What started out as a hobby during high school, soon turned out to be a full-time profession for this city girl. She has so far acted in several tele-ventures including ones in Telugu and Tamil apart from Kannada, and also has a few movies to her credit. The Bengaluru hudugi who is busy with projects in other languages, makes a comeback to Kannada television with Sarva Mangala Mangalye on Star Suvarna. Actress Aishwarya Pisse speaks to Bengaluru Chronicle about her tele-journey, and much more.
“It was my mother who wanted to take up acting as a profession in her younger days, but was unable to realise those dreams. For me, it was just a hobby when I joined the theatre group Vijayanagar Bimba. Initially, it was like any other class a tenth standard girl joins. I started doing roles which soon paved a way for better opportunities. However, I did not accept any until I finished my pre university,” says Aishwarya.
It was Kulvadhu, in which she made her television debut and later Punar Vivaha which earned her recognition and immense popularity.
“After a couple of supporting roles including the one in Punar Vivaha where I essayed the role of Meghana, the audience started recognising my work. In fact, all my loved ones and fans who adore my work know me as Meghana kulli,” she adds.
In between, she even acted in a couple of star-studded movies like Santhu Straight Forward where she portrayed the role of Rocking Star Yash’s sister on the silver screen. In Srikanta, she was paired opposite Vijay Raghavendra in the multi-starrer that was helmed by Century Star Shivarajkumar.
Following Girija Kalyana, a Kannada serial produced by Arka Media better known for their Bahubali series, she took up series in Telugu and Tamil serials too.
“I recently finished my BBM from Maharani College. I also plan to finish my masters in business management and work at a corporate in the future. Working in other languages was a learning experience. Now, I am back to portray a role which I had been doing in other languages. This particular role is of a girl who stands for justice. She is innocent, and it also has a cute love story attached to it, with a guy who is orthodox that is the twist to tale,” she says.
Working around the clock has also meant that she is unable to take up films. “As I am working in three different languages, all my dates are booked at present. I haven’t even taken break for myself (for so long). It is only when shooting is cancelled for a day or two due to technical reasons that I get to relax,” the actress reveals. She has also essayed a lead role in the Kannada movie Muttu Mavutha. She plays a village girl in a film that revolves around a mahout who trains elephants....
