'Modelling becomes monotonous'

'Modelling becomes monotonous'


Actor Kavya Shetty has her career all chalked out in her head. The actor, who has come a long way since her debut in the Kannada film industry with 'Nam Duniya Nam Style', believes that it is her choice of films that has kept her in good stead. Kavya has completed the shoot of 'Samhara' which is slated to release in February and she also has '3 Gante 30 Dina and 30 Second', which will hit the screens in the second week of January.


In an interview with Nina C George, the actor talks about what keeps her on her toes.  

What was the best part about working in 'Samhara'?  

The scenes that Chiranjeevi Sarja, Chikkanna and I had together were most interesting. The three of us work to crack a case and I like the way the scenes unfold. They were hilarious, to say the least.

What changes did you have to undergo to fit into your character?

I play a journalist and didn't have to make too many changes, except that I had to alter the way I talk and work on the voice modulation.

On working with Chikkanna...

This is my fourth film with him. He and I have a great rapport off screen which has, in fact, strengthened our performance together.

How was it to have Chiranjeevi Sarja as your co-star?

This is my first film with him and he works very hard. There were times during the making of 'Samahara' where Chiranjeevi had to shoot continuously for 12 hours and he did so without complaining. Chiranjeevi is a bundle of energy.

What is your role in '3 Gante 30 Dina and 30 Second'?

I play the daughter of a man who owns a channel. It is a love story and my character is pretty stylish throughout the film. I think I get glamorous roles because of the way I look.

Are you choosy when it comes to work?

I am not choosy but I don't want to work on projects that I am not convinced about.

You were a model before becoming an actor. Do you miss modelling?

I sometimes do but modelling becomes monotonous after a while. As an actor, I get to play a variety of characters and explore something new every day.

What keeps you going?

I take things as they come and don't rush into anything. This approach has helped me.  

How is the year treating you so far?

I have two releases coming up. I will also be signing a new project in February. There is a lot to look forward to this year.
