After the back-to-back super successes of Bhale Bhale Magadivoy and Soggade Chinni Nayana in (2015), Lavanya Tripathi went on a signing spree and was part of a slew of projects. However, it took her almost four years to strike success at the box office again.
“I signed a few films believing that the scripts would be appreciated, but unfortunately they were not,” explains Lavanya, admitting that she made wrong choices.
“I realised that it is very significant to have good filmography, where people judge you by the quality of the work and not quantity. So, I started to go easy on signing films and reviewed the kind of offers I was getting. There were hardly any interesting roles, so I felt, instead of signing for the heck of it, I’d rather not sign,” she explains.
The Srirastu Subhamastu star further reveals that failures taught her to be more independent, and believe in her instincts, apart from looking at the script in totality.
“I started believing in my instincts and have been following them. After listening to the script, if I instantly feel like doing the film, I will take it up. The recent super hit Arjun Suravaram is the first step in that direction, and for my forthcoming film, A1 Express too, I followed the same process,” she says.
