My Father Gave Me Three Scripts | Aishwarya Arjun

Coming from a family of actors, directors, and producers, actor Aishwarya Arjun has literally grown up in shooting locations.

When offers came in, she didn’t want to rush into acting but focussed on choosing a good script.

She wanted to make sure that her debut in Kannada is something that she will be remembered for. Aishwarya’s desire to make her debut with a performance-oriented role is becoming a reality with ‘Prema Baraha’, which is slated to release soon.

The project is directed by Arjun Sarja. In an interview with Nina C George, Aishwarya shares her experience of working in ‘Prema Baraha.’

How did ‘Prema Baraha’ happen?

This is my first film in Kannada and I am excited because the kind of role that I am playing is a dream-come-true for any debutante. I must thank my father for reposing faith in me. I play a journalist and my character has different layers to it.The emotions that I had to portray have been very challenging.

How did the team zero in on your co-star Chandan?

This movie has literally called out its characters. We first spotted Chandan on ‘Bigg Boss’ and almost instantly knew that he suited the role perfectly well. My father wanted someone who is vibrant and charismatic. He found those qualities in Chandan.

What do you like best about Chandan?

He has been doing things that he hasn’t attempted before. He doesn’t like dancing but when you see him dance, you would never say that he is not a dancer. Even his fight scenes have been choreographed by my father. Chandan is a fast learner.

Tell us about the songs in this film...

We have five songs and the music is by Jassie Gift. Every song is in tune with the film. The original version of ‘Prema Baraha’ has been recreated with a different tune. There’s another romantic song called ‘Manase’ which is a favourite. There’s yet another Hanuman song which connects with people of all age groups.


What’s unique about your introduction dance?

I have been trained for it by dancers Poonam and Priyanka from Chicago. I had to undergo some rigorous training for it as it is a mix of different styles - from Bharatanatyam to hip-hop.

What connects you to the film?

I’ve seen the script right from its stage of inception. My father gave me three scripts and I chose this one. I was drawn to this script.

How is it to be directed by your father?

It is wonderful to be directed by someone as talented as my father. He brings in nuances and is open to suggestions from newcomers. At first, I was skeptical to work with him but things fell in place when he began treating me as an actor and not as his daughter.
