Priya Banerjee From Canada to Tollywood

News Helpline | January, 01 2012

After actors like Priya Anand and Richa Gangopadhyay making it big here, yet another NRI is all set to make an entry in Tollywood —Priya Banerjee. This Bengali beauty, who was born and brought up in Canada, is making her debut in Kiss, directed by and starring Adivi Sesh.

"I finished my degree in international marketing and computer science recently, but right from my school days, I was drawn to theatre, drama and pageants. So I decided to come to Mumbai in January last year for an acting course. This was my first visit to India and the course really helped me a lot," says Priya, who bagged Kiss only after she returned to Canada.

"A friend on Facebook told me that the makers of a Telugu film are looking for a female lead. Since attending the audition wasn't a feasible option, I recorded a video audition and sent it to them. A week later, I got a call saying I was shortlisted," she shares. Priya then met Adivi Sesh, who narrated the script. "I really liked the story of the rom-com. It's about a girl and her dream.

I later learnt that I was selected for the role after he had auditioned almost 150 girls," she adds.
