'I want to be a better performer'


Actor R Anusha  has high hopes on 2018. She was first seen on screen as a girl-next-door in the horror movie 'Sodabuddi'.



After this followed 'Once More Kaurava' where she was seen as a village girl. She is excited that she is a part of in an untitled project by Chala and 'Premadalli' by Hariprasad Jayanna.

In a candid conversation with Tini Sara Anien, the actor talks about her roles and more.



You are pretty new to the industry. Have you settled in?

I have not. I feel that there is so much more to do. I want to keep working in quality movies. I enjoy acting and I want to keep exploring myself as an artiste.  


You worked with a new team in 'Sodabuddi' and an experienced director in  'Once More Kaurava'. Which one was more interesting?


Both the experiences were really enriching. I feel that all actors should work  with different teams.  When I worked with a new team, I learnt new things along with them but when I worked with S Mahendar sir's project, I  was training under  him. One can definitely explore 
and go wild with a new team.



Tell us about your roles.

I play Artha in Chala's movie. She lies in all circumstances and lives in a fantasy world. The role explored the child in me. In  'Premadalli', I play a mature woman. I am  glad that I am getting roles that are so  diverse. Though both these movies are romantic-comedies, my characters are very different from each other.


Do you relate to your characters from your upcoming projects?

The two roles explore two sides of me. I do not lie as  Artha does  but I can be quite kiddish, when I  wish to. At most other times, I am a mature  person.  


Are you a director's actor?

I listen keenly to the  instructions given by the director but I also like to bring in my own style. If he does not  like  my inputs, I change my performance accordingly. It's important to have one's own style.


According to you, how should a new actor be?

Open to new things and flexible,  be strong about one's stand and be spontaneous.


Do you feel that Sandalwood has changed over the years?


I feel really good to be a part of the industry now. The industry has seen stereotypical commercial subjects evolve to bigger and better themes. More and more unconventional projects like 'Ondu Motteya Kathe' can be seen now. Movies are not just about entertainment now. I would  always love to watch such movies and hope that I will be a part of such 
projects too.



Any particular roles you want to be seen in?

All I wish for is that movies should make an impact and connect to the audience. If a director  trusts me with a role, I would love to work in it. I want to be a better performer.


What is your motto in life?

Be happy, live a simple life and this will  make you smile more.


What  makes you happy?

Being with  family and friends and watching good movies.
