Can you explain about your interest in cinema?
Cinema has always fascinated me being such a creative field. It is like a well tuned orchestra where so many different professionals, experts in their own field come together to create a project. The enormous effect cinema has on people, society, their social and cultural behavior is absolutely fantastic. I would want to reach out to the hearts and the minds of the people thus recognition and fame through the medium of cinema.
Training in acting is needed?
Training of course is important for any field but I feel acting is more about emotions and feelings of the character you portray. Training in acting may give the foundation for basic emotions however good acting according to me will depend upon getting into the skin of the character and the ability to emote the feelings according to the situation.. You can always make out the difference between a born actor and a trained actor.
What is the basic requirement to become an actress?
I would say a pleasing personality and ability to emote the feelings are very important.
In the stiff competition around what is your strategy to be in the limelight?
Acting in movies at this stage is more of a passion than profession. The film industry is huge with enough work for everybody. My only strategy at this point would be professionalism and trying to do justice to the character that I portray. All else I am sure will be taken care of by the public, critics, and the media.
In the coming years how do you want to see your career?
Bangalore has been my home for nine years .The Kannada industry has given me my 1st break for which I would ever be thankful and off course the modeling world has been my stepping stone for recognition and entry into the world of cinema besides continuing my presence on the ramp. I would also like to contribute to the Kannada and other south film industry by doing some quality projects. Any good Hindi projects will be a dream comes true.
Tell us about the interesting roles you are looking for?
I think every role is exciting and different in its own way. However I would love to portray any character which brings out the inner beauty, strength and aspirations of modern day women. As of now I am doing two Kannada films 'By2 Coffee' by director Shekar and 'Holi' by director Shankerlinga Sugnalli. I have worked for designer ads. I am a great fan of classy woman Sushmitha Sen.
Money, fame, education - what is important in life according to you?
Education of course!! And here I'm not talking of school or college education. Education for me is a much wider scope of gaining knowledge everyday and from everyone around you. It is something which blooms you into a well rounded personality.
When you achieve fame and luxury on your own in life do you want to take up social causes?
A social cause for me would not be doing charity or joining a social club but I would want to be personally involved into it whenever I could. If I get the opportunity I would certainly do something for the development of the girl child as women should get equal opportunities and empowerment. And also do something special for the senior citizens as they are the most neglected in today's society.
