Anupama says she is taking it slow. And true to her words, her second screen outing has hit the screens precisely one year post Premam. “The feedback has been so good,” she smiles. Mary fans are in for a surprise as Anupama sports a totally different get-up in A Aa, her Telugu debut. “In Premam it was a plain, no make-up look, but Nagvalli, my character in A Aa, is all decked up in loud dhavanis and ornaments,” she says. In the film she plays an outright rural girl, the daughter of the local landlord. “She has no shades of Mary and is a little rude and arrogant,” she explains about her role in the film that stars Nithin and Samantha in the leads.

My co-actors, though big stars, were so friendly and down-to-earth. They never let me feel like an outsider.” Anupama, who has also dubbed for the film, says everyone on the location helped her with Telugu diction. “There wasn’t any particular tutor; everyone from the director to the mess boy helped me with the language. Then, Nagavally is not a full-length character and it was not so difficult to dub a few lines,” she adds.

Anupama says she had no qualms about her limited screen space since it was a ‘Trivikram movie’. “It was a great team and Nagavalli is not a character that comes your way very often. I knew I could make a terrific debut with her. And then, since I am not totally comfortable with the language part I was not sure whether I could pull off a full-length character,” she says.

The pretty actress will be next seen in the Telugu remake of Premam, reprising her own role in the original. “A lot of offers are coming after the release of A Aa and some discussions are on. But I want to take up the best only,” she says. 

Meanwhile, she will be making her Tamil debut with Kodi starring Dhanush in the lead. And does that mean she has no plans to return to Mollywood? “I would love to. I am here only because of Mary and I will jump and grab a good Malayalam offer,” she winds up.
