Shreya Bhattacharya

ex: Hello Kajal, how do you brief Indian cinema towards you - harsh and mean or sweet and supportive?

I am extremely grateful and overwhelmed by the love and acceptance I have received in South Indian cinema. Bollywood felt comfortable from day 1 considering Hindi is my language. I've always wanted to do meaningful cinema in any language and I've been selective about my scripts, keeping a balance of Hindi, Telugu and Tamil films. In totality, Indian cinema is in a great space and I'm very happy to be a part of it.

ex: Do you think you were destined for movies? Or was it always a planned career for you?

Destiny, yes, contributes a lot towards making me what I am today. After having graduated in bachelors of mass media, i suddenly got an offer to act in a film. I was a little hesitant in the beginning since it wasn't the planned choice of career. I thought I'd do one film and then pursue my MBA. After the first film, there was no looking back. I couldn't have been happier and this reinforced my belief in destiny.

ex: What do you believe has been the turning point in your career?

There have been different turning points in terms of stardom and recognition in all the three languages I work in. Telugu- my film Magadheera turned out to be a classic. In Tamil - Thuppaki shot me to instant relatable value making me a household name and in Hindi it was Singham that got me recognition. And I am sure I am looking forward for more such turning points in my life.

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!
