Watching a rain song sequence in movie is really fun but shooting for it is not so fun, says Sharmila. She got very drenched while shooting and things got worse since she is allergic to rain. But Ramesh Aravind, the director of the film was very understanding and gave her time to dry off before each shot. Ramesh too is full of praise for Sharmila for co-operating wonderfully especially in the rain sequences which he says can be painful for the actresses to do.
Sharmila debuted in Kannada with Sajini and has acted in several film like E Bandhana, Krishna, Navagraha and Shivamani.
Sharmila Mandre had to face critics for looking plump in the recent film Shivamani. But she is making a stunning come back through a sensuous song in her upcoming film Venkata in Sankata. In the film, Sharmila is featured in a wet sari sequence but actress vows that the song will not term her as sexy. She says that the song is picturised so aesthetically that no one will ever think of it as sexy or vulgar.
