'I strongly believe in love'

It's not the first time that artistes from the North have tried their luck in the South Indian film industry. Actor Farah Titina vouches that she planned to act in movies here because she was impressed by the content that she saw. The model-turned-actor, who has been a part of many commercials, will soon be seen on screen in the bilingual movie 'Snehave Preeti' (Kannada) and '2 Friends' (Telugu). In a candid chat with Tini Sara Anien, she talks about her role in the movie.

You were into modelling before this. Did it help you in the film industry?

I have done ad shoots and modelled before which brought me to the limelight. Soon enough I knew that I like performing for people which made me take the plunge. Modelling does help boost one's confidence.

Was acting your first choice?

I used to do dance performances during my school days and soon moved to acting in theatre. I was instantly pulled to acting and found it very fulfilling. I knew that I had to be an actor and what better way of doing it than taking it
a notch higher and traversing to films.

How did your role in 'Snehave Preeti' happen?

The casting director of the movie knew me well. Like most other actors, I auditioned and got the movie offer. I am so excited that I got a chance to be a part of the movie.

Tell us about your character.

My character is called Madhurima, a college student who is very focussed and is career-driven. She doesn't believe in love. I am Suraj Gowda's best friend in the movie.

Are you similar to the role you portray?

I am a very focussed person and career-driven. But, I strongly believe in love and I strongly believe that if there is someone who matches up to one's sensualities, then why not.

Tell us about your chemistry with Suraj Gowda.

Suraj is a fantastic co-actor. He knows how to make anyone comfortable. Whenever I would be confused about certain words, he would immediately step in and help me out.

How was your experience of working in the movie?

Despite acting in a different language I never felt out of place because the team made sure I was comfortable. I never knew that it would be such a heart-warming experience.

How different is it to act on stage and in movies?

Both are distinct in their own way. Acting on stage can be quite loud while one needs to do subtle acting when in front of the camera.
