After a slew of Tamil and Malayalam films, Mirnaa is now trying to create a splash in Tollywood. In her debut Telugu film, which is a Phani-Krishna directorial, she is paired opposite Aadi Saikumar. “I’ve been waiting for my Tollywood debut for a long time, and I am glad I’m finally making a foray,” says Mirnaa, adding that her role and the film’s script had her hooked.
Apparently, the film’s producer K.K. Radha Mohan decided to cast the actress after watching her performance in her Kalavani Mappillai and Big Brother. And she got on board the film’s casting after she had a narration over a zoom call.
While telling us that the film is a love story and that she’s looking forward to commencing the shoot, Mirnaa also states that she has started picking up Telugu for her part.
“Learning a language gives me a high and I believe dubbing gives life to a character on the screen. I’d learnt Tamil so I could dub for my parts in the last two Tamil films I did and hopefully, I’ll be dubbing for my lines in this Telugu film too,” explains the actress.
“Moreover, I have some Tollywood friends including actresses and music composers, who speak to me in Telugu so I can hone my language skills.” Incidentally, the actress had quit her IT job to pursue her childhood dream of becoming an actress. “The regular job was not motivating enough. When I finally got the call to do films, I jumped into it and have not since looked back,” she signs off.
