Actress Bhavana quotes
“It’s not that I’m not open to doing films more often, but there’s a dearth of fresh and interesting scripts. Also, the right kind of people don’t approach me. So it’s very rarely that I get to work with sensible people. But let me add that I have no problem doing run-of-the-mill stories or the lovergirl kind of roles. It’s just that the basic approach of filmmakers has to change for the better.”
