I’d love to play Sridevi on screen: Tamannaah Bhatia
Tamannaah Bhatia, whose latest release was Petromax, a remake of Telugu hit Anando Brahma, is in a happy space. “I see that I balance roles that come my way. I am cool with anything that excites the actor in me. It can be something on the lines of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy or the Devi franchise. The only criteria is that it should resonate with the audience,” she says.
Why does the actor have to repeat the horror genre? “Petromax is different from the horror films I have done,” she tells, and quickly adds, though she had no plans of doing a horror-comedy, she changed her mind when she caught Anando Brahma. “It had a huge star cast, and I was one of the characters. That got me interested. For a change, the film wasn’t centred around me!”
Tamannaah doesn’t like to categorise films. “I treat each one of them the same, irrespective of the budget and star cast. But I had a great time shooting Petromax,” she assures.
The actor says she’s not apprehensive of shouldering remakes. “When you are a part of remakes, comparisons are bound to happen. But I think as a team, we have done justice to the original script,” she observes.
