Hi Karthika nice to see you again.
Your latest Telugu offering Dammu no doubt, rides on star power, would you like to tell us a bit about it?
Well, it’s a full-on big budget commercial entertainer with action, romance and comedy. I play a traditional girl from a royal family. You will have to watch the movie to know the rest.
That was a quick introduction! You are really having a great time post Ko, undeniably a runaway success in Tamil and Telugu.
All I have to say is that it’s a privilege to work with legends like Lenin Rajendran, K V Anand and Bharatiraja. I feel more confident. I have been getting roles where there is scope for performance. I am really happy to have some hits in my kitty now.
We are sure your kitty will be loaded soon, well Dammu has released with 1200 prints. It is the biggest ever Telugu release in Karnataka, opening in 150 screens. How do you feel?
I know it’s definitely a grand opening, I am so thrilled.
You shared screen space with Trisha, what do you have to say about your co star?
Trisha was wonderful I am glad he film is blessed with her presence. Although she is my senior, we were best buddies on the set. She plays the girl from the city in Dammu, she is really so down to earth.
Trisha will surely give you a tight hug, next time she meets you.
Haha, why not?
So you are now shooting for Bharathiraja’s Annakodiyum Kodiveeranum. What are your other projects in Kollywood?
I play a heroine-oriented role in Annakodiyum Kodiveeranum. It’s shot against a rural backdrop and portrays four stages of a woman’s life. As I told you I am really happy to receive a performance-oriented role again. I have two Tamil movies lined up one is under Vijay’s home banner Ghilli Production’s named Sattam Oru Iruttarai,with Vikram Prabhu and the other is opposite Vishal to be directed by Sundar C.
Fabulous, our best wishes for your upcoming movies, thanks for your time Karthika.
