Ever because she became a kid, possibly the simplest element that played a key function in Sobhita Dhulipala’s existence as she forayed into films became her desire to tell tales. However, she was not inclined to be an actress by her admission until she captured her first movie, Raman Raghav 2.Zero.

“Forty minutes after I auditioned for Raman Raghav, I was informed that I turned on board, and we finished the shoot in 10 days. Six months later, I turned to the Cannes Film Festival, and I didn’t even comprehend that I had been nominated for an award for my performance there. I suppose that entire revel in modified my belief towards acting, and I knew that that is what I desired to do,” Sobhita recollects, including, “I’m a skilled Kuchipudi and Bharatanatyam dancer, and spot it additionally a one form of storytelling. Music is every other shape of storytelling. I love writing poetry even though I haven’t published my paintings. And more than anything, I love backpacking. Now, I’m in love with acting and movies, too.”
Despite her upbringing in Vizag, the actress hardly ever watched films. Out of 20 strange films she had seen in her life, eight were from the Harry Potter series. One of the primary movies that strongly influenced was Sekhar Kammula’s Anand. “That was perhaps the primary time I realized that cinema could greatly influence humans. It changed into one of the few films I had seen as a child, and I don’t forget falling in love with the characters. My circle of relatives became never closer to movies, and I became an exceedingly studious girl in college and university. Even once, I was given a few gifts from Telugu cinema. When I gained Miss India’s identity in 2013, I wasn’t sure I wanted to be an actress,” Sobhita says, rely-of-factly.
It became her overall performance in Raman Raghav 2. Zero that eventually paved her foray into Telugu cinema. Admittedly, she has been in contact with Adivi Sesh, actor and creator of Goodachari, since her debut film launched. Finally, when she met the crew in Hyderabad, she became satisfied that it became the proper project for her debut in Telugu cinema. “Both Sesh and director Sashi Kiran Tikka had been clear about their objective, imaginative, and prescient. I truly agree that sincerity can’t be doubted. When you notice it, you comprehend it.
Another aspect that satisfied me about the movie was how well every person changed in writing. In maximum cases, the plot is nicely etched out. However, when it comes to female characters, they are relegated to the sidelines. That wasn’t the case with Goodachari. Yes, it’s an action drama and a secret agent mystery; however, it is also quite emotional. I love playing characters with a specific arc, and I located all that and greater in my man or woman, Sameera Rao, in this film. Now that I have done a movie in my mother tongue, it appears like my life has come a full circle,” the actress admits.
After gambling the lead function in Anurag Kashyap’s Raman Raghav 2.0, in the past few months, Sobhita has been part of films and digital content directed utilizing the likes of Jeethu Joseph Geethu Mohandas, Akshat Varma, and Zoya Akhtar. Ask her if her notion closer to cinema has been modified given that she has labored with such outstanding filmmakers; Sobhita says, “Absolutely. Once you figure out such human beings, you don’t want to be part of anything that doesn’t fulfill the actor in you. I would be mendacious if I said that collaborating with such humans isn’t my priority, and I want to be a part of films that I can appear to return to 40-50 years later and be pleased with. The work of Anurag Kashyap and Nawazuddin Siddiqui pretty stimulated me. It becomes almost like going to a movie college.”
She admits that she is drawn in the direction of characters who do not truly locate a place in mainstream cinema. If Raman Raghav 2. Zero becomes a dark and gritty drama about a serial killer. Her upcoming Telugu film, Goodachari, is an undercover agent thriller, a genre that is a rarity in Telugu cinema. “If I wanted to make huge money, I must, in all likelihood, have been an investment banker or something. Instead, I finished my master’s in Law (laughs). I’m not passionate about the concept of being famous. I’m more than happy to be anonymous. My ambition is releasing me, now not being met, and these days’ day and age, that looks like a superpower,” she says, including, “I find a thrill in playing normal characters like a farmer’s daughter, a tailor’s wife. I want to play roles where I can inform such ordinary humans’ testimonies. It’s important to work with an excellent group.”
The actress is praised for the new wave of Telugu cinema. She says that no other industry inside the country can boast as many comedians and comedy movies as the Telugu movie industry churns out. “I turned into pretty impressed after I noticed Sesh’s Kshanam. Telugu movies were doing so nicely overdue, and a few movies are being remade in Hindi. Every enterprise has its power and flaws.
Regarding Hindi films, they invest in plenty of their manufacturing design, and the money shows on screen. Telugu films are sincerely proper when it comes to portraying feelings and sentiments. There’s something lovely about it,” Sobhita signs and symptoms off.
