How does Ritu Varma overcome the language barrier considering she has done South Indian cinema since the start of her filmy career? Well, she has worked hard to gain a command over the vernacular languages. She said in an interview recently that “I didn’t really have to learn Telugu much but I prepared thoroughly for my scenes. Dubbing seems artificial, at least for me. I believe that you can’t recreate the same emotion of a scene that you’ve shot sometime ago in a dubbing studio. That way shooting in sync sound was a big advantage. I think I’ve become a more confident actor now. Also, I feel I have a better command over Telugu now”. That’s an achievement itself. What say?
The young lass Ritu Varma revealed her crystal clear fashion fundas to a leading daily when she said “Style is unique. I think it should reflect your personality. On a regular basis I love wearing comfortable casual clothes like jeans and a simple t-shirt but at the same time, I love dressing up for occasions. What I wear basically depends on my mood.” Point taken! BTW, Ritu is not a brand-conscious lady. She picks up anything that she likes. She does have few of her fav brands but she likes to shop for street wear as well.
