Shanvi Srivastav might have been born and brought up in Varanasi, but she is quite popular in southern films. She has recently completed shooting for her second Telugu project Adda, which features opposite actor Sushant. The actress says that she yearns to play rural characters that are contrary to her real personality.
In an interview to IANS, Shanvi Srivastav said, "I need to be open to different roles. While I've played city-bred characters in my first two films, I really look forward to play a rural south Indian girl in the future. I want to play roles that are contrary to my personality and ethnicity."
The actress added, "I still remember when Sushant, my co-star, asked me how will I manage if I were to play a typical rural south Indian girl? I told him that deep within me lies a cute south Indian girl, who is always ready to drape a half-sari and pose two 'chotis', if needed."
Shanvi is playing a fashion designing student in the movie Adda and she loves her character. She said, "I'm expected to be always stylish and classy." She has recently completed her graduation and now she is ready to accept more projects. She said, "Even though I got offers while working for Adda, I couldn't take them up because I had to take a break for exams. Now that I have completed my B. Com exams, I will go back to Hyderabad and take up projects."
She aspires to diversify to other industries, but said, "I want to do films in other languages as well, but for the time being I want to concentrate on Telugu. I want to do some good films here before I plan to diversify. However, if I manage to get a really exciting project in other language, then I might take it up."
