Shalini Pandey | Shalini Pandey got the same recognition as Vijay Devarakonda got fame with ‘Arjun Reddy’. Everyone appreciated that the new girl did it naturally. Since Boney is doing well, she got opportunities in Bollywood as well as Tollywood. Shalini Pandey charms everyone with her innocent looks..
We are Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh. Ammananna wanted to get a good job in some corporate company after engineering and settle down in life. But, I like movies. I started trying without the knowledge of the people at home, fearing where they would be scolded if they found out about it. Director Sandeep Vanga called me for an audition after seeing my Facebook post.
I would have come to Hyderabad, but I don’t believe in myself. Nobody knows here. Everything is new. But I was chosen for the movie ‘Arjun Reddy’. My journey started unexpectedly. At that time I was very embarrassed because I did not know Telugu. As luck would have it, ‘Arjun Reddy’ was a huge success. Everyone liked Preeti’s role. My grandmother still calls me by that name.
‘I don’t know what to do. You have to become a perfect southern girl’ said the director. I tried hard to learn Telugu. Although it seemed difficult at first, it gradually became a habit. I learned to cry without glycerin with ‘Arjun Reddy’.
I liked the films ‘Mahanati’, ‘NTR (protagonist)’, ‘118’ and also a small role in the bilingual film ‘Silence’. I acted opposite Ranveer Singh in ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’. Currently, Aamir Khan’s son Junaid Khan is playing a key role in the film ‘Maharaja’, which is being introduced as a hero.
My first film in Bollywood ‘Bamphad’ was also criticized by many. Because I was pregnant in that movie. I changed my body for the role. Anyone wants to meet a character with good glamour. I don’t care about that.
We are Indian cinema. We should avoid separating north and south. Lately, South movies are also getting great success in the North. Good movies are popular anywhere. I am a big fan of Kamal Haasan. Ever since I saw ‘Chachi 420’, I fell in love with him. I enjoy the comedy timing and action in Kamalji. Rekha, Madhuri Dixit, Kareena, Preity Zinta… there are many actors who I look up to. No thoughts of marriage at the moment. Focusing on your career.
