Parul Yadav

Parul Yadav is just one film old in Kannada, but at present, she tops the charts as one of Sandalwood's talented actresses. The audience have fallen in love with her, as they sway to Pyaarge Aagbittaite. "We feel very lucky and I am thankful to the director, Gurukiran. Now, we don't have to give special invitations to the audiences to watch our film, as Govindaya Namaha has proved to be a big hit," she says in excitement.

The actress did not expect the film to become such a rage. “Nobody from the team expected the movie to do this well. But my family, who don't know a word of Kannada were extremely pleased when they heard the song. My mother had told me that this song will bring me fame and it has truly made me popular,” she says.

Appreciation has certainly come her way. “It's the hard work, which has finally paid-off,” says Parul, adding, "I learnt the difference between a normal Kannada speaking person and how a Muslim girl speaks the language. I used to sit with the assistant director to get the meaning of each and every dialogue and got into the minute details too, before I faced the camera. Finally, mastering the lingo made all the difference,” she says.

Parul was not encouraged by many, when she decided to act opposite Komal. “When people heard that I was working with Komal, they told me that I had lost it. However, I went ahead with the project. Today, it is a slap on all those faces who told me that I had made the wrong choice. In fact, the entire attitude towards me has been quite different because of the film,"

she tells us.

Parul is more than happy to be a part of the sequel, in case, the director wishes to carry it forward. “Films like Laila Majnu and Romeo Juliet are a hit because, the movie ended in love. The same is the case with Govindaya Namaha. I guess, there can be a sequel with marriage and quarrels too, she chuckles.

Considering, Govindaya Namaha is a small budget film, Parul gave equal importance to promotions too. “I believe in blowing our own trumpet so that our film gets noticed, at least initially. Even Aamir Khan feels that the trend has changed and promotions are a must today. It is a part and parcel of our career,” explains Parul, who will soon come to Bangalore. “I want to enjoy the 50 days of success, as I look forward to see my fans' reactions and thank them from the bottom of my heart,” she adds.

As of now, other actresses would certainly like to slip into her shoes. She’s currently been poured with offers from other directors in Kannada as well as from Telugu films.

“People from Andhra Pradesh and Chennai have liked this song and I have become famous there too. I have been approached for a Ravi Teja film, and from another top actor in Telugu industry,” says Parul, who, as of now, prefers to take up more Kannada films over other languages. “I believe in loyalty. This industry has given me a lot of popularity. So I have set my mind to do a couple of more films in Kannada, before I head to other regional language films," she says.
