Krithi Shetty: My new avatar will impress all!

Krithi Shetty made a sensational debut in ‘Uppena’. Her second film, Shyam Singha Roy, also became a success. Now, her third film, Bangarraju, in which she paired up with Naga Chaitanya, is gearing up for the release. One of the busiest actresses in Telugu, Krithi Shetty is excited about the film. 

Looks like you are set to score a hattrick with Bangarraju?

I would love to have a hattrick. Who does not want to score back-to-back hits? ‘Bangarraju’ is an ideal film for a festival time as it has loads of entertainment. We all are confident about the outcome of the film.

You have played a fun role for the first time!

I laughed out loud during the narration. But it was very challenging to pull off this role. I had to be loud, utter village-based dialogues, and yet have not to look outlandish. I trusted director Kalyan Krishna and hope that my new avatar will impress everyone.

How was it working with a senior star like Nagarjuna?

I was very scared to work with Nag sir. But he welcomed me so warmly and made me feel so comfortable. He and Naga Chaitanya did not treat me as a newcomer and involved me in all the key decision-making processes of the film as well.

Dancing with Chay for commercial songs?

“Bangaara” was my first ever commercial song, and I had so many panic attacks during the shoot. But all through the shoot, Chay helped me a lot. He is a thorough gentleman and looked after me so well during the entire shoot.

What was the reaction to the kissing scenes in Shyam Singha Roy?

I was quite okay with doing those scenes as they were a crucial part of the film. But I was more worried about how the audience would react to it post me doing Bebamma’s role in ‘Uppena’. Luckily, I got a good response. 

How are you planning your career in the days to come?

‘Uppena’ has given me an acting career. I never expected to bag so many films at a time. But I have no complaints. With ‘Shyam Singha Roy’, I understood that the audience will accept me in different roles. So, I am ready to do films that challenge me as an actor.
