2. Is Endukante Premanta you most satisfying role?
Ans: Yes it is a very challenging role I have done till date. It is about an Indian girl who is based in Paris, so I had to be very sure that I get the western look in my behavior, body language and in my appearance.
3. Looking Beautiful in Karunakaran’s Visuals. Director inputs or any special care form your end.
Ans: Since my character is based in Paris, we got a chance to try something new and very western. Nishika Lulla who has been styling for all my films, has done clothes for this movie too. You can see me in dresses which I have never worn before. So much care has been taken in terms of color combination and styling.
4. How was working with Ram?
Ans: Oh! He is always a live wire on the sets. He is full of energy and always has some ideas about the scene or the whole movie. For his age, Ram is very knowledgeable and passionate about movies. Since I already did a small cameo with him in Ready, I always wanted to a full fledged film with him. It was great working with a star like Ram and we both look fabulous on screen.
5. Director Karunakaran is always good at making love stories, how was it working with him?
Ans: I had so much fun working with him. I have never seen such a humble and down to earth director in my career. After completion of every scene he goes to each and every actor and congratulates them for the scene. He is very clear about what he wants. He has projected me in a completely new way form my other movies.

Ans: Yes they are my all time favorites and I don’t even know how many times I have ended up watching DDLJ.

10. Glamorous roles or DE-glamorized, intense roles? Which one is Tamanna’s preference?
Ans: It’s up to the directors who want to cast me in these kinds of roles. I have done both kinds of roles in my films. If I get a good script which requires me to go de-glam I would surely do it, like I did in Oosaravelli where I have a de-glamorized role in the second half.
11. You are a very good speaker of Telugu. How did you pick it up? And any plans to dub?
Ans: I always feel I am from here, so obviously the language also comes with ease. I always made sure that I interact with all my assistants in Telugu just to pick the language. Touch wood I have been speaking good Telugu off late, and will surely some day dub by my own.
