Not many actors who foray into Kollywood, have had the chance of debuting with a big role. And Nandini, who will be seen in PVP Cinema’s thriller titled Grahanam,  says she is lucky indeed. The film aims to be a cerebral experience. The thriller features Krishna, Kayal Chandran and Karunakaran in the lead.  Produced by PVP Cinema in association with Shoban Babu and Karthik of Big Print, Grahanam is being helmed by another debutant Elan. Elan put in a lot of efforts to bring in a heroine, who would be able to carry the intensity of the lead character.

The girl has a number of shades throughout the movie. The director has given my character ample scope to perform, almost on an equal footing with the two heroes — Krishna and Chandran. “He is a thorough professional at this young age and is completely clear about what he wants. He plans and executes very well, thereby reducing the scope for any wastage. The entire team was great fun to work with,” says Nandini.  The actor is all praise for her co-stars, especially Krishna. “Krishna was the booster for us in the stressful night shoot. In fact, the entire shoot was during the night, so it helped a lot to have a co-star, who could lighten up the mood by making everyone laugh, and reduce the stress levels. Chandran was also an interesting person to work with,” she added.  The actor reckons she is lucky to have landed a meaty role in the beginning. ”Where ever I go, I get the feedback that I am lucky to be launched by a major corporate like PVP. I am indeed a lucky girl and it is reflected by the meaty role I play in Grahanam. Audience can watch out for my character as it portrays a modern woman in a different dimension,” she adds.

Nandini talks about her journey to filmdom. The Computer Science graduate says, “After winning the Miss Andhra Pradesh title in 2010, I continued to do ad films. I was into this project after an audition. I went on to attend intensified classes in acting, dialogue practices and rehearsals before the shoot. It was quite different from my earlier films Maya in Telugu and Kushikushiyagi in Kannada.”
