Ruler is all set for a big release this Friday and Sonal Chauhan plays one of the leads. We caught up with her for a brief interview and here is the transcript.
How is it working with Balakrishna?
During the time of Legend, I hardly knew anything about the Telugu film industry. I only knew that Balakrishna garu is a superstar and with a very frightened mindset, I met him on the sets of Legend. Within a few minutes, he made me very comfortable. After a gap, I got a chance to work with him again and this time and things have been very easy for me as I know him personally as well. He is a very caring superstar.
What is so different about this commercial entertainer?
Generally, Balayya is known to be a mass star but in this film, he is playing a class hero as well. He will be seen in two different shades which are poles apart and will impress his fans and critics at the same time. His fights as a rowdy cop are superb in the film.
Your role in the film?
I play the character of Harika who is a very level headed girl and is pretty sure what she wants in life. My role has a special edge and that will be showcased in the film. I got to perform various emotions in the film and my comedy scenes are quite special.
What made you sign the film in the first place?
When I came to know that the film has Balakrishna, I okayed it right away. I clearly knew that I would have a special role and once I was on board, I got a detailed narration about my role and the story which I loved completely.
Why are you doing same kind of roles in Telugu?
I feel that I have been typecast in such roles these days. I am dying to do some real girl next girl roles and would love to prove myself in different roles. Everyone wants to be diverse and showcase their talents.
I am doing a Hindi film and a web series as of now. I have also signed a Telugu film which will be announced very soon.
