While Raashii Khanna donned the greasepaint for the first time in Shoojit Sircar’s Madras Cafe, it was Telugu cinema that gave wings to her acting career with the refreshing summer romance Oohalu Gusagusalade, which turned 8 yesterday. Over these 8 years, she developed a knack for comedy, excelling in the dance-song routine and has the right looks to pull off mainstream films with ease.
Raashii thanked God, her fans, directors, co-actors and crew of her films for helping her evolve and carve her niche in Telugu cinema. In her Instagram chat, she told, “When people shout for me in theatres, I still wonder if they’re doing it for me, because I’m a very simple person at the end of the day. I feel blessed seeing all the love you have for me.”
Raashi opined that Prabhavathi from Oohalu Gusagusalade is a character quite close to her heart and even sung a few lines of the popular number from the film, Em Sandeham Ledu during the interaction. When a fan asked her about her most favourite co-star, she played it safe and said it was hard to pick one among all of them. She also spoke of her Telugu films Pakka Commercial and Thank You.
“I’ve played a full length comic character in Pakka Commercial and I hope audiences like it. Comedy is one of the most difficult genres to pull off. Pakka Commercial, Thank You release in consecutive weeks and both are very special to me. Allu Aravind, whom I hold in high regard, has appreciated my performance in Pakka Commercial. Thank You is a film about gratitude,” Raashii stated.
She also spilled the beans about her other projects like Yodha, Farzi, Thiruchitrambalam. While she has wrapped up filming for the talkie part of her Hindi film Yodha and is waiting to commence the song shoot, there’s a spring in her step when she opens up about Farzi. “I never say anything bombastic about my future releases, but Farzi is among the best projects in my career and I’ve really liked the way it has shaped up.”
Thiruchitrambalam has her teaming up alongside Dhanush for the first time in her career and she stated that he’s one of the best actors of our generation. On a parting note, Raashi opined that her journey in cinema had just begun and there’s a lot left for her to achieve and prove. “Gratitude is something I really believe in. I wouldn’t have been here without you all,” she signed off.
