Raashi Khanna about actresses in commercial movies
Actresses will have very stereotyped characters in most of the commercial movies. The reason for that is the heroes are often elevated and the story is highlighted and the actresses will be in the background generally. So most of the time, commercial movie actresses will be limited to glamor treats in songs and comedy scenes in the love tracks. Actress Raashi Khanna who has made her debut with Oohalu Gusagusalaade, says that the times have changed. The actress will be seen in Maruti and Sai Dharam Tej’s Prati Roju Pandage and in a recent interview she says that actresses in commercial movies are limited to little screen time than compared to heroes but that doesn’t mean that they have to play dumb and limit for comedy and glamor roles. She says that the times have changed and the audiences are open-minded. “I have worked with directors who share my sensibilities and I am happy about that. Actresses in commercial movies have limited screen space and prominence too probably. But that doesn’t exempt them from being sensible.” The actress is also known for her comedy timing and purely because of that trait, director Maruti said that he picked her for the movie Prati Roju Pandage as her role is going to be hilarious. The actress will also be seen in Venky Mama playing opposite Naga Chaitanya.
