All eyes are on heroine Haripriya as her debut film Manasugala Maathu Madhura has hit the theatres. She managed to get two film offers even before the release of her debut film. Her film Vasantha Kaala is all set to hit the theatres and her other film Mukhyamantri I Love You with Vijay is under production.
Haripriya said that all the three films are completely different from each other. She is expecting a lot from Mukhyamantri I Love you, as she plays bureaucratic role in the film. She said that she accepted the film just because of Ravi.
The actress is just s film old but she has turned down many offers. "I have rejected at least 15-20 offers just because of poor scripts. I want to act in performance-oriented films. I just don't want to do touch and go type of roles. That's why I have been very choosy in selecting films. I am giving more prominence to story, screenplay, director and the banner. I want to earn a good name in the industry. I just don't want to do each and every role that come my way", said Haripriya.
Apart from the popularity she is gaining, Haripriya has also carved a niche for herself among the gossip-mongers. Though her second and third film were sailing smoothly, her debut film Manasugala Maathu Madhura was not all easy for her. There were rumours that Haripriya is having affair with her co-star Anand. Just before she came back from the shock, director Manju Maskalmatti accused her for not being punctual on sets and not behaving properly. Haripriya rubbishes all these allegations.
'I have nothing to do with Anand. He is just a good friend of mine. MMM was a debut film for both of us. We had been good friends during the time of shooting. And there is nothing beyond that. But I read somewhere that we both are having an affair. It was really shocking. I can't do something like that. Just before I came out of the situation, the director accused me for not behaving properly. There was a slight misunderstanding which we have solved it out. I have decided to be very careful in the future. I just don't want to spoil my name in these rumours. I have come to the industry to carve a good name for myself and I am concentrating only on that", said Haripriya.
Haripriya doesn't want to concentrate on her competitors but says that she wants to be the Aishwarya Rai of Kannada film industry.
