Komalee Prasad will next be seen in Rowdy Boys, starring Ashish. She’s playing one of the leading ladies in the campus love story directed by Sree Harsha Konuganti.

She plays a medico in the film. “I am a qualified dental surgeon, so shooting for scenes involving doctors and the medical fraternity was a great experience. In fact, I got nostalgic while shooting for campus scenes,” she shares, adding that the role offered her scope to be herself.

Rowdy Boys reflects typical college life, and that makes it relatable to everyone,” she says. According to the actress, it was her performance in earlier films which helped her bag the role. Komalee has also been shooting for a couple of other films – HIT 2 and Sebastian. While she plays an intense role in HIT 2, she is a village belle in the latter.

“Getting used to three different roles and their patterns was a bit challenging. It was also a new experience for me, shooting for three different roles at once. But the experience taught me a lot about filmmaking,” explains Komalee, who was born in Vizag and later moved to Mumbai. She is a classical dancer and a theatre artiste.

“Director Sekhar Kammula was one of the reasons I chose a career in films. I was inspired after watching his film Happy Days, and wanted to get into showbiz,” she reveals, and expresses hope that she would one day play the leading lady in his films.
