Newbie Irra Mor delighted at reception to Bhairava Geetha's trailer
The trailer of the film, made under Ram Gopal Varma's banner, has been trending from Saturday
The trailer of the Telugu-Kannada bilingual, Bhairava Geetha, has been trending since its launch on Saturday, with actor Dhananjay and the film's heroine, Irra Mor, coming under the spotlight. Directed by debutant Siddhartha, and made under the banner of Ram Gopal Varma in association with Rashi Productions, the film’s YouTube trailer is nearing the 1 million mark. "Somehow, we had this feeling that it would work, but this has truly exceeded expectations. All the love we are receiving is yet to sink in," says Irra.
The newcomer clarifies that kissing on screen isn't a big deal anymore, referring to the scene in the trailer. "As long as it goes with the story, that’s what matters. In Bhairava Geetha, this scene is written as a pure expression of love. I've just done my job," she says.
Irra credits RGV not only for giving her a content-driven debut but also the break she was looking for. "I regard him as a legendary filmmaker who has a knack for finding talent. I am so grateful that he liked my work and decided to cast me in Bhairava Geetha," she says.
A Mumbaikar, Irra comes from a theatre background. The reason she decided to take up this film, she says, is because she "loved the characterisation of Geetha". "She’s strong and independent, and probably appealed to me because that’s how I am in real life," says Irra, who hopes to show variety in her future roles.
Bhairava Geetha is touted to be a violent love story, and Irra explains that the violence is on account of the complications resulting from the romance. The film, shot predominantly with youngsters, is almost in its last leg of shooting. "The energy on sets is infectious. We shot for the film in remote locations without phone signals, and in a sense, I can say I’ve undergone digital detoxing," she says with a laugh.
As she awaits the release of her first film, she expresses her hope that RGV will help shape her career. "His experience will help me and will be a driving force in shaping my career," she signs off.
