Experience: -In my first Telugu movie 'Jai Bolo Telangana', produced and directed by
Mr. N Shankar and released in early 2011, I have performed the character of 'Katthi' who is an educated & playful girl (from 'Telangana' region of Andhra Pradesh) but, having lived & studied at Delhi, is oblivious to the underlying socio-political issues of her state. At Osmania University, as the closest friend of the heroine (from ‘Andhra’ region) ‘Katthi’ grasps the issues of Telangana-movement, and becomes a part of it. Mr. N Shankar has made revolutionary Telugu movies like Sriramulayya, Encounter and Jayam Manadera. His earlier films have won Nandi Awards, Cinegoer’s Association Annual Awards, Manikchand Filmfare Awards, Bharatamuni Awards etc. ‘Jai Bolo Telangana’ was screened at South Asian Film Festival at Goa in September 2011, and awarded Nandi Award in Oct 2012. Though politically contentious, the movie did very well, and I got my first credit in the Telugu movie world.
