Chennai, May 9 (IANS) Southern actress Nisha Aggarwal values scripts over roles and says she would rather do few quality films than a string of bad ones.
“My films need not necessarily have a meaty role for me, but need to be good on the whole because I always look for films with good scripts. I’m more concerned about good scripts because I’d rather do few good films over a bouquet of bad films,” Nisha told IANS.
That doesn’t mean Nisha will typecast herself.
“I don’t have the liking for any specific kind of role. I am open to work in different genres and would like to do a variety of roles,” said the actress who dons the avatar of a village belle in Telugu film “Sukumarudu”, releasing worldwide Friday.
Earlier also she had played “a village girl”, but in those films her character eventually moves to the city. “But in this film, I play a character with the traits of a typical village belle. From the look to the expressions, I’m a hundred percent a village girl,” she added.
“My character brings a lot of fun element into the narrative. In short, I can call myself a livewire and I thoroughly enjoyed playing it. It’s one of those characters I haven’t done before and I’m looking forward to the audiences’ response,” added Nisha who is paired with Aadi Pudipeddi in the film.
She also explained that her character might be “chirpy”, but is “an essential part of the film”.
Directed by G. Ashok, the film also features veteran actors Krishna and Sharada alongside Chandra Mohan, Srinivasa Avasarala, Brahmanadam, Bhavna Ruparel, Raghu Babu and Rao Ramesh.
“I think the biggest highlight of the film will be the relationship between Aadi and Sharada madam. I’m sure audiences will be touched by their performances. Comedy is also the film’s strength and it’s very beautifully enveloped with emotions,” she said.
Sister of Kajal Aggarwal, Nisha made her cinematic debut with Telugu romance “Yemaindi Ee Vela”, and since then she has acted in a host of Telugu films.
Right now Nisha is filming for Telugu films – “DK Bose and “Saradaga Ammayilatho”.
