Sandalwod beauty Shraddha Srinath is making her debut in Tollywood romancing Natural Star Nani in his upcoming sports thriller Jersey directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri. Speaking to scribes, the actress revealed the secrets of Jersey.
Speaking about her love for cricket, she said, “I am a cricket buff right from my childhood. However I lost interest after the start of IPL. I do not like this format. However, during ODIs and World Cup, I ensure that I do not miss much action. My favorite cricketer is Rahul Dravid. He is very cool and is a gentleman. When I was a child I watched his interviews and from then became his big fan.”
Shraddha revealed that she signed two films in Telugu before Jersey. She said, “Before Jersey, I signed two films in Telugu. One is under Ravikanth’s direction on Suresh Productions banner and another is Aadi Sai Kumar’s Jodi. However Jersey is releasing ahead of these two. I got a call from Nani’s manager and later director narrated me the story in Bengaluru. I listened for 2 hours and signed the project as I loved it.”
Shraddha said that she risked her career for Jersey. She revealed, “I am playing the role of housewife with a small kid. I had the fears of getting branded in such roles if I do such role on my debut. However, one gets films like Jersey very rarely, so I decided to take the risk without fearing for the future. Even then people will like my glamour role as Arjun’s girl friend.”
About Nani, she said, “Nani will always help his co stars and he will not scare others with his acting. While doing Jersey I feared for my Telugu language. However Nani instilled confidence in me saying that ‘You will perform well’. If viewers love my role, credit goes to Nani who though a star is very simple and jovial in the sets. Anyone can share their thoughts with him”
“I happened to watch only three films in Telugu. They are Pelli Choopulu, Baahubali and I did a small role in Cheliya. I wish to star in the direction of Rajamouli, Trivikram Srinivas and Tharun Baskar in Tollywood,” stated she.
As is known, Jersey is all set to hit the screens on 19th of this month.
