Screenspace doesn’t matter to me, says Ruhani Sharma

Published: 31st Aug 2021 7:22 pm

The subtleness in her emotions, pleasant screen presence are what define actor Ruhani Sharama. Post the success of the Telugu romantic drama ‘Chi La Sow’, the actor got to do a couple of films which have lesser screenspace — Vishwaksen-starrer ‘HIT: The First Case’ and ‘Dirty Hari’. “Screenspace doesn’t matter to me if I am convinced with the story. Even if it is two scenes, I would try to give the best and be part of it. However, the overall film and character that have a scope for performance also twitch me a lot while choosing the script,” she says.

Ruhani is playing the lead opposite Srinivas Avasarala in the upcoming romantic comedy ‘Nootokka Jillala Andagadu’. “It’s a story of a bald guy who is not comfortable with the way he appears. And how he discovers himself after realising that he doesn’t look externally good. He accepts the fact and loves the way he is — that’s the theme of it,” she adds.

Although a slew of films in Bollywood harp on drama — the protagonist desperately looking for a girl to marry, and the troubles using a wig, and his bluff getting exposed, the actor says ‘Nootokka Jillala Andagadu’ is quite quirky and a different narrative altogether.

Directed by Rachakonda Vidyasagar, the film’s screenplay and the writing were rendered by Avasarala himself. “Both share a good bonding on and off the sets. I didn’t feel Srini had written it and someone else was directing it. You’ll see me throughout the film, basically I am the soul of the film. I help the protagonist in his journey,” Ruhani says.

Definition of beauty

In Ruhani’s perspective, beauty is something that one feels inside, from the heart. “Nothing to do with physical appearance. Accepting yourself completely no matter how the outward appearance may seem. You might feel that I am speaking in the context of the film. No! Recently, I happened to chat with some of my friends and learned how married women feel embarrassed to have a husband with bald head. I was shocked to hear it. I belong to north India; I really don’t mind such things. Yes, films like ‘Bala’ and ‘Ujada Chaman’ talk specifically about the subject, but my Telugu film is quite ‘hatke’.”

Just three years into Telugu cinema, Ruhani is being showered with a lot of love from audiences. “That’s because of my character in ‘Chi La Sow’. Perhaps, it led to more offers. Whenever I meet people, I am recognised as Anjali rather than being noted as Ruhani,” she smiles.

Making her debut in Tamil and Malayalam films, Ruhani wants to try genres of love stories, psycho thrillers. “I’ve done very intelligent and dark characters in Malayalam. Although I am doing a film titled ‘Agra’ in Hindi, the process of stepping into Bollywood is big. I am open to Telugu right now. Presently, I am doing a film under actor Nani’s production, titled ‘Meet Cute’, Telugu anthology from Eros International where I am playing a role opposite Satyaraj garu,” she adds.
