'Neetho' is an upcoming youthful entertainer starring Aberaam Varma in the role of an Insurance agent who falls in love with an affluent woman. Ahead of the film's release on October 14 in theatres, actress Saathvika Raj, who plays the female lead, talks about her character. She also says that the film can't be bracketed with run-of-the-mill romantic dramas.
The film also stars Rajeev Kanakala, Ravi Varma, Sunjiit Akkinepally, Neha Krishna, Kavya Raman, Apoorva Srinivasan, Mohit Baid, Pavithra Lokesh, among others.
In 'Neetho', my character comes from a well-to-do business family. She has been engaged to a guy. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, she gets into inevitable problems. How she faces them is what defines her character.
I would say that 'Neetho' is a light-hearted love story. At the same time, it is not a regular love story by any measure. Wedding insurance is a theme that runs through 'Neetho'.
Vivek Sagar's music is going to be a highlight of the film. The songs are lovely. He knows what kind of tunes work for a story. (The Hariharan-crooned 'Lalaana' has been a hit).
Aberaam is a wonderful co-star. It was really great working with him. He has been a supportive actor. He helped me in pulling off some scenes really well.
When this film came my way, I found the story completely different. The treatment and characterizations pulled me toward the film. We have seen a number of love stories, but this film is different in a lot of ways.
