Summary

In my first Telugu movie 'Jai Bolo Telangana', produced and directed by
Mr. N Shankar and released in early 2011, I've performed the character of 'Katthi' who is an educated & playful girl (from 'Telangana' region of Andhra Pradesh) but, having studied at Delhi, is oblivious to the underlying socio-political issues of her state. At Osmania University, as the closest friend of the heroine (from ‘Andhra’ region) ‘Katthi’ grasps the issues of Telangana-movement demanding for separate state-hood and, joins the movement. Mr. N Shankar has made revolutionary Telugu movies like Sriramulayya, Encounter and Jayam Manadera. His films have won A.P. State Nandi Awards, A.P. Cinegoer’s Association Annual Awards, Manikchand Film Fare Awards, Bharatamuni Awards etc. Jai Bolo Telangana was nominated to be screened at South Asian Film Festival at Goa in September 2011.
