Bhavana plays a drug dealer in Inspector Vikram
The actor will be joining the sets of the film, which has her starring opposite Prajwal Devaraj, next week
Bhavana is thrilled that her latest film Tagaru, directed by Suri and starring Shivarajkumar, is being received well. “I am happy that I didn’t say no to Suri and glad to be associated with this project. It feels amazing,’’ says the actor, who attended the success meet of the film on Monday.
Her next film is Inspector Vikram, in which she is paired opposite Prajwal Devaraj. The actor is planning to join the shoot from next week, and she will be playing an unusual role in it. “I get to play a drug dealer in the film, which is an interesting role,” she says.
Bhavana is looking forward to playing some strong roles, but she is aware of the fact that this being a male-dominated industry, one cannot insist on female-oriented scripts. As for playing glamarous roles in films, the actor says, “I have never done an overly glamourous role either before or after marriage. If I am comfortable wearing an outfit, I will do it. It’s up to me.”
Another actor, Shruti Hariharan, has recently been in the news for her views about the casting couch, and when a similar question was asked to Bhavana, she tells us, “I have never faced such a situation. I started off in the industry as a kid at the age of 14, when my father was a cinematogrpher. Thankfully, I haven’t had such experiences in the industry and I can’t talk much about it.”
