Q: Did you always want to become an actor?
A: I used to get offers since the time I was in college itself, but at that time I didn’t take it much seriously because I didn’t know if I could act. So what happened was that for the show Putta Gowri Maduve, Ramji sir had offered me a role but I had to politely turn it down owing to my studies. Of course, later I did regret the decision when the show aired. After that, I didn’t try for anything following which Paaru was offered to me.

Q. What is your most memorable experience on the show until now?
A. One memorable incident I can recollect is the first day when I shot with Akhila Amma, I mean Vinaya Amma (Vinaya Prasad). All cast members were there on the first day of the shoot and I had to act in front of everyone for the first time. Since I am a new-comer I was extremely scared about what will happen. But, all the artists helped me and made it easy for me. Even with Vinaya Amma, each and every scene I have done with her she has supported me and taught me how to go about it from scratch. In a way, it was a very happy experience for me that day.

Q. Was playing the role of a village girl a challenge for you?
A. Yes, it was because I have been born and brought up in the city. So for me, it was slightly challenging to play the role of a village girl. Dileep sir had conducted a workshop for me before the show started so after working on myself thoroughly I started playing the role. So what happened was, when Dileep sir saw me, he knew that instant that the for the role he is looking at I will be the apt person. Then he started making me work on my body language, my speech by conducting workshops. I was even asked to believe that I was Paaru even off-sets to practise staying in character while shooting. I had to even stop speaking English so much to stay in tune with what was needed from the role. Speaking more Kannada was encouraged in the workshops as well.

Q. What do you think about your character as Paaru?
A. Well, she is a girl who doesn’t hold anything back and says what is on her mind. If someone else is in trouble, she goes out of her way to help them. Paaru is also someone who doesn’t like to trouble anyone for her sake.
