Brahmachari will show the mischievous side of me: Aditi Prabhudeva
The actor, who has teamed up with producer Uday K Mehta for the second time after Singa, is sharing screen space with Sathish Ninasam for the first time
Aditi Prabhudeva, who became a household name with her serial Nagakanike, is charting her film career at a steady pace. Having made her debut with Dhairyam, the five-film-old heroine is making her first attempt at comedy in her sixth outing, Brahmachari. The actor, who has teamed up with producer Uday K Mehta for the second time after Singa, is sharing screen space with Sathish Ninasam for the first time. The Chandra Mohan directorial, which received a U/A certificate will be hit theatres this week.
Talking about how she handled the humour-based subject, Aditi says, “A new genre always puts you in the learning process.” The actor felt that the director was able to explore the funny side of her in the comedy-drama. “There is a little mischievous side in me, people don’t know about, which will be seen in Brahmachari,” she adds.
Aditi reveals she never expected to be part of Brahmachari. “The project was in the planning stage when I was working with producer Uday Mehta in Singa. Since he liked my professionalism, the producer told me he'd cast me in one of his upcoming films. But I never expected that it will his very next film. Even I suggested names of a few heroines to the team. The project came as a surprise when director Chandra Mohan called me and said I am the chosen one. Even before the realisation dawned on me, I was on the sets,” she recalls.
The fun-filled trailer of Brahmachari, as well as the songs featuring the lead actors, have caught the attention of viewers, and according to Aditi, the film will keep everybody in splits. Brahmachari, she says, is about one's state of mind when being single. “It happens with everybody, single or married. Every actor will strike a bond with the audience. My character's graph will travel from before to after marriage. This is about the sense of fear in a newly-married girl. She is in her own dream world for some time. The situations that take place in the film, accompanied with witty one-liners, make it funnier,” explains Aditi, adding that there are a few scenes with double entendres, and it did make her feel conscious. “Sathish knows the art of humour, and I found it hard to react to his expressions. I took charge while emoting the funny scenes. But each time they said ‘cut’, the entire unit would hear me burst out with laughter. Teaming up with an actor like Sathish, along with Dattanna, Achyuth Rao, Shivaraj K Pete, and Padmaja Rao, put me in a comfort zone,” she said.
The actor, who has four films in the pipeline, has pinned her hope on Brahmachari to earn a firm footing on the commercial platform. “With a little experience, I have come to realise that today, commercial films or looking glamorous do mean a lot in the industry. I hope Brahmachari provides a big U-turn in my career and takes me to the next level,” she admits.
