Lavanya doesn’t agree one bit when one draws her attention to the similarities between Andala Rakshasi and Geetanjali . “I’m very proud to be a part of the film. Tell me one scene that has been taken from Geetanjali ? Geetanjali is a beautiful film of course. But because it was shot in a hill station it’s getting compared.

People had high hopes. When you compare it with a legendary film, the outcome is totally different. Hanu is a brilliant director and he let me be Mithuna. I had a very clear picture of what I had to do. My parents were happy because it’s a clean film but I guess people will take time to digest the climax.” The Dehradun beauty apparently told the prospective producers to get in touch with her only after Andala Rakshasi is out, and now she’s busy with story sessions.
