Whenever somebody invites him to a function, they tell him, please bring your daughter along. One day, he asked me, what's happening to these people.
Appudu Appaudu, my first Telugu film, didn't do well. Because of my father's aversion to my acting in films, I didn't work for a year. After that, I did an English film 19 Revolutions directed by Chicago-based Shridhar Reddy. I played a rich girl who wanted to rob her father. It is an intellectual film which helped me ascertain my acting capabilities. The movie did very well in the US.
