Bujji is the journey of a vulnerable girl to a strong woman

Bujji is the journey of a vulnerable girl to a strong woman

Vishwak Sen, known for his versatility and dedicated performances, is steadily gaining more recognition.

His upcoming project, Gangs of Godavari, promises to be an intense gangster drama. Scheduled for release on May 31, the film is written and directed by Krishna Chaitanya.

Alongside Vishwak Sen, actresses Anjali and Neha Sshetty will portray the female leads, adding to the anticipation.

Adding to the buzz is the involvement of music composer Yuvan Shankar Raj, making the movie even more appealing to audiences.

One of the leading ladies of the movie, Neha Sshetty, interacted with the media about the movie today.

Excerpts from the interview:

On her role:

"I play Bujji in Gangs of Godavari. She is a beautiful, elegant, and vulnerable girl from a rich family in a village. The specialty of Bujji is that she is a very strong woman. So far, the trailer and songs have shown her as a quiet and vulnerable girl, but the surprise factor is that Bujji will be seen as very strong. In general, women in villages are very vulnerable, but Bujji's journey shows how she becomes strong."

On the film's backdrop:

"This is a very different kind of script, set against a 1990s backdrop. It's a life story between Rathnakar and Bujji. Our director showed me references to senior actress Sobhana Garu—be it the kajal, saree draping, or hairstyle, our director wanted it that way. In fact, my hair color for the past year has been consistent because we were very particular about Bujji. Even for looks, we did a lot of homework."

On her character:

"In the 1990s, acting wasn’t outgoing. It was inward and quiet, yet strong. Everything was conveyed through expressions, showing vulnerability and strength. That’s the specialty of Bujji. I have played modern and outgoing characters, but this is different. Moreover, since I come from a rich family in the movie, my slang does not have the same Godavari accent as Rathnakar (Vishwak Sen)."

On working with Vishwak Sen:

"Working with Vishwak was very good. We had known each other before the film, and doing romantic scenes with him was very comfortable. Our combination scenes came out very well."

On director Krishna Chaitanya:

"Krishna Chaitanya is a great human being and a man of few words. Watching the way he has written and directed this film, you won't believe he is a man of few words. There is so much more to him than this film, and it was great working with him. Our director is also from the Godavari side. The situations in the movie are based on his experiences. Many people think that this film has a lot of violence, but I would like to clarify that it balances many genres, including romance, thriller, comedy, action, and a lot of emotion. The audience will be thoroughly entertained."

On working with Anjali:

"Both Anjali and I were involved until the end of the film. There was healthy competition between us. We had some combination scenes, and they turned out great. In real life, Anjali is very bubbly and interacts with everyone on set. As soon as the director says action, she becomes quiet and completely gets into the acting zone. She is a senior actress and great at her work."

On the filming experience:

"We shot from summer to summer for exactly one year. The heat in Rajahmundry was terrible. I even heard that people on set were fainting because of the extreme heat. We also had moments where we felt like nature was on our side. During one of the romantic scenes on the bridge between the hero and heroine, there was a sudden drizzle that set the mood perfectly."

On working with Sithara Entertainments:

"For me, Sithara Entertainments is home. I am looking forward to doing more work with them. I am glad that we have made good films that worked well, and I think our relationship has been very good with quality films."

Vishwak Sen's Gangs of Godavari promises to deliver an exciting and emotionally charged experience, with a strong cast and crew bringing this unique story to life.
