Richa Panai to play girl-next-door


After Rakshaka Bhatudu, Richa Panai will next be seen playing a girl-next-door in an untitled comic caper directed by Sreedhar Seepana.

Talking about her role, Richa shares, “Earlier, I played extreme roles — either glamorous or village belle; but my role in this film will be a blend of both. I play the owner of an ad agency, and it’s a role with a bit of attitude. I’ll be seen sporting a mix of western and traditional attires. The best part is that mid-way into the film, my character transforms and reveals different shades.”

The Lucknow-raised actress heaps praises on the film’s director Sreedhar. “He’s got great clarity of thought and also enacts every scene, so that makes things very easy for us. I am also fascinated with his attention to detail. The shooting experience has been satisfactory since I have now got a hang of the language (Telugu),” says Richa.
