Published on Apr 25, 2023 6:00 pm IST

Gopichand’s Rama Banam, produced by People Media Factory, and directed by Sriwass, is all set to hit the screens on May 05, 2023. Dimple Hayati plays the romantic interest of Gopichand. The film features an ensemble cast, including Jagapathi Babu, Khushbu, Sachin Khedekar, Nasser, Ali, Raja Ravindra, Vennela Kishore, Saptagiri, Kashi Vishwanath, Satya, Getup Srinu, Sameer, and Tarun Arora. Mickey J Meyer is composing the tunes. Much ahead of the release, we had a brief interaction with the film’s leading lady, and here is the transcript.


How did you become part of Rama Banam?

I signed Rama Banam while doing Khiladi. After Khiladi’s release, Sriwass Garu was a bit hesitant about me playing Bhairavi (Dimple Hayati’s character in Rama Banam) since I did a very glamorous role in Khiladi. I had a couple of screentests as the makers wanted someone who could play a girl next door kind of role. Somehow it worked out, and that’s how I came on board for this project.


How was your working experience with Gopichand Garu?

I am very happy. Gopichand Garu is a completely different person altogether. He speaks less, and I, too, don’t talk much on the sets. So, it was a bit challenging for me to work out that chemistry. Ravi Teja Garu, whom I worked with in Khiladi, is a vivacious person, and here I am, working with a totally different person. Gopichand Garu is a gentleman, and he supported me very well during the Rama Banam shoot.


How significant is your role in the film’s story, which deals with food habits?

Bhairavi might not be completely linked with the film’s story, but she is somebody who will travel with the hero. So my character will serve more fun to the audience, and then it will delve into the story. I can’t say more than this.


What homework did you do to play a vlogger in Rama Banam?

I didn’t do any homework as such. However, Sriwass Garu helped me a lot. He asked me to show how I would react to a certain situation, and that’s how he made me perform the scenes. Also, I saw the videos of a few Youtube vlogs for reference.


What are your aspirations about working in non-Telugu films?

In Tamil, I did a couple of films. But not many people knew it. Right now, I would love to experiment in different languages. If you talk about Atrangi Re, it is a Bollywood film. I would like to take up any challenge that comes my way.


Can you say a few words about People Media Factory?

People Media Factory is currently the most happening production house, and they are on a hit spree right now. Vishwa Prasad Garu and Vivek Kuchibotla Garu are the humblest people. They are very sweet people who get things done without hurting anyone.


Can you tell us about your future projects?

I am doing a Tamil film currently, and the announcement regarding my next Telugu film will be out soon. Even the Tamil movie that I am part of is yet to be announced officially. Both these films have big stars as the protagonists.
