Pavana's recent make over has indeed grabbed some eye balls and her confidence level has benefitted from the attention. It has also resulted in her bagging yet another good project.

"I agree my new pictures did create a buzz, but for this particular character in Nammagagi, I was selected by Raghuram after he auditioned me. He  chose me only after he thought I could do justice to the role. Here my  looks did not come in handy but  I was in because of the way I could fit into the story," says Pavana.

Pavana is one of the new comers to look out for.  The actress believes that she has laid a good foundation for her career with films like Gombegala Love and Jatta.

She says these films have given her an identity and helped her to prove herself and bag different roles. "Nammagagi will be my fifth film and luckily each role is in contrast with my previous characters. Everybody believes that success comes with a good break through films that usually run a hundred days. In may case, the roles I chose have allowed me to get that next big break. Initially, I thought I was taking risks with experimental roles but luckily that has helped me to create a brand for myself," Pavana says.

Nammagagi will go on floors in November and Pavana is happy to share screen space with establish actors like Vijay and Radhika. "I had some negative thoughts about  sharing screen space with other actors, but I overcame the fear with Jatta which had two heroines. Nammagagi will see Radhika and me on separate tracks. My entire schedule will take place in Malaysia. I am looking forward to it with much curiosity and will learn from the two established actors as to how they plan their performances," she says.
