How did the '2 States' journey start for you?While shooting for 'Student of the Year', '2 States' was offered to me. I had already read the book by that time and was wishing if it could be adapted into a movie. I was aware that Arjun Kapoor was already on board, so we did a look test to check if our pairing looks good together. After a waiting period of few months, I was informed that I finally bagged the lead role.
Tell us about your character, Ananya?Ananya Subramaniam is a young, attractive Tamil girl who can get attention effortlessly. She is smart, funny and witty. I never gave too much thought about how to play Ananya because if you try to do something under pressure, that makes it more difficult. I had to read the book 3 times and know the character thoroughly, so it didn't require much effort. I trusted my director Abhishek's vision which has helped me portray Ananya perfectly.
Is he possessive about you?Yes, very much! When Karan asked him if he is okay about my dating someone, he straight away answered 'No'. He clearly told us that none of you girls are getting married and going away. He is blunt and honest and genuinely doesn't want us to get married, that's how possessive he is.
How was it working with Revathy?
I shared a warm vibe with her. I saw her in 'Love', 'Raat' and 'Phir Milenge'. Just being with her on the sets has taught me a lot as an actress.
Throughout my life, I have been a very sensitive person. I used to avoid any competition just for the fear of failure. But after joining the industry, I have become more thick skinned. Now I can take criticism positively.
What are the qualities you look for in your
He should have a great sense of humor, he should be ok with me being an actor, should be honest and loyal. I am a simple romantic girl at heart, who wants a simple boy who can keep me happy.
