Varalaxmi Sarathkumar is one of the most happening actresses in Telugu and Tamil right now. She will soon be seen in 'Kota Bommali PS' which is hitting the screens on 24th December. Produced by Bunny Vass and Vidya Koppineedi, Teja Marni is the director. GA2 Pictures are releasing this film and the 'Krack' actress will be seen as a hot-headed cop. Whilst promoting the movie, she gave away some interesting snippets.
She said, "This is the first time that I have played a cop in a Telugu film. I have done so previously in Tamil and Malayalam. Investigative thrillers have become a trend these days. Right from the beginning, I have wanted to try variety in Telugu. 'Kota Bommali PS' offered me a platform for the same."
Talking about the plotline, she reveals, "The cat-and-mouse game involving Srikanth garu, me and others is interesting. He too is a cop like me in the film. What happens when one of the cops goes berserk? What happens when a police officer turns criminal? What happens when an upright cop chases such a deviant cop? That's interesting to watch in the film."
Regarding her character, she says, "In the Malayalam original 'Nayattu', my character has no equivalent. The place of my character in the Telugu adaptation is much more significant. This is not a politics-heavy movie. But a few lines allude to the electoral system. It's not against any party. It is about voting behaviours to a small extent."
Varalaxmi will be seen smoking in this film and she stated, "This is the first time that I have smoked in a film. It was a funny experience to pretend like I was enjoying it. After the director called 'Cut', I would feel a bit discomfort (laughs). As an artist, I have to submit to the character. I have always been conscious about playing roles that are remembered by the audience. I play roles that others can't play. I am happy to be in that space."
She adds, "The outdoor shoot involved shooting in a jungle, etc. It was not friendly terrain. I have only a few combination scenes with Srikanth garu. He is a simple and sweet human being. Director Teja Marni is such a soft-spoken person."
Jagadeesh Cheekati is the director of photography while Rajnin Raj and Midhun Mukundan are composing the music. Karthika Srinivas is the editor while Gandi Nadikudikar is the editor. Bhanu Pratap and Riyaz Chowdary co-produced the film. Rahul Vijay and Shivani Rajasekhar are also playing the main characters in this movie along with Srikanth Meka.
