Hasika is director Maruti’s find; she worked in Ee Rojullo, Bus Stop and now after Priyatama Neevichata Kusalama with Varun Sandesh, she is back in Maruti’s project again. The actor from Warangal says it’s time for Telugu-speaking girls to shed their inhibitions and join film industry. “People here are warm and encouraging and I really thank producer Bellamkonda Suresh for making a movie with newcomers and total Telugu actors without importing talent from Mumbai,” she gushes The reasonably tall Hasika reveals the secret of her beauty, ‘My mother runs a beauty parlour, but she never lets me apply a dot of cream on my face. I just eat right and stay healthy.”
Abhijit has worked hard on his look and it’s showing. The main lead of Shekkar Kammula’s Life Is Beautiful has taken quite some time to sign his second film Arerey . “I connected emotionally with the story and the character I am going to portray. This offer came from producer Neelima Tirumalasetty even while I was shooting for Kammula’s movie. I didn’t want to take a decision then. I took this up finally because it had some variation from the stories I had heard.” Abhijit says he’s been working out and trying to gain weight for Arerey .
He is the most happening lyricist now and his recent hit has been Swami Ra Ra and has written songs for Greek Veerudu, Gunde Jari Gallanthaiyinde, Badshah — all big budget movies. Krishna Chaitanya will soon be making his debut a as a director and the subject he says will be a total commercial one but will reflect his sensibility. “I had come to this industry to become a director. I’ve always been associated with making movies while simultaneously writing lyrics for films. There will be no message in my movie but fun is assured.”
Anisha Ambrose marks the latest and cutest entry in Telugu cinema, a Telugu girl from Visakhapatanam, she carries the best of genes from her parents — her mother is a North Indian and father from Visakhapatanam. This amiable MBA girl left her job in Dell and joined the film industry due to her association with theatre. She loved taking part in plays in school and when an offer to act in films ( Alias Janaki ) came her way she grabbed it with both hands. Isn’t she lucky to be living in Vizag? “You bet, I stay right opposite the RK beach and what more can you ask when you wake up in the morning with the beautiful beach staring at you?”
