After debuting with a comic caper ‘Bham Bholenath’ last year, Pooja Jhaveri will be seen as a village belle in her next film ‘Right Right’, directed by Manu. The comic drama set in a rural backdrop is a remake of Malayalam film ‘Ordinary’.
Explaining her role, she says, “I play a village girl in the film, which is about the life of a driver (played by Prabhakar) and a bus conductor played by Sumanth Ashwin. I’m one of the passengers in the bus and how my association with them unfolds during the journey is interestingly told.
I will be seen sporting churidhars, half-saris, etc. My role has been tweaked to suit the nativity of the Telugu audience. Also, I have more dialogues and screen space.”
The Gujarati-born feels it’s challenging to play a rustic role. “It’s easy to play glamorous role because we are familiar with outfits and know how to carry them.
But playing a rural character is challenging because our costumes, hair, make-up, etc., should look natural. So I was required to be extra cautious and work harder to justify the part,” she opines.
