‘Raju Gari Gadhi 3 is not my comfort zone, yet I did my best’: Avika Gor – During an interaction, ‘Balika Vadhu’ actor Avika Gor spoke at length about her upcoming Telugu film, ‘Raju Gari Gadhi 3‘.
After making an impressive debut as Anandi in Balika Vadhu at the age of 11, there was no turning back for Avika Gor. She then became a part of several TV shows, then went on to star in a few Bollywood films. About a few years ago, she made her Telugu movie debut as the female lead in the film Uyyala Jampala released in 2013. Now, she is gearing up for her latest Telugu outing Raju Gari Gadhi 3.
During an interaction with The Hindu, when Avika was asked about the horror flick, she stated, “I am experiencing the kind of nervousness and excitement that I faced for my first film now. Whatever project touches my heart, I will do. It doesn’t matter if it is a film, a television serial or a web series; I want to do all languages. As an actor, it is important to go all out and try it. I wanted to be a part of Laado and it was impactful. A daily soap consumes 30 days and I was welcomed with open arms.”
When asked about how she bagged the role, Avika replied, “My dates were blocked in Mumbai and I heard Tamannah was the first choice for this role, then one day I was called for narration and things moved briskly. I had no reason to say no. I got scared with every scene and I think the audience will feel the same. I have never tried this genre so far and in this film, you will see me screaming and yelling. I was so scared initially, I thought I would have sleepless nights. At home, I always go under the blanket to see horror films but now I like this idea of scaring people. It is so much fun now.”
She concluded by talking about the challenging roles she takes up. Avika said, “People have seen me since I was eight. The same kind of acting doesn’t work. I haven’t learnt acting in a school and what I know is what I picked up on the way. Raju Gari Gadhi 3 is not my comfort zone, yet I did my best.”
