'ISHQ', starring Teja Sajja and Priya Varrier, will release on April 23. In this interview, Priya Varrier talks about working on the thriller and how it is a different film.
'ISHQ' is not a love story. This is my second Telugu film. It's an interesting story and the audience will keep wondering what might happen next in the story.
My character is of a simple college-going girl. At the same time, she has got a lot of self-respect and boldness. In 'Check', I didn't have a full-fledged role. In 'ISHQ', I have a full-fledged one.
Although I have played a college girl, which I am in real life, she is not anything like the real me. When they approached me for this movie, I didn't have to think much. I had watched the Malayalam original. There are a little bit of changes but the film is a faithful remake. The tastes of the Telugu audience are a bit different. Keeping that in mind, some changes have been made.
This is the first time I have acted with someone who is close to my age. Teja Sajja was fun to work with.
It's true that I have lost some weight from my first movie, which released three years back.
It feels great to have releases in Telugu. I had waited for it for long. But for the pandemic, this would have happened last year itself. The result of 'Check' was disappointing but I enjoyed playing the role.
