After the success of Maruthi’s E Rojullo, Reshma became a house hold name in Tollywood. This talented actress is once again back with her latest film Pratighatana. Reshma plays an important character in this film, which has Charmee in the lead role. We caught up with Reshma for an exclusive interview, and let’s see what she has to say.
Firstly, Ugadi wishes to you. How special is Ugadi to you ?
Oh ! I love this festival, as I have a sentiment connected to it. Both my first two films have released during Ugadi, and now Pratighatana is releasing post Ygadi, so I am equally excited.
Any reason for postponing this film from April 5th to 18th
As many big budget films were releasing during this time, we did not get enough screens to release our film. Left with no choice, we had to move our release to April 18th.
Tell us something about the film?
Our film is based on a real life story, which is close to the Nirbhaya incident. There is a social message in our film, which will make everyone sit right up and support the women power.
Can you elaborate about your role in the film ?
I play a innocent college going village girl, who fights for the injustice done against her friend. This is a complete performance oriented role, which I took as a challenge and did it to the best of my abilities.
How was it working with Tammareddy Bhardwaj?
Oh ! it was a wonderful experience working with a veteran director like him. The way he has dealt with this subject is incredible, and I have personally learnt so much from him during the filming of Pratignatana.
Share your working experience with Charmee ?
It was such an amazing experience working with a star like Charmee. I treat her like an elder sister, and she helped me so much during the making of this film.
You have always been associated as an bubbly actress. Any special reason in accepting a serious role like this?
This was a such a good opportunity for me to showcase my acting skills. As I have done romantic roles in the past, I took it as a challenge to portray a tough role like this.
Any last words regarding your film.
Those who think Pratighatana is a serious film will be mistaken. Our film has enough dose of entertainment, with a social message nicely interlaced in it.
With that we rounded off our interview with Reshma, and wished her the best of luck for the future.
