Maryada Ramanna fame Saloni Aswani was in the city to talk about her latest movie Bodygaurd, starring Venkatesh and Trisha. Saloni, who plays Venkatesh’s wife in the movie, says about her character Swathi, “She’s a grey character who steals Venky away from his true love. I don’t ever want to be that person and I don’t think I ever will.”

“When I was initially approached to play the character, having seen the movie, I wondered what my character would be like. Especially since in the Hindi movie Hazel Keech doesn’t have much to do. But Rajamouli told me not to worry. And he’s lived up to his word.” Talking about the Telugu version of Bodyguard film, she says, “The movie was different in from its Hindi and Tamil counterpart. Salman Khan was this macho-dude who could tackle any one or any number. The same way, in Tamil, Vijay played this super strong person who could handle anything. Yet, Venky was different. He was macho yet sensitive and sweet, making the  his character all the more easier to relate to. There was a lot more emotion involved and that was where even my character did better than the others.”

Considering that her character exits the story in the second half, Saloni is happy about the clmaix to her character happening then. “Any movie, if the second half is bad, it will not do well. In that sense, I was happy that the main point of character was elaborated on the second half. People will remember me and not be disappointed by what they see.”

Saloni will next be seen in the Balakrishna-starrer Mahadev Naidu.
