Different shades of grey

Sandalwood actress Ragini Dwivedi is known to act in projects with characters that have made us stop and ponder for a minute. With her look for the film ‘Hulli Devara Kaadu’ out, she intends just that again. The film which is a psychological thriller, will see her playing a role that she has never played before and she is excited about the same.

The film will be set in a place near Sirsi, which has the same name as the movie. “The place where we are shooting is in Karnataka. The story will take place in a village,” she says. Ragini says that “each and every character in the film is fantastically written” and is bound to grab attention. “Though we start work for the film only by January, the first look was created to create a buzz among everyone and to get them talking. There are many who said that the look has a negative shade to it, is devilish, monstrous or a witchy character.” She adds that there are others who say that the “it is difficult to cohere what the character is thinking as she is smiling in the photograph”.

Through her role, she intends to push her acting skills to the limits. “It is the first time I’m trying a genre like this which has shades of grey. I am focussed on trying different things.

My role is of a girl who belongs to a rich family and has a posh lifestyle. She has some disorders where she hallucinates and imagines things, which may or may not be true. If they are true or not, is what the story revolves around,” says Ragini.

Like every movie requires homework and a lot of changes in the artiste’s looks, Ragini says she will be changing her hairstyle, makeup and entire look for this movie. “I’ve even lost weight. Also, I love reading fiction and for me this is yet another imaginary world. This movie talks about different states of minds of a person according to the situations.” She vouches that movie will keep one right at the edge of one’s seat.

She says that with this movie she also intends to spread the message about the many enchanting places in Karnataka that one might not know off. “I wasn’t aware that there was a namesake village, when I heard the script. In most of the movies, we have shoots happen at some location abroad and people crave to go there. This movie is make us realise that we have many hidden treasures in our own lovely State.”

Talking about 2016, she says, “The year ahead is packed with a lot of excitement for me with my projects ‘Ranachandi’ and ‘Parapancha’ releasing first.” She adds that work of ‘Naane Next CM’ is also in its finishing stage and will be ready soon. “After these, this project will follow.” Ragini has her hopes high that the next year will add multifolds to her career. “Just because a year doesn’t see many releases doesn’t mean that it wasn’t an important year. This year formed base for many quality projects and that is utmost important to me.”
