Avika Gor makes a comeback with Raju Gari Gadhi 3

The actor, who is starring in a Telugu film for the first time since Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada (2016), tells us what drew her to Ohmkar's horror-comedy

Published: 14th October 2019

After a three-year-break from Telugu films post Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada (2016), actor Avika Gor is back in the reckoning with Raju Gari Gadhi 3, the third instalment to the horror-comedy franchise directed by Ohmkar.

For the first time, she has teamed up with comedian Ali in the film. "I have watched many of his films and it's been a long-time wish for my mother to see me share screen space with Ali garu. Our first meeting was exciting and working with a senior actor like him has been a great learning experience," says Avika. 

Initially, the director roped in Tamannaah for the lead role, but she was later replaced by Avika due to date issues. "Ohmkar gave me a 40-minute narration and I am convinced that my character will connect well with the audience. I actually enjoyed playing it," says Avika, who admits she doesn't like horror films. "I'm too scared to watch a horror film. Despite my fear of the genre, it was the comedy in this film that made me sign it,"she adds.

Avika, who plays a ghost in the film, shares, "When I first put on the make-up for the ghost character, my father teased me, asking if it was really me!"

Meanwhile, she will next be seen playing the lead role in an untitled film. "I am looking forward to playing well-placed characters. I have signed a new film and more details about it will emerge in 15 days," signs off Avika.
