All set to flirt with silver screen

Infectious charm, impeccable presentation and of course, looks. Adding these to her desire to excel, Anasuya Bharadwaj anchored her way to popularity that very few can attain on Telugu television.

She clearly tops the list of Telugu telly anchors, a spot which she earned in a short span of time.

And such is her popularity that the big screen kept beckoning her to which she has responded positively. Anasuya is all set to be seen in the company of Akkineni Nagarjuna in the movie Soggade Chinni Naayana .

Another movie Kshanam is almost done and completing the post-production work for a release in the next couple of months.

Did she find much difference in working for small screen and the silver screen? “Not at all for it’s the camera that I have to face and I know how to flirt with it,” she says.

However, as far as the television shows are concerned, she has complete control, but she has to share space with others in films. “In my TV shows, I am the queen and in films, I am a character along with others,” she says. In her six-year tryst with television, Anasuya has been a VJ with Maa Music, has read news on Sakshi TV, hosted several shows on different entertainment channels and is the most sought after host for events such as awards presentations and audio release. A mother of two children, she juggles between her professional and personal commitments. “My family supports me completely and it’s a great boon. However, my ambition is to be a good homemaker and a good mother,” she says.

Focus on career

An MBA graduate with specialisation in HR, her tryst with the camera began on spotting an advertisement seeking anchors. She responded and soon found herself in the spotlight. But how did she earn the stardom so quickly?

“There are others who took a long time to make a mark for themselves. If I took less time means I put that much more effort and focus on my career,” she points out.

Anasuya’s repertoire on the telly has been wide ranging from a humorous ‘Jabardast Katharnak Comedy’ to women’s show ‘Modern Mahalaxmi’ to children’s contest ‘Chota Champion’.

If all goes well on the silver screen, will she be off television? “No way for however much taller I might grow I have to stand on my feet. TV is where I found my footing, it is my first love and I can never give it up,” adds Anasuya.
