Malayalam actress Anupama Parameswaran has featured in Telugu films more than she has in Malayalam films, where she started her career. Having made her debut with Premam, Anupama shot to fame with her innocent looks in the film and was even cast in the Telugu remake of Premam. The real kick actually came in the form Trivikram’s Attarintiki Daaredhi, in which she plays a girl who can do anything to win her love. Speaking to a leading daily, Anupama talks about how films happened in her life and why Telugu is so special to her.
“The Telugu audience has accepted me quickly and I like the language. Now it is like my second home and the love and respect they’ve given me is unimaginable,” Anupama Parameswaran told DC. “I made my debut with the Malayalam film Premam. It’s a miracle and before that film, I had never thought about acting as no one from our family had a film background. I am a normal middle-class girl and I never dreamt that I would become this big. It happened just by chance and it is a blessing. Only few people get such a chance and I feel that since this opportunity has been given to me, I have to utilise it well,” says Anupama explaining how films happened to her.
Talking about her contemporaries like Sai Pallavi and Nivetha Thomas, Anupama says, “When they are giving fantastic performances, it motivates me and the others to do different kind of roles and perform well. When I like others’ films, I send them messages. I, too, get a lot of messages for my films from others.“
