Charmi Kaur the glamorous heroine of Telugu cinema is back again in Kannada. The actress who had earlier acted with the likes of Shivarajkumar and Upendra is back after a five year hiatus. This time the actress is set to test her destiny with Diganth starrer Dev S/O Muddegowda which is all set to hit the screens on April 6. Here is an exclusive interview with the glamour queen about her comeback to Kannada cinema and her career.
So, where was Charmi Kaur all these days?
After Lava Kusha, I had so many offers in Kannada. I really wanted to do more of Kannada films, but unfortunately I had my hands full in Telugu. I couldn’t manage the dates here and I was tied up with some films both in Telugu and Hindi. Meanwhile, Indrajith came to me last year and blocked my dates much ahead, saying that he simply wanted me to act in Dev S/O Muddegowda. It was very sweet of him and I loved the way my character and the script shaped out. When everything worked out I simply couldn’t say no to the film and finally I am here!
What did you like about your role?
I am playing a choreographer in the film. The film is not only entertaining but also fresh and different. It is an out and out comedy with a serious message attached to it.
You think heroines get ample opportunity to perform?
This is a hero dominated industry and that’s how it is. A lot of commercial as well as masala movies are churned out but I don’t say that heroines don’t get any opportunity to perform. Actually speaking, I love such kind of commercial movies and always like to work in such films. I am not selfish enough to say only my character should get more importance than others, well, everyone should get good characters and that is what makes a good film.
After almost 10 years in cinema, where do you think you are
I came to the film industry when I was just 13 years old. I had to wait for my time and after Mass and Anukokunda Oka Roju, people started to realise my capability. After that I was taken seriously and I got a lot of opportunities to prove myself. Even though I have acted in a lot of hero oriented scripts, I have made my mark.
So you think you are lucky?
Definitely yes! I have been in the industry for more than 10 years and not many heroines get such an opportunity. I am looking forward to my Kannada film while waiting for Zilla Ghaziabad in Hindi. I am starting my career again and I think the next cycle has started for me.
