The actor talks about her upcoming boardroom drama, coping with Covid-19 and shooting in Hyderabad
There couldn’t have been a better season for Tammannah to return to work during the pandemic. Leaving behind the fearful-quarantine days she spent in Hyderabad, the rest of the months have been a thrilling experience for the beauty. After playing many a glamourous role on the screen for over a decade now, Tamannah will be seen in boardroom drama titled 11th Hour.
The story is about a woman who plays a pivotal role in saving a corporate company from an impending crisis. Facing varied tactics and opposition from her rivals, she wades through a male-dominated world, and stands invincible in achieving her dreams. “This was the first script I heard during the lockdown.
I have seen the script change and evolve until we had gone on to the sets. Director Praveen Sattaru, a humble person has translated the script with all his vision and treatment to the film, which I haven’t expected. It’s another journey with the OTT Aha, I have been so lucky to be part of Telugu cinema which is famous all over the country,” she said to the media.
Thanking producer Allu Aravind, Tamannah said, “Allu Aravind garu made me a star from an actor. Hopefully, after 11th Hour, I can transform myself from star to a good actor again. Both things have been possible in my career because of Allu Aravind.” She added that Allu Aravind had been very enthusiastic in dealing with scripts matching his ideas and content with the changing times.
Working on the sets was exhaustive for Tamannah as she had to cope with her health after testing positive for the coronavirus. Thanking her producer U Pradeep, she said, “He has not just been the part of the filmmaking process, but a special individual. When I was shooting in the city, he was the person who took me to the hospital, made sure I got the right kind of treatment, without thinking about the disruption of shooting schedule and other issues he was facing due to losing dates,” she said.
Throwing more light on his upcoming thriller, director Praveen said the series is about portraying human relations and emotions. “No chase scenes and gunfights, it tells a story that happens overnight in a boardroom. The beauty of the series is that it makes your heart race with each and every episode. Tammanah is a guardian angel who taps you and says come back to roots. It talks about human relations and emotions a woman goes through in today’s corporate world.”
