Ithought I was extremely expressive as an actor, but all that changed when I began working with Sreenu Vaitla,” Lavanya Tripathi laughs as she recalls her experience of shooting for Mister. The actress, who plays Chandra Mukhi in the romantic entertainer, is all praise for the director who helped her to push herself to do more. 


In the film, Lavanya plays the role of a naive and chirpy girl, who comes from a royal family. “I wore a lot of half-saris throughout the film and Roopa Vaitla, who designed the costumes, did a wonderful job. My role is like sunshine on a bleak day.

She’s naive, and chirpy, but doesn’t even realise how funny she is. If I ever meet a girl like her in my real life, I would treat her like my sister,” she says.


A few months ago, when the film was being shot in Ooty, Varun Tej suffered a major ankle injury on the last day of the shoot. Despite all the pain, he came back to complete the shoot on the day and the entire team was amazed with his resilience. 


Not surprisingly, the actress, who is from Dehradun, fell in love with Ooty and Chikmagalur. “The only problem was shooting in locations where they are plenty of leeches.

There was a scene which we had to shoot near a waterfall and all I could think of was what if I fall and got covered by leeches. Sreenu Vaitla was kind enough to move to a different location (laughs). Right from my first film (Andhala Rakshasi) to Mister, leeches haven’t left me alone,” she laughs.
