Harika Unlike other Actresses

Harika takes a bow!

She’s done loads of commercials in Mumbai. And now she’s even changed her screen name from Payal Ghosh to Harika. This leggy lass has already made her presence felt in Tollywood with her debut film. Harika had always been keen to do films and grabbed the role when Chandrasekhar offered her this film. “It was a great learning experience for me. I think I am privileged to have worked with a director like him,” gushes the actress. Picking up Telugu was a problem, but on the sets “co-actor Manoj helped a lot with the pronunciation.” Unlike other actresses who have to be calorie conscious right from the beginning, Harika was asked to put on weight for her very first film. Not that she had trouble shedding off all those extra kilos, thanks to her rigorous fitness sessions off-screen.
