Dushara is a new kid on the block. The actress will be making her film debut in Bodhai Yeri Budhi Maari. Unlike most others who entered the field of acting by chance, Dushara says that she always wanted to become an actor. She says, “Acting has always been my passion. I began my career as a model and slowly developed interest in acting, too. Kathir, the script writer of the film saw my Instagram profile and showed it to director Chandru. They called me for an audition and everything fell in place on after another. I play the lead in the film. My character is very interesting… I hate the hero, but am forced to marry him. I have two looks in the film — homely and glam. But the transition is done smoothly.”
Dushara is also a dancer. “I have been learning dance for a long time, now. I learnt free style from Sheriff master. Dancing is my lifeline and I express my feelings through dance. I also went to Mime Gopi for a two-week acting class. It helped me a great deal,” she says.
The Dindigul-based actress says that hard work matters when it comes to getting opportunities. She says, “If you respect the industry, you are sure to get work. It took five years to get my debut film. So, I am certain that things will fall in place slowly but steadily.” Does she have a wishlist of directors she wants to work with? “I want to do a film with Bala sir and Mani sir. I have seen all of Bala sir’s films, and it has affected me a lot. With Mani sir, I just love the way he portrays every character. I admire and love Aditi Rao Hydariand Nayanthara. With each of the film I do, I just want to become a better version of myself,” she signs off.
