Varsha Bollamma to test her drumming skills – The Tamil actress will soon make her Telugu debut with Choosi Choodagane, which is directed by Sesha Sindhu.
Actress Varsha Bollamma tells us that the makers of the new venture Choosi Choodagane approached her after watching her Tamil film 96. She then shared with us why her role in the new film gets her nervous.
“I play a drummer and a music director in the film, and I don’t have any idea about drumming. So even as I was a little nervous about the role, the director and producer shared with me that they were confident about me picking it up,” she says, adding that she learnt the basics of drumming from a band. Varsha has previously done a few Malayalam and Tamil films. “Yes, in Tamil, my role Gayatri in Bigil, which stars Vijay sir, brought me some good word,” she says.
Then talking about how much she’s learnt from Vijay, she says, “He is very reserved and silent off the camera, but in front of the camera, he is very energetic and completely focussed on his role.”
Talking about her Telugu film, Varsha states that all characters in the story get equal importance.
“Everyone thought that the film is a love triangle, but it is actually about something else. You have to watch it on the screen to know,” she says, teasingly. Varsha will play the same role as she did in 96, which was remade into Telugu as Jaanu.
In the meanwhile, Varsha has also signed another Telugu film opposite Anand Deverakonda. “I have to sing a song and the character speaks in a complete Guntur slang. Initially, I was doubtful that I could take it on and to pull off that role, but the director later decided to dub for my role, so I did that film,” she says, who is now trying balance between Tamil and Telugu films.
