All of 21 years and Urvashi Rautela is already making news. While she has bagged a three movie deal with T Series and is currently working for them in Sanam Re, her kitty also has Great Grand Masti made under Balaji Films as well as a film to be produced by Ramesh Turani. Meanwhile, her first South Indian film will be in Kannada. She will be seen opposite Darshan in Mr Airavatha to be released this week.

Although she does not believe the makers when they told her that according to their search, she was ‘one of the most beautiful girls in India’, her meeting with Sandesh Nagaraj, the father of producer N Sandesh and director AP Arjun yielded positive results and boosted her confidence. “The deal was signed in half an hour,” she says.

My family likes him a lot and my friends find him handsome. More so, I was surrounded by warmth and I was taken care of by the producer and the director and I should also include the lightman and the spotboys, who were helpful. It was a smooth journey and I am sure it will reflect on the screen too,” says Urvashi.

Being the latest B-Town sensation, the young actress has garnered enough attention in Sandalwood and she says, “I have a lot of offers in Kannada, but my contract is such that I cannot sign any before Mr Airavatha’s release,” she notes.

And while she stayed in Bengaluru and Mysuru for  Mr Airavatha, the budding actress made sure to meet her good friend Ramesh Dembla while she used all her time to shop for silk and Kanchivaram sarees with her mother. “I did shop a lot along with my mother, who was happy to have bought the most beautiful sarees for herself and a few for me. I also liked Mysuru and found it a very peaceful place. These are the memories I take back from South India and from the sets of Mr Airavatha,” she signs off.
