I want to do good cinema in various genres : Karthika

Karthika, who is currently working on Deal, says that acting was not exactly part of her plan, despite being the daughter of Radha, and niece of Ambika, both of whom were stars in their own right.

“I was all set to take up a course in hotel management in Switzerland, when the offer for my first Telugu film came. I was on vacation then, and we thought, ‘Why not try it out?’. Soon after, I signed up for film Ko,” she says.

But, now that films have happened for her, the young actress tells us she will enjoy this phase for as long as it lasts. “I’ve no illusions about being an actress all my life. It is also not my bread and butter. I want to do good cinema in various genres, as I have been doing so far, for as long as I can. But, yes, I have a backup plan in place. That’s not to say that films are not priority. While I am at it, I will give it my all,” says Karthika.

Karthika will soon join the team of Deal. “But before that, there is a mandatory trip to Kerala for Onam. My grandmother celebrates her birthday around that time. And, my dad is very particular that we stay true to our roots and hence we visit our family there often,” she says.
