Progressing: Haripriya

These days, she has tirelessly been travelling between Hyderabad and Chennai to complete her Telugu and Tamil projects.

And the actress calls her new status — ‘a transfer with a promotion’ from Kannada industry. “I am happy with the kind of projects I have been offered from Telugu and Tamil industries. My Telugu movie Takita Takita with Harshavardhan is doing extremely well in theatres. I got a chance to work with actors like Nagarjuna, Anushka and Bhoomika Chawla in that film, which was an unforgettable experience. With the release of Endhiran, I am just worried about my film’s fate,” says the actress.

Back home, Haripriya has to shoot for a song for the Sri Murali-starrer Nande, which is expected to release at the end of this year.

 “I am looking forward to the release of Vallakotai, a Tamil project with Arjun Sarja. Apart from that, I have signed another movie in Tamil called Muran opposite Charan. My Kannada movie Nande is almost ready except for a song that needs to be filmed. So I have a busy schedule coming up,” she grins.

Haripriya believes that working in different industries has helped her reinvent her abilities as an actress.

“It is a great feeling to have won the love of the audiences of three regions. Frankly speaking, I have a lot to learn from Telugu and Tamil industries when it comes to the technical aspects. Their technical ability is on par with any international industry. Otherwise, it is all the same wherever I go,” she adds.

Though busy with projects in three languages, Haripriya still regrets missing the film Shikari due to date clash.

“I was offered a role in Shikari, the first Kannada venture of Mammootty sir. But the shooting was later postponed due to some problem. The new schedule clashed with my other projects so the movie slipped out of my hands,” laments the actress.

When asked to choose her favourite among the three metropolitan cities — Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad — namma Haripriya quickly votes for the Garden City. “Once you get adjusted to Bangalore, you don’t feel good in any other city. That is the charm of this City. My second favourite is Hyderabad as I love to shop in this historic city. The Hyderabad City Centre is my favourite shopping destination. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like Chennai. The problem with Chennai is I don’t know the language and am not familiar with the localities yet.”
