Krishna and his Leela was supposed to be Shraddha Srinath’s debut film in Telugu, but for the Kannada actress, the delay in the film’s release has been a blessing in disguise — her Jersey starring Nani was released before Krishna…, and now her name has become a household one in the Telugu States. “I was definitely bothered about the delay in the release, and I was wondering whether it would be released at all, but now I don’t have any regrets. I’m happy that the film was released in a private channel during the lockdown,” says the U-Turn actress.
Shraddha has now signed Chakra, a multi-lingual film in which she plays a cop. She took inputs from her father, who is in the Army, about things like holding a gun, reveals the actress.
“I got a good response after the recent release of the trailer. I have a lot of action scenes in the film and people can see me in a completely new avatar,” she says, adding, “Action scenes are very new to me, and I am quite excited about this film.”
For Shraddha, the lockdown has been quite an eye-opener.
“My maid has not been coming in to work, so I am helping my mother in cleaning the house. It’s a very humbling experience. I have realised that I am in a privileged position. I realise that I can do a lot to help society, including working to create awareness about various issues,” she says.
Shraddha has done Tamil, films and a Hindi film too.
“My strategy is always to pick good films. I strike a balance among all the industries,” she says.
