I want to fit into and do all kind of roles: Shreya Anchan
The actor, who debuted with Raj B Shetty’s Ondhu Motteya Kathe, is looking forward to second release, Katheyondu Shuruvagide
Recognition as an artiste was Shreya Anchan’s wish and this came true when she starred in Raj B Shetty’s directorial debut, Ondhu Motteya Kathe. The actor is now looking forward to her second release, Katheyondu Shuruvagide. In the film, she shares screen space with Ashwin Rao Pallakki. The film, which marks Senna Hegde’s directorial debut, features Diganth and Pooja Devariya in the lead.
“I play a character named Swarna who is an employee at a resort owned by Diganth. Ashwin Rao and Prakash play my colleagues. The story unfolds when a guest comes to the resort,” reveals Shreya.
She says that every upcoming actor in the industry should get to work with directors like Raj B Shetty and Senna Hegde. “These directors gives actors a free hand, and it is up to us to utilise this chance. We are allowed to explore our talents better. Raj’s film gave me that first break, and I learnt a lot from him. It helped us both grow as professionals,” says Shreya, adding, “Raj’s tutorials came in handy for me in my present project with Senna Hegde.”
She had done two films in Tulu before Ondhu Motteya Kathe and then started working in serials, before her first big break in the industry. “I also worked with Sruthi Hariharan in a short film titled Rita, which was screened last week “ Shreya adds.
The actor, who is appreciative of the recognition she got for her role in Ondhu Motteya Kathe, says, “I hope to get the same recognition for my role in Katheyondu Shuruvagide and wish that audiences see what I am trying to do. I want to fit into and do all kinds of roles.”
“It was great working with talents like Diganth and Pooja on the sets of Katheyondu Shuruvagide. It was a highly motivated team. All thanks to Rakshit Shetty and Pushkar Mallikarjunaiah for considering actors like me. Associating with a well-known production house is something that I am happy about. It's my next big step,” she adds.
