Saguni’s leading lady Pranitha Subhash says that her comfort level matters most when she decides to sign a movie. Currently busy with the Jai-starrer Enakku Vaaitha Adimaigal and also a film with Atharvaa, she’s only interested doing projects with a strong story line.
Already having a a taste of various commercials in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada, the actress says Enakku Vaaitha Adimaigal is different from her previous ones going as far to say “It doesn’t have heavy fights, and dance sequences, but there’s a strong story-line. Having shot in Puducherry and Kodaikanal, we completed the film quickly. That helped me maintain the rhythm of my character. I play an IT employee in the film,”
When asked about Atharvaa’s film in which she is currently engaged, she was all smiles: “It is in the shooting stage. It’s good that I am finally getting to act with actors my age. When I act alongside senior artistes like Suriya, Karthi, Mahesh Babu and Pawan Kalyan, I call them ‘sir’. Having co-artistes of more or less the same age group is fun because they are chilled out.”
The Brahmotsavam (2016) actor says she wants to do films in the south, since the best part of working in a Tamil film is learning the language, she grins. “Enaku nalla Tamil theriyum. Aana, dub panra alavukku illa” (I understand Tamil well, but not to the level I can dub for myself). I like the people because they are protective of their language, culture, identity and traditions”
According to Pranitha’s, there is no regional divide in cinema. “We have a mix of actors everywhere who act — both in Hindi films and other languages. Our film industry is huge. Expanding your horizons in different languages is always cool,”
When asked about the kind of projects she wants to undertake she says “I don’t choose films on the basis of its language, but purely on its subject and how the filmmaker will be handling the subject. As an actor I want to explore more options. I believe in doing experimental roles. I want my film journey to be filled with lots of surprises. As long as the story is good, I don’t think the language should matter.”
