'First Day First Show' is the title of a comedy entertainer backed by director Anudeep KV of 'Jathi Ratnalu' fame. Poornodaya Movie Creations' Srija Edida is bankrolling the comedy. The comedy will head to theatres on September 2.
In this interview, its female lead Sanchita Bashu talks about her background, what 'FDFS' has in store, and more.
I am from Bihar. I made videos and clips as a TikTok star. I got selected for 'FDFS' based on one such video after the makers of 'FDFS' contacted my manager. While not many actors from Bihar are there down South, there are many Biharis in the Hindi film industry, (late) Sushant Singh Rajput being one of them.
My mother supported my dreams a lot from the beginning. I have always been interested in acting since childhood. I am studying 12th Class currently. I will be continuing my studies. Academic qualification is quite important. I will be doing graduation starting mid-2023. I have got 2.1 million followers on Instagram. My followers are excited about my feature film debut, 'FDFS'. My friends, too, are elated.
Since I don't know Telugu, I was very nervous on the first day of the shoot. But the directors (Vamsidhar Goud and Lakshmi Narayana P) of 'FDFS' and writer Anudeep KV sir made me feel very comfortable.
Everyone encouraged me a lot on set. Both the directors were equally fun to work with. As for my character, she is traditional, a girl who lived in the 2000s. Laya is a shy girl and is a big fan of Pawan Kalyan sir. On the first day of her college, she tells the hero that she wants to watch the FDFS of 'Kushi'. In Bihar, everyone watches Telugu movies as Hindi-dubbed versions. I did watch 'Kushi' after bagging 'FDFS'.
I have watched Anudeep sir's 'Jathi Ratnalu' and I enjoyed it a lot. The director of that movie has written 'FDFS'. Like 'JR', this movie, too, is a full-on comedy.
I want to work with the likes of Dhanush sir, Allu Arjun sir and Prabhas sir. I like their work. I want to do films that the family audience will love to watch. When you are stressed out, comedy films are the best bet. So, I want to do comedies as well.
