Heroine Sangeetha, after Khadgam, became quite busy with projects getting lined up.
Though she acted in few movies before Khadgam, it's
Khadgam that got her the name. She acted as a village girl who dreams of the colorful film industry and becomes victim
to shady aspects of the film industry. Following Khadgam she acted with RaviTeja in Ee Abbayi Chala Manchodu and
with Srikanth in Pellam Vurelthe.
We got a chance to ask her few questions. The following are the excerpts.
You have acted in Telugu movies with three different names. What is your real name?
When I entered Telugu Films, there is already a senior artist by name Sangeetha. So my name has been changed. However,
I went with my real name in Khadgam and now I dont think it's a good idea to change it. Is it?
