Exclusive Interview: I Apologize With Folded Hands

Hansika Motwani, the radiant star who captured the hearts of Tollywood’s youth in her 20s, left an indelible mark with her stellar performances in blockbuster romantic action films like ‘Desamuduru with Stylish Star Allu Arjun,’ ‘Kantri with Global star Jr. Ntr,’ and ‘Kandireega with Ram Potineni.’ Now, she graces the silver screen once again, taking the lead in the upcoming heroine-centric movie titled ‘My Name Is Shruthi.’

In a recent interview with Gulte.com, conducted by the articulate Lokesh Bandi, Hansika shared insights into the gap in her filmography, citing an excess of Telugu offers that failed to attract her due to dull scripts.

Handling criticism with grace, Hansika expressed a philosophy of humility—apologizing with folded hands for negativity and expressing gratitude for positive feedback. Acknowledging the weight of being the audience puller in a project, she conveyed the pressure on her shoulders while confidently assuring that both the movie and her performance would be nothing short of impressive.

Reflecting on the current generation’s talent, Hansika praised the charm and success of actress Sreeleela. Discussing the evolving trend of married actresses working in films, she pointed to Kareena Kapoor Khan as a trendsetter, emphasizing the changing landscape where women are expected to remain employed continuously.

When queried about potential collaborations with her debut film co-star Allu Arjun, Hansika redirected the question to director Puri Jagannadh and Allu Arjun himself. Addressing rumours about an item song, she clarified that no offers had come her way, keeping the audience in suspense.

Fans can catch the full interview on Gulte.com’s YouTube channel, where Lokesh Bandi engages in gripping conversations. As anticipation builds, Hansika’s new movie is scheduled for release on November 17, 2023, promising another chapter in her cinematic journey.
