Learn different languages, suggests actress Sharmila Mandre

Chennai, Mar 2 (IANS) As most actresses are doing films in multiple languages, southern actress Sharmila Mandre feels efforts should be taken to learn different languages as it helps in getting the right expressions.

"As long as I was doing Kannada films, I found it extremely easy to express because I knew the language in and out. However, when I started doing films in other languages, I found it extremely difficult to express even with a dubbing artist," Sharmila told IANS.

"It is mainly because I find it uncomfortable to lip-sync to the voice of someone else. If I know the language, I can either dub in my own voice or at least ensure that I don't appear artificial while giving lip-sync to some other voice," added the actress, who is currently shooting for her upcoming Telugu romantic-comedy "Kevvu Keka".

It features Allari Naresh in the lead, and is directed by Devi Prasad.

"It's an out-and-out comedy entertainer for masses. We're done with 80 percent of the shooting in places such as Bangkok and Pollachi. The last schedule of its shooting will start in Hyderabad from next week," she added.

Are you dubbing in your own voice for this film?

"No, but I've managed to learn few words in Telugu. As soon as I complete this film, I will take classes to learn the language. I want to make sure I learn to speak at least few lines fluently before I sign my next film," said Sharmila.

Having entered films while in college, she feels juggling both was extremely challenging.

"My parents were adamant that I complete my education. Even though it was very difficult, I managed to finish the course. But my scores used to fluctuate between films. In a way, it's good that I'm done with my education, I don't have any regrets now," said Mandre, who holds a degree in business management from Bangalore.

She considers film school grooming very essential for any aspiring actor.

"I enrolled for a six months acting workshop in London before I started doing films. I feel film school grooming is important because it helps an actor to come out of his or her comfort zone and express naturally," she said.

Sharmila is currently in discussion for a Telugu film.
