Hello Folks! This week’s edition of “Blab with Sandy” has Myra Sareen on-board with us. Myra Sareen is debuting as a female lead in Ram Gopal Varma’s “Officer” opposite Akkineni Nagarjuna. Let’s dive into the blab I had with her:
Sandy: Hello Myra! What’s Up? Firstly, Congratulations for your debut vehicle “Officer” 🙂
Myra: Hello Sandy! Thank You so much 🙂
Sandy: Could you tell us about your background?
Myra: I belong to a non-filmy family from Haryana.
Sandy: When did you start modelling and acting and what made you pursue them?
Myra: I always wanted to become an actress and I am very lucky to get such a big break at this young age.
Sandy: What all works have you done prior to “Officer”?
Myra: This is my start! Picture abhi baki hai mere dost 🙂
Sandy: How did “Officer” happen to you?
Myra: I gave an audition and they liked my work amongst others. Competition was tough but I finally bagged the role. “Officer” is like a surprise gift to me from RGV and Nagarjuna.
Sandy: Debuting under Ram Gopal Varma’s direction and that too opposite Nagarjuna isn’t an easy thing to achieve for a newcomer. Your take on it?
Myra: Yes! It isn’t easy to achieve but as I said, I am the lucky one. My hard work paid well. God is Great! If you work with sincerity, you will achieve things that you vouch for!
I have the looks and fitness, so I totally blame it on me (Wink). It was just WOW working with the two of them.
Sandy: Can you describe the experience of working with Ram Gopal Varma and a few things about him which public doesn’t know much about?
Myra: We all may think that RGV is serious but while shooting we get to see his funny side. Initially I was a little scared of him on the sets but as days passed by, it felt like family. Specially for a newcomer like me, he was very helpful and friendly in nature.
He helped me in every scene and made me feel like it wasn’t my first film at all. He is the best director. He uses different camera angles and the best techniques. There is a scene in the movie wherein a very small camera was used which panned out near my shoes. 🙂
The worst thing which happened on the sets was when he fell sick. He worked very hard, day and night for this film. I would want to work with him again.
Sandy: How was it sharing screen space with actor Akkineni Nagarjuna? Could you share some memorable moments during the shoot?
Myra: Nagarjuna is the most loving co-actor and I wish to work with him again and again and again (smiles). I learnt many good things from him. The way he treats his fans and his friendly nature with everyone on the sets is commendable. He shows no tantrums at all and is very down to earth.
In fact, he helped me in my Telugu lines while shooting. He admired my confidence and gave me good compliments for my work. You know what! He went to my mom and introduced himself to her. That moment I was like, Awwww!!! 🙂 I can speak about him on and on!
