Kavya Shetty: Love is timeless
The actor talks to CE about her upcoming film 3 Gante, 30 Dina, 30 Second
Kavya Shetty does not believe in planning, she would rather go with the flow. "We can't foresee good and bad times in our career, therefore it is best to step in without a plan," says the actor, whose film 3 Gante, 30 Dina, 30 Second is nearing its theatrical release.
Kavya enjoyed travelling for the making of this film. "The title might give the impression that this is a thriller, but it is really a film about love. The title is refers to a 30-day-long journey taken by Arun Gowda and me, and there is a show for three hours and the result is experienced in thirty seconds," says Kavya.
"Love is timeless. In this film, I play the owner of a TV channel who has no time for love, because she's busy with work. But, for the hero, everything is love and the rest is immaterial. That forms the main plot of the film. In life, I believe that both time and love are important,” she says.
How long would it take for a person to fall in love? "It can happen in minutes, sometimes it can take forever or it may never happen at all. I don’t believe in love that blooms in a moment… it takes time to fall in love with a person. Of course, a mother's love for her child is instantaneous," she says.
This is Madhusudan's debut directorial, and he has written the story and screenplay of the film. Kavya says that he does a lot of homework. "He was well prepared, took time to complete the shooting and did not hurry the making. It was a good experience. I was also surprised by the title, and then I realised its importance and it helped me get into character,” she says.
The film took one year and six months to make. "In between, I did another film Samhaara, which is also ready for release,” she says, adding, “But every film has its own pace. And it was a memorable experience.”
The actor will take a while to choose her next project. "I don't want to exhaust myself doing films for the heck of it. I want do something that I look forward to being part of. I can't take up everything because I have time. I prefer to choose the best and cherish it,” she says.
