'My blink-and-miss role has been noticed'
...says Roopa Rayappa, who has been flooded with offers post KGF’s success
The cast and crew of KGF have been basking in the success of the film. Among them is Roopa Rayappa, one of the supporting cast members.
Though it was a blink-and-miss role, it has had an impact, feels Roopa. “A lot of industry insiders have recognised me. In the past, I had to go looking for opportunities. Now when I say I have acted in KGF, they take me seriously. The film fraternity has started recognising me because of this film, and congratulatory messages have been pouring in. It has been generating more work for me,” explains the artiste.
While offers have been pouring in, Roopa is yet to make an official announcement about her next film. “I just lost out on one because I didn’t know driving. However, I have one project which is getting finalised, and I am in talks for another film,” she tells us.
Along with KGF, Roopa was also associated with Mysore Diaries. The film directed by Dhananjay Ranjan has her playing one of the leads along with Pavana. “The trailer is out and I'm now anxiously waiting for the film's release,” she says.
Talking about KGF, the actor is hopeful about Chapter II. However, she doesn’t want to reveal too much until the film starts rolling. “I am told that I will be part of KGF Chapter II, but I would rather wait before blowing my own trumpet,” Roopa says, adding that she will be happy with whatever screen space she gets in the film.
“I knew that KGF would make a lot of noise, and get me recognition as an artiste. I am open to all kinds of roles, provided they have visibility,” says this electronics and communications engineering graduate.
