Shanvi Srivastav

She is from Varanasi, but Shanvi Srivastav is quite popular in southern films and now yearns to play rural characters that are contrary to her real personality.

"I need to be open to different roles. While I've played city-bred characters in my first two films, I really look forward to play a rural south Indian girl in the future. I want to play roles that are contrary to my personality and ethnicity," Shanvi told IANS.

She recently completed shooting for her second Telugu project "Adda", in which she is paired opposite Sushant.

"I still remember when Sushant, my co-star, asked me how will I manage if I were to play a typical rural south Indian girl? I told him that deep within me lies a cute south Indian girl, who is always ready to drape a half-sari and pose two 'chotis', if needed," she added.

Adda will she her as a "fashion designing" student and says she "loves" her character.

"I'm expected to be always stylish and classy," said Shanvi, who recently completed her graduation and says that she is now ready to accept more projects.

"Even though I got offers while working for 'Adda', I couldn't take them up because I had to take a break for exams. Now that I have completed my B. Com exams, I will go back to Hyderabad and take up projects," she said.

She aspires to diversify to other industries, but said:

"I want to do films in other languages as well, but for the time being I want to concentrate on Telugu. I want to do some good films here before I plan to diversify. However, if I manage to get a really exciting project in other language, then I might take it up."
