'I Told My Parents I'll Give It A Try...' : Manasa

Friday, August 2, 2013 • Telugu Comments

Maruthi has a distinction to his credit, of introducing the most number of Telugu girls to the industry in the recent times. Manasa Himavarsha is a Telugu girl, the third being introduced by Maruthi. Born in Vijayawada, brought up in Chennai, this girl is bubbly with round face, quite lives up to the expectations from a Telugu girl, of course with an urban touch. But she says Maruthi's team has seen a rebellious look and zeroed in on her for their movie 'Romance'.

She says she is cautious about choosing roles coz she wants to see the response she gets from the audience before signing any further. IndiaGlitz’ chat with her…

Fortunate to be a Maruthi heroine.

I’m happy to have worked with Good cinema group and Maruthi garu in my debut coz they know how to present a new girl to audience.

Yes, I am a Telugu girl.

I am born in VJA and brought up in Chennai. I did a reality show challenge and then id id a portfolio. Maruthi saw the pics and asked me to give an audition. My rebellish featurtes were apt for the role int his move.

Lola is an aggressive woman...

My role Lalitha, nicknamed ‘Lola’ has two shades. One, a college going lovable girl and the other, an aggressive woman who goes to any extent to get her love back. I meet the hero, fall in love, grow close but when he dumps me for another gal, that’s when the negative shades in my character start showing up. I try to create obstacles and the story revolves around this.

My respected Co-Stars...

Prince is quite a down to earth in spite of his success. Dimple is quite experienced. They sensed that I am inexperienced, helped me grow out of it and do a good job. I thank my co-stars.

Music rocks...

Music is a great asset to this movie. Sai Karthik is a genius in the making. He is spot on, versatile and his music grows on you. He is paralelly doing Paisa as well but look at the variation.

Yes, Film industry is not easy to get on...

My parents have been very supportive. They initially told me to think twice before leaping since we don’t have anyone to back me in the industry. I said I’d give it a try and if I can’t make it, will come back. I am happy for the response I am getting with my very first film. Gives me a feeling I am here to stay…

Thanks to Maruthi

True, Telugu gals are not identified very often and offered the lead role. But the trend is changing with Reshma, Nandita, Anjali etc. Maruthi has given intro to many Telugu gals and I thank him for chosing me for this film.

My Director Swamy...

Swamy is a great writer and the dialogues will be enjoyed a lot. He is a quiet, simple and honest person

I say ‘Romance’ is a life comedy...

Adult comedy… Youthful entertainer, based on daily life incidents. You will have th fun but nothing vulgar about it.

Maruthi is about diversity

This film will raise the bar Maruthi has created before. He’s been showing variations from film to film. Romance will give a great message to youth and families as well

I am cautious about signing...

I wanted to wait for the release of ‘Romance’, check the feedback from audience, correct my failures and move on after the result. So, haven’t signed any as yet.

Signoff...

Romance is releasing on friendship day, Please go along with your friends, watch the film and bless us. Thank you…
