I enjoy being a glamour doll: Rashmi
The Visakhapatnam girl says that she will be happy to fill the void left by yesteryear sirens like Silk Smitha and Jyothi Lakshmi
From playing a television presenter in the popular comedy show Jabardasth to becoming a successful actress with Guntur Talkies, Rashmi Gautam has come a long way. “I’m not fluent in Telugu, but our people have showered their love and blessings on me in all my endeavours on the small screen. I’m hoping to get a similar reception in Tollywood too,” she says.
The actress is now looking forward to the release of her upcoming film Next Nuvve in which she plays actor Brahmaji’s sister. Directed by Prabhakar, the film is slated to release on November 3. “I’m playing the leading lady in the film and it’s a glamourous role. Throughout the film, I will be seen in a saree. I couldn’t believe how drop-dead gorgeous I looked in this avatar, and this makeover made me think that I could live in a saree.”
Elaborating further on the film, she says, “It’s a concept-based film with loads of entertainment. Every role has a significance, and I’m sure the audience will have a great time seeing Aadi, Vaibhavi, Brahmaji and me in action.”
Rashmi, known for playing the seductress on screen in films like Guntur Talkies and Antham, doesn’t have any problems with being called a glamour doll. The Visakhapatnam girl asserts that it is this image which has found her many admirers. “I don’t want to shrug off the glamour doll image. In fact, I enjoy people call me a bombshell and it feels good to be every man’s dream,” says the actress who feels she has redefined glamour with those roles. “If there is a proper justification, I’m ready to play a vamp-like character and am happy to fill the void left by yesteryear sirens like Silk Smitha, Jyothi Lakshmi, etc. So far, I have shown only 30 per cent of my talent and still have a long way to go in the Telugu cinema industry.”
