Ameeta Kulal, a Kannada actress, is the latest in a long line of Kannada actors to break into the Telugu small screen business. Rowdy Gari Pellam, in which she stars with Kannada actors Adarsh and Sujatha Akshaya, is now airing.
Ameeta, who began her career in Sandalwood with movies such as Aa Eradu Varshagalu, Jagath Kiladi and Gift Box, says, “Telugu television is flooded with Kannada actors. I am glad to join the evergrowing list. I was wondering how audiences accept actors from other industries here. After I stepped into Telugu television, I realized that it all boils down to how we get into the skin of the character to strike a chord. This is what matters, not where we are from. I am happy that people are loving my onscreen character, Eshwari.”
Elaborating on her character, Ameeta explains, “Eswhari is a teacher who doesn’t want to harm anyone and takes her job seriously. Having Adarsh, who is from Karnataka, as my co-star helped me settle down in the initial days. As I know a bit of Sanskrit, it became easy for me to pick up the nuances of Telugu.”
