Nithiin and Raashi Khanna’s upcoming family entertainer, Srinivasa Kalyanam, is scheduled for an August 9th release. On this occasion, we had a brief interaction with Raashi. Here is the transcript.
Q) What are the aspects that made you accept this film?
A) After Tholiprema, when I was looking for a good film which will showcase me in a different avatar, director Satish Vegesna met me with this script. Soon after listening to the script, I immediately got connected to the emotional content of the story and said okay to do the film.
Q) Tell us about the film?
A) It’s a beautiful love story which leads to a marriage. The film is completely filled with family emotions and has many sub-layers in it. I watched the film last night along with my team and I was totally blown away by how the director only took the script to the next level with his presentation. Especially, the climax sequence was so touching and moved each one of us. Soon after watching the film, I touched my director’s feet. I’m sure that the audience will also feel those emotions while watching the movie in theaters.
Q) Tell us about your role?
A) I’m playing Siri, a family oriented girl who falls in love with Vasu. My character has a lot of scope for performance. Moreover, you will see my subtle performance throughout the film.
Q) Tell us about your hero Nithiin?
A) He is a very co-operative co-star. We both used to prepare our dialogues before going on sets and tried to give our best. Nithiin’s acting in the climax sequence will standout for sure.
Q) Apart from the lead pair, who else did prominent roles in this film?
A) As I said, the film has a huge star cast in it. Rajendra Prasad garu, Prakash Raj garu, Jayasudha garu, Sithara garu, Nandita Sweta and the list goes on. All the actors have equal part in the film.
Q) A few words about the music?
A) Yeah, the music is a big hit already. I personally like the marriage song and a duet which was shot on me and Nithiin. Mickey has done an amazing work both songs and background score-wise.
Q) Next projects?
A) I signed a project in Telugu which will be announced by the makers very soon. Apart from it, I have three films in Tamil which may release sometime this year.
