Anya Singh, the female lead of 'Ninu Veedani Needanu Nene', is upbeat about the response to the multi-genre thriller.  In this interview, the youngster talks about doing the film, working with Sundeep Kishan and director Caarthick Raju, the post-release reception, her future projects and more.  

Tell us about your background.?

I am from Delhi and I was to a boarding school in Ajmer.  While I was in college, I worked with a wedding planner.  And then I moved to Mumbai.  I have studied graduation in Sociology and Political Science.  I wanted to do Psychology, as it's my favourite.  I couldn't study that because it was in a particularly strict University.  After studying in boarding school, I didn't want to be in such a University again.  

The film released on Friday. How has the going been since?

The response has been great.  I, like the others associated with the film, was too tensed on the day of release.  By the evening of Day 1, the film started to get tremendous response from everywhere.  The success of this film is special to me because it has happened in an unknown territory.  I am not from this place and it will take time to just be accepted.  Now that 'NVNN' has picked up at the box-office, they are thronging to the theatres in large numbers.  Theatres are running to packed houses.  

How did this film happen to you?  We heard that you had been going through a depressed face in life before 'NVNN' happened.  What is the reason?

I was roped in because director Caarthick Raju and Sundeep Kishan liked my performance in my debut Hindi film.  After I became an actor, I lost my father to cancer.  I was shocked and devastated.  I had to face it, absorb it and be back to normal.

How was it working with Sundeep Kishan and Caarthick Raju?

Sundeep and Caarthick sir made me feel comfortable.  I was put in an environment I had never been into.  The actor-director duo is passionate, talented and committed.  The way Sundeep conducts himself with people is quite pleasing.  And as a producer, too, he is equally good.

What about your upcoming movies?  Are you open to doing films in different languages?

I have been approached by some producers.  Nothing has been finalized as yet, so let me not talk about them.  I will be doing a Tamil film.  I have a three-film contact with a production company.  I am open to all languages.  With Amazon, Netflix, etc, Telugu films, for example, are being watched everywhere in India.  Everything is so accessible nowadays.  Subtitles help a great deal.  Half the Hindi-language channels on TATA Sky telecast dubbed south Indian movies.
