Debutant actress Monal Gujjar is a mighty excited now. She is over the moon on the eve of the release of her first-ever Telugu film in Vennela 1½. The former Miss Gujarat, is proud to be making her acting debut in Telugu rather than in Gujrati or Bollywood films.
She is candid enough to admit her folly vis-à-vis her opinion about the constumes worn by South Indian actors and actresses. The pretty Monal was reportedly under the impression, prior to her acting debut, that actors and actresses in Southern films have no other dresses to opt for except for dhotis and gagra-cholis (in that order) respectively.
Only after entering Tollywood did she realize that Southern films have a variety of attires for the artistes to don in each and every sequence of their films. “Really, this is what I had been told back in Ahmedabad that people down South don’t wear many variety of costumes. Now that I’m here, I realize that what I had been told earlier was far from the truth,” says Monal.
Monal is waiting for bated breath for the release of her debut film. However, even before the release of her first film, she has landed up another big project in her kitty. It appears that the girl, who has a mix of homely as well as voluptuous looks, is here to stay!
