Ritu Varma admits that she is taking it slow after the phenomenal success of ‘#Pellichoopulu’. “I have always been selective and I like to be that way. I’m not in a hurry but if something interesting comes up, I’d definitely take it up,” she asserts, admitting that she was flooded with offers post ‘#Pellichoopulu’ last year. “People have a lot of expectations from me after ‘#Pellichoopulu’ and I don’t want to disappoint them.”
Ritu was in the news recently for bagging Gautham Menon’s ‘Dhruva Natchatiram’ with Tamil superstar Vikram. While she is not at liberty to speak about the film, she says she has wrapped up filming her portions for ‘Kesava’ with Nikhil. “I play Satya, a law student.
She is a girl next door who is not just Nikhil’s love interest but is also integral to the narrative,” informs Ritu, who has shot for the thriller in places like Visakhapatnam, Annavaram and Rajamahendravaram. “Shooting in Vizag, especially, was nice. It’s a beautiful city. We’ve also shot in Andhra University and students out there showered enormous love on us. Furthermore, they’ve waited patiently to get clicked with us. “
Ritu is all praise for the film’s director Sudheer Varma, saying, “He knows what he wants, is sorted out and gives a lot of freedom for his actors.”
Ask her did she ever anticipate her career to be on a roll and she says, “Not really. I’ve never planned life. I take it as it comes. I’m happy with the way my career is going now. I’m in a happy space.”
Ritu admits that she was approached for the Tamil remake of ‘#Pellichoopulu’, which Gautham Menon is producing. Tamannaah is now playing her part. “Yes, the Tamil makers did ask me if I’d be interested and I said yes. But then things took a different turn,” she muses, signing off.
