The makers of 777 Charlie, who were keen on bringing in a fresh face for the lead role of the film, auditioned a whopping 2700 youngsters before finalising on Sangeetha. The Rakshit Shetty-starrer, which marks the directorial debut of Kiranraj K, is presented by Pushkar Films, and produced under Paramvah Studios. Interestingly, the film features three Labradors in key roles. Sangeetha joins the league of those who have made a transition from television to silver screen. An established name in small screen, Sangeetha shot to fame with serial HaraHara Mahadeva. Sangeetha credits social media which gave her a platform and helped her to get through the auditions. “I got interested seeing the posters (which had a dog) by the production house. 

Knowing Rakshit’s interest in unique subjects, I felt this will be another interesting film from the makers. The moment I saw ‘Looking for a lead heroine for 777 Charlie’, I wanted to try my luck to get into the project. When I expressed my interest to audition for the role to Pushkar, whom I was connected on through Facebook, he called me over to Bengaluru.  I took the screen test with director Kiranraj. To be honest, I was hesitant when I heard that 2700 other actors were auditioning for the same role. But I was even more surprised when the makers informed me that I was their final choice, “ she says. 

Prior to taking up 777 Charlie, she has just wrapped up shoot for a film, and was in the process of getting ready for another she had signed on. “For the next six months, I will stay committed to 777 Charlie. Also, since the film involves shooting with the dogs, I want to build a rapport with the pets,” says the animal lover.
