An actor who forayed into movies with the 2013 film — Alias Janaki, Anisha Ambrose says that she wouldn’t have enjoyed this much in any other profession. Having done some good roles in Manamantha, Karvva and Run, she has some amazing work lined up. Here is a tête-à-tête with the young and talented actor.
When and how did you stumble upon acting?
It was in 2013 when I was working for Dell, Hyderabad, that I received a message on Facebook asking me to audition for a Telugu film. The banner was Sangamitra Arts and their last film was Panja at that time.
If you have to sum up your journey so far in the industry…
By God’s grace, it has all worked out beautifully; I don’t think I would’ve enjoyed being a part of any other profession more than acting. We all face challenges in every walk of life but, when you enjoy your work, it becomes easier to overcome them.
I will be working in Tharun Bhascker’s Eenagaraniki Emaindi, and a Telugu-Tamil bilingual project directed by Nizar Shafi. I will also be making my Tamil debut with Vanjagar Ulagam.
Any actor and director who you would love to work with?
I really wanted to work with Tharun Bhascker and that’s already happening. I hope I get to work with all the actors from the industry!
What would bring satisfaction to you as an actor?
Portraying a mean negative character can be interesting. Not that it would give me any satisfaction (laughingly). But, it’s because playing a character that you’re not in real life is always exciting and gives you an insight into the mind of a person like that. You learn a lot and it helps you grow personally too.
If you’re not busy with shooting, what do you like doing?
I like to keep myself busy, so I pick up a hobby. It could be anything! It has been painting for a while now. Just recently, my friends and I met up and had a painting competition — just for fun. But, it turned out to be such a relaxing exercise.
