Two years after she made her debut in Telugu, Lavanya Tripathi is still referred to as Midhuna, the character she had played in Andala Rakshasi. In fact, she left such a strong impression that some of the filmmakers .She has worked with have reportedly asked her to emote the same way she did in her debut film."It feels nice that people still remember what I had done two years ago, but seriously, I want to do all kinds of films. Initially, I had reservations about certain things in the industry and even today, my approach towards work is a little different. It has taken me a while to 'fit in' mentally in this industry and I think I'm more at ease now," explains Lavanya.In search of strong characters.After a brief lull, the actress is juggling between the sets of three of her upcoming films and in a way, it seems like she has too much on her plate all of a sudden.
So how does it feel to make a comeback, of sorts, after almost a year? "It's not a comeback. It's been less than a year since my previous film Doosukeltha released and I played a cameo in Manam. I feel it's better to take your time and sign films where you have a strong character, than taking up films on a trot," explains the native of Dehradun.Currently, she's shooting for an untitled bilingual film, where she's cast opposite Vaibhav Reddy and it's got her all excited. "I think very few actresses have played a role like this, which is why I am even more nervous about it. I've been part of the film right from its inception.
It's not really a bilingual since the Telugu and Tamil versions are being directed by two different directors, who have their own vision and sensibilities.And every day, I've to shoot for both the versions. It's crazy," she says.
