Tollywood Actress Raasi Khanna, Except ‘Supreme’, she didn’t even taste another hit. Her Bellam Sridevi role in ‘Supreme’ impressed the Telugu audience but it gave a feeling to the filmmakers that she will not suit for intense characters and serious roles. Most of the characters played by Raasi later are silly after her Bellam Sridevi role. Director Venky Atluri offered her an intense role to Raasi in such a situation.
In fact, Venky thought that Raasi would not suit the heroine role in ‘Tholi Prema’ and he even tried for other heroines. Then the producers suggested the name of Raasi Khanna. Venky finalized her only after the test shoot. Considering Raasi image, there were doubts among the audience that whether she will suit the feel-good story like ‘Tholi Prema’ when heroine intro scenes were shown in promos. But she played her role wonderfully and getting appreciation from all quarters.
Some audience even opine that Raasi Khanna’s character is the best character in the film. ‘Tholi Prema’ has completely changed her image and she gave an impression that she can play all types of characters. It seems filmmakers will not offer silly characters to her in future. She may get good roles which bring our her talent.
