    Hot, hit and hip

    Tuesday, July 06, 2004
    She is hot in more ways than one.

    In just a year or so in filmdom, Ruthika has managed to raise eyebrows, controversies and many other things.

    She is in a sense Tollywoods answer to Mallika Sherawat.

    Making her debut in the made-for-front-benchers and adolescent youth, 6 Teens, Ruthika has made no bones (or is it flesh?) about the kind of actress that she is. Sexy and seductive, she makes her glamour obvious. But Ruthika, whose Xtra is now running to packed houses, says that there is more to her than a figure-to-die-for and a pretty pout. She is not apologetic about the kind of roles that she does. She has oomph plus some nerves of steel.

    Get a lowdown on her in this tete-a-tete:

    Are you the uncrowned sex siren of the industry now?

    I don't believe in labels. I am here to do a job. I am doing particular kind of roles. But I guess every heroine starts with these kind of films and roles. To start with, we cannot pick and choose. We are not in a position to call the shoots and make our preferences felt. We accept what comes our way. It is only the media that gives us the labels.

    You are just three films old and already a hot property. How does it feel?

    It is nice to be talked about. But I am under no illusions. I have just started out on the industry. I have a very long way to go before I can get really satisfied.

    How does it feel to be doing the same kind of glamour roles?

    As I said, I am here to do a job. I act as per the directions given to me. I don't make suggestions. I know the story and I do my part. Thats all to it.

    There are reports that your films are a bad influence on youths?

    I accept my films are glamorous. But it is only on the surface. Most of them have deep messages. They make statements on the compelling issues of the day (love and sex). Youths are told that there is an age for everything. And there is nothing permanent about the various facets of life. There is no attempt at cheap vulgarity in my movies.

    Is it really?

    How can you talk about violence without showing them on screen. How can you talk about sex without showing a bit of it? Audiences have grown up. They are not dumbos. I don't mind what the critics say. For me, my vindication is in the theatres where people are queuing up and paying money to watch my movies.

    What do you have to say about the double meaning dialogues?

    My films are not unique to that. Most films have that. Our lives have it. We have a tradition of harmless tease and fun. So why see them in bad light. Good fun without malice is acceptable to me.
