Tell me something about your character in Shiva.
In Shiva I play the character of a crime reporter, who is a very strong and mature girl. She is sincere and dedicated towards her work. There is also a love angle here between her and Shiva. However, she doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t really expect too much from this relationship.
What is it that defines your character the best in Shiva?
There is a dialogue in the film, which says ‘
She is not scared of politicians, the police or even gangsters. In fact, I also got a chance to do some action in Shiva. In the climax scene I actually lift and throw a big stone at the villain.
What was your input for playing the character of a journalist?
I followed Ramuji’s instruction and my intuition. I also met and observed a few reporters before shooting for the film. I had to know why they ask so many questions. What do they keep in their purse? I have tried to follow the body language of the journalists. I also learnt that journalists always maintain eye contact. There is a sense of dignity and pride in every journalist’s body language.
The normal image created about you is that of a sexy glamorous girl. Are you satisfied with it?
I am an actress. Looking glamorous and hot is a positive point that should be possessed by any actress big or small. But at the same time I don’t just want to look sexy. I want to do a variety of roles.
Have you signed any more films with Ram Gopal Varma?
I am doing Go with Ramuji. I had signed it with James but for some reason it has been delayed. I have been paired opposite a newcomer in Go.
Do you have a contract with him?
When I met Ramuji for the first time he said, ‘I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t want you to sign any papers with anybody, including me.’ So I have no agreement with anybody.
