for a correspondence course in BA in Hindi. Hindi language is my favorite. At this time I got a chance to play a small role in super hit Kannada film 'Mangalyam Thanthunaanena'. I played the wife of comedy hero Mandya Ramesh. My parents are working in KPTCL. My elder sister is married.
What is your nature?
I don't mix up with people. I want to be alone always.
What happened after that?
I was picked for the Kannada film 'Avaran Bit Ivaran Bit Avaryar'. The role was quite good. But expected things did not turn up. I played in Bhakta Ayyappa, Kotigobba, Vijayasimha and then in Tamil film Ambattu Imbattu…., of cameraman Ashok Kashyap. I have finished the project of 'Ramya Chaitra Kala' and now signed 'Avanandre Avanu' opposite Naveen Mayoor.
Is it true that you have underwent an operation for your nose?
Yes. I got it operated from Dr.Venkatesh at DG Hospital. It was a simple operation that costed Rs.30000 for me. It is called the bone reduction operation. I have taken rest for one month.

Money is not the only important factor.

What type of roles suits you?
I am looking for variety. People should say I can suit all types of roles. I have cried, laughed and done comedy roles also so far. I am playing a rash character in television serial Preethi Illadha Mele.

No. This is the worry.
What about marriage?
