'I'm hoping that Savyasachi will be the perfect launch pad for me in Telugu'
...says Niddhi Agerwal who is eagerly awaiting the release of her Telugu films opposite Naga Chaitanya and Akhil
Nidhhi Agerwal is gung-ho about her debut Telugu film, Savyasachi, in which she plays the lead opposite Naga Chaitanya. "I'm playing an independent girl and my character helps the story take an unexpected turn. The film is replete with special effects, but my character has been significant. I could relate to the character as I am a bold girl in real life too. I'm hoping that Savyasachi will be the perfect launch pad for me in Telugu," says Niddhi.
Directed by Chandoo Mondeti, the film also starring Madhavan, Bhumika Chawla Thakur, Vennela Kishore and Satya draws its plot from the Vanishing Twin Syndrome, in which one of the twins disappears in the early stage of pregnancy and the fetal tissue is absorbed by the other twin. The Munna Michael actor reveals that she was surprised by the theme of the film. “I found the story unreal. I couldn’t believe that such syndrome exists. I was amazed when Chandoo sir explained about it. I’m glad that my role has been fleshed out well and I’m happy to choose this as my debut film,” she says.
Niddhi is all praise for Telugu cinema. “I’ve learnt a lot from this film. Telugu film industry has been fantastic. Right from a technician to senior actors, people have been really helpful, warm and supportive.”
She says she was thrilled to share screen space with seasoned actors like Madhavan and Bhumika. “I'm fortunate to work with such experienced actors. They were always encouraging and supportive on sets. Even Naga Chaitanya, who comes from one of the illustrious families of the industry, was down-to-earth and helpful on the sets. He is a man of positive energy. I take this opportunity to thank each one of them.”
The 25-year-old actor will also be seen in Mr Majnu, which features Akhil Akkineni in the lead. “Savyasachi and Mr Majnu are really special to me. Both these films gave me different working experiences and helped me understand Telugu cinema. It feels great to work with Chaitanya and Akhil around the same time. I’m looking forward to more work in Telugu cinema.”
