THE Sensational

YOUR UPCOMING FLICK PITTA KATHALU IS ABOUT A DYSTOPIAN TECH SOCIETY PLUNGED INTO CHAOS! DO YOU THINK SUCH A DARK FUTURE AWAITS US AS WELL?

We are already a tech society. How distorted that gets depends on our ability to use technology wisely as a tool of communication and connection with others. Technology is a driving force in our everyday lives and it needs to remain a positive one rather than replace real human connection and warmth.

The narrative the director has put across in Pitta Kathalu is not an unbelievable scenario - it is possible but it’s also avoidable.

WHAT WAS THE MOST FUN PART ABOUT PLAYING A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS IN A TECHNOCRATIC WORLD?

There’s no fun in playing a damsel in distress EVER so let’s get that out of the way first lol. I enjoy playing the role of various women and telling their stories through cinema- it’s not about me connecting to them as personalities or traits I relate to it’s about me connecting to the feeling of wanting to say that story.

The funny thing is even in a technocratic world basic human emotions never change but it made it more exciting to go through an emotional landscape in an almost cold world taken over by technology

YOU RECENTLY BOUGHT A PS5, HOW DID YOU MANAGE TO SECURE ONE WITH SUCH AN INSANE DEMAND WORLDWIDE?

Hahahaha thanks to my mates at games the shop for hooking me up with an early pre-order for the console!

WHAT GAMES ARE YOU CURRENTLY PLAYING ON YOUR PS5 AND WHICH ONES ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THE MOST?

IN-GAME VEHICLES WE WISH WERE REAL

Videogames never fail to transport us to a world that is far beyond our reach, yet controllable by the tips of our fingers (quite literally). While open-world games offer a vast, new lifestyle to explore, they also give us a taste of some unique vehicles. Well, calling them vehicles would be an understatement as these perform so many more tasks than just commute, but they’re some uber-cool pieces of machinery nevertheless. That said, here are some of the coolest in-game vehicles that we would love to test-ride!
