Hyderabad: Telangana’s most popular folk singer Mangli proved herself with her very first role in the Telugu film industry, as she debuted with ‘Maestro’, wherein the singer was seen as a lottery ticket seller. The actor did complete justice to the role she played. Mangli was seen along with Racha Ravi.
Sharing her experience exclusively with ‘Hyderabad Today’, the singer-cum-actor says, “I felt happy working with good actors and this is my first film in acting. Though I was nervous in the beginning, they gave me a lot of confidence.”
“I’m not a person who drives a lot but after getting on to the sets, on the first day, they asked me to drive an auto. So, I have practised for a while and then started driving it. I should also thank Racha Ravi who helped me learn how to drive an auto,” adds Mangli, with a huge smile.
The singer, who has also crossed one million followers on Facebook recently, is now trying her luck with acting too. Quiz her about what kind of roles she likes, and she says, “I love to play villain roles, experiment with new things — as these surely give me more satisfaction.”
The folk singer is also planning to sing a song on harassment of women in public places, as she says she feels quite disturbed by the Saidabad rape case.
