Firstly, wishing you luck on your upcoming film Saaho, how much excited are you for this film? 

Thank you, I am very much excited about Saaho. We are getting love from South, North, whole of India and world. I am playing the role of Jennifer and it is my first action movie. I will be seen in an action avatar and my character has been shown as a mature and a tough character in the film. All thanks to my director Sujeeth who helped me come out with flying colours. I am thankful to all my co-actors for being very supportive throughout the shoot.

We have seen Evelyn Sharma choosing comedy and rom-com films. What made you choose an action thriller?

I have always chosen comedy films as it's my favourite genre. But I consider and read all scripts but have always chosen comedy films. But for Saaho, I wanted to try a new genre and look forward to the new challenge of action-spy thriller role. I love being part of multi-starrer films. The storyline is very interesting and it has its own twist and turns. I am sure the audience will like the movie this weekend.

How was it working with multi-stars and especially Prabhas? 

Shooting with Prabhas was great. He is very down to earth and humble person. An absolute gentleman and fun-loving person too. I have been a big fan of Baahubali and working with him was such a big honour. I hope we meet again in future for more such projects.

I have spent most of the time with Neil. He helped me get into the character. Most of the actors were called to finish their part of the film at different point of time. Shraddha and my role are very different so we hardly got any time to spend on the sets.

Also, we are yet to see the whole movie and I feel it will come out beautifully. It is difficult to get all the actors at one shooting location due to the nature of this mega project. But I spent time with Mandira Bedi, Neil, Shraddha and Prabhas.

You have dubbed your dialogues in Telugu. How difficult was it to deliver your dialogues in the film?

I have dubbed in Telugu. After my previous films, my fans loved my accent and voice. So I have always maintained that. I had to learn Telugu while dubbing. It was a similar experience when I started doing Hindi films, a new language like Telugu it had to be learned from scratch.

Apart from films, you have been very vocal about social issues. There is a sudden rise in the movement to save water and the environment. Your take on it.

I have just turned vegan. I realized that so much water is being used on the planet for meat and dairy production. Huge amount of water is being used in the meat and dairy industry. So I decided to cut on meat and dairy products to save water. I have tried it for the benefit of this planet.
