Srishti's passion for acting convinced parents

Becoming an actor was once a "far-fetched dream" for Srishti Jain, who is currently playing the lead role in the show Hamari Wali Good News.

"I was always fascinated with acting and really wanted to become an actor, but at the same time it always felt like a far-fetched dream," she said.

"Because I belong to a family of engineers and doctors, my family was always sceptical of the industry.

"When my father got a job in Mumbai, I felt like destiny has brought me closer to my dream. That's when I built up the courage to talk to my parents.

"I won't lie, it took some time, but eventually they agreed. I guess they realised how passionate I was about acting."

Harish and Priya's romcom titled Oh Manapenne

Harish Kalyan and Priya Bhavani Shankar's upcoming Tamil film has been titled Oh Manapenne.

The remake of the Telugu film Pelli Choopulu is directed by debutant Kaarthikk Sundar.

"Pelli Choopulu means matchmaking in Telugu. We wanted to have a title that refers to weddings/matchmaking," said Kaarthikk.

"The names that we had zeroed in on were either too old or not interesting enough. I happened to listen to (the song) Omana Penne from (the 2010 Tamil film) Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa and just played with that term for our film's title.

"Manapenn refers to a bride in Tamil. So, this worked perfectly."
