Actor Sonu Gowda is enjoying her busy life now. While two of her movies 'Gultoo' and 'Chambal' are awaiting release, she  is shuttling from the set of  'Ondhara Bannagalu' to that to 'Fortuner'.

In a candid conversation with Tini Sara Anien, she talks about her projects.  

This seems to be the busiest time of your career. How does it feel?

I am excited as ever. I feel blessed to be where I am now. I never thought that such beautiful things would happen and I am thankful for it.    

Tell us about your latest projects.

I am shooting for two projects at the moment. 'Ondhara Bannagalu' is a travel-based film, directed by Sunil, where I am cast opposite Kiran Srinivas. The movie is based on a light-hearted theme. It is about five youngsters and their trip to Badami, Mangaluru and Hubbali.  'Fortuner' is directed by Manjunath where I will be seen opposite Diganth.

How diverse are your roles?

I play Janaki, a traditional Uttara Karnataka girl  who is fun-loving, in 'Ondhara Bannagalu'. My character is  also very moody. I loved playing this role because I had practised the dialect. In 'Fortuner', I play Anusha, a dominating and stubborn  woman who likes to control everything.

How  is it acting with Diganth?

It was very difficult to romance Diganth. He is an old friend and  we  ended up laughing during the scenes. He is a great professional and  he spreads happiness wherever he is.  

Do you face challenges working on two films at a time?

It is not  very difficult. Whenever I am on one set, I slip into that particular character and I am she till I finish the day's work.

How do you handle dull moments?

Everyone goes through it. I  try to never get too attached to anything. When there is  a lull, I just sit back and involve myself in other things. I don't worry when I don't have films.  

You were the mermaid in Baadal Nanjundaswamy's latest artwork on a pothole. How passionate are you about such campaigns?

I  jump in and involve myself with anything that I can connect to.  Expressing your views are very important in today's times.
