Why did you okay this film?
Director Vijay Kumar Kalivarapu walked me through the script. I was reading the starting pages of the script, and I kept turning pages till the end and Jayamma's character was prominent throughout.

Was it challenging to learn the slang for Jayamma Panchayathi?

It is really hard and I was very stressed out while doing the film. I picked up Srikakulam lingo. I used to rehearse my lines during the night. After practicing them, I used to send it to director Vijay Kumar Kalivarapu. But, he was never satisfied with my work. I was literally waiting for his compliment, but he never said I did good, she laughs.

You must have lost out on youre regular income from film events due to Jayamma Panchayathi?
Yes it is 200 percent right. But I felt like doing this film as it talks about caste issues and delivers a social message to the audience.

What are next your projects?
Currently, I'm looking into two scripts but I haven't decided whether I'm doing it or not. Whatever films I will sign henceforth will be lead roles only. I am done with supporting characters.

When are you launching your son?
Currently, I and Rajiv will not involve in any of my son's decisions. We will soon be launching him in movies later this year. We want Roshan to be a strong and Independent person, which is why we are not involved in his decision to enter movies.
