Working with RGV dream come true for Shanvi

Chennai: Shanvi Srivastav, who will be seen in an important role in Ram Gopal Varma's upcoming Telugu political drama "Reddy Garu Poyaru", says it was her dream to work with the ace filmmaker. "To work with him is a dream come true for any actor, not just for me. He chose me in the very first meeting and I was too nervous to even ask him why. I play a very serious role and all the chirpiness that you find in my characters usually will be absent here," Shanvi said. "On the first day we shot a fight sequence. Since I've only done serious roles, he expected me to at least take a few takes before finalizing the shot. But I gave him the expression he wanted right away and he was impressed. The entire team was surprised because other actors usually take a day or two to perfect a shot," she added.

Shooting with RGV is a different experience altogether, says Shanvi, who has also worked on films such as "Lovely" and "Adda". "He's an innovator and working with him will always be different. He used only three cameras to shoot and most of the time you're not aware of the camera while shooting. It can capture you from the most unexpected angle, and, therefore, it's important to be immersed in one's role," she said. Shanvi plays a brief role, but she says there's so much to learn.
