Star-studded films give you visibility: Angana Roy

Chennai, June 3 (IANS) Actress Angana Roy, who has been a part of recent star-studded films like Mahesh Babu-starrer “Srimanthudu” and Udhayanidhi Stalin’s “Manithan”, feels such films serve as a great platform to garner visibility for other actors in the project.


“When you work with a superstar like Mahesh Babu, you’re bound to get noticed by a large section of the audience. Even though my portion in the film was limited, I got lot of visibility via the role. Big films give you that kind of visibility,” Angana told IANS.

In “Manithan”, she played Hansika Motwani’s sister.

“You can look at it in two ways. If you want to reach out to the masses, working in a star-studded films really helps. I think the star power in any project gives one the visibility that other projects don’t offer,” she said.

Angana’s latest Telugu release is “Sri Sri”, which released in cinemas today.

“It’s not easy to bag a good role in a male-dominated industry. In ‘Sri Sri’, where I play a full-fledged role, I consider myself the hero of the film. The story revolves around me and it’s in a film like this I get to prove my capability,” she said.

The film, according to Angana, is a revenge drama based on a Marathi film.

“It was an honour to work with veteran actor Krishna, who was Telugu cinema’s first superstar. I play his daughter and the film also features his wife Vijaya Nirmala. They treated me like their own daughter and even invited me home,” she said.

“Sri Sri” features Mahesh Babu’s voice-over. He was also supposed to play a cameo.

“He got stuck with the shoot and release of ‘Brahmotsavam’, and hence, he couldn’t be part of the project. Instead, the makers roped in his brother-in-law Sudheer Baby has played his part,” she said.

Angana has a project each in Tamil and Telugu in her kitty.
