'I could live on  fast food'

With a string of hits to her credit, Ragini Dwivedi needs no introduction. Three of her movies are lined up for release this year and the actor is all set to impress her fans with yet another performance. Being the workaholic that she is, Ragini is more than happy with the number of projects in her kitty at the moment. She is relieved that she has had a chance to showcase her talent with a range of roles.

After being praised for movies like ‘Villain’ and Arakshaka, the actor is currently shooting for ‘Ragini IPS’, which is directed by Anand P Raju and produced by K Manju.

When asked about her role in ‘Ragini IPS’, the actor springs up with excitement to give details. “It is an action-packed film with a fantastic script and I play the role of a cop. I’m shooting the fight sequences for the movie currently,” she says.
Ragini will also be seen in the movie Shiva, opposite Shivarajkumar. It is a film by K P Srikanth and Kantharaj, directed by Om Prakash Rao. “This movie is fabulously scripted and I play a Christian girl,” expresses Ragini.

Apart from that, Ragini is also thrilled about her role in Bangari and explains, “I play a village girl in the film.

She might not be glamorous but she is full of life, outspoken and talkative.” The actor mentions that Yogesh and she play the lead roles in the romantic movie, which is directed by Chandru, a debutante director.
Having worked in various films with many talented actors, she admits, “It doesn’t matter how big the banner is, as long as the script attracts me. My character in the movie should have substance.”

Ragini confesses that her career is taking the right path and adds that she is passionate about her work.

Talking about remakes, she explains that movies are remade to give healthy competition across film industries and portray the same storyline in different perspectives.

Ragini coyly admits, “The biggest hits of my career were from remakes.”
The actor is open to showing off her talent in other language, but says, “Sandalwood is home. I’m emotionally attached to the Kannada film fraternity and I don’t think it can be compared with any other industry. However, I would be very glad to accept offers from other industries because it’s a different working space and provides a platform to elevate as an actor.”

She plans to take a break in August to rejuvenate and pamper herself. Miami tops Ragini’s list of holiday destinations. Apart from acting, she enjoys spending time with her close friends, listening to music and playing with her dogs.
She is quick to clarify that she isn’t obsessive about her weight and concludes, “Given a choice, I could live on fast food especially fried chicken.”
