`In US it’s very difficult to see Kannada movie says Soumya. Last movie I saw in USA was Poorvapara. Whenever she comes to Bangalore unfailingly she watches Kannada and Hindi movies.
Soumya’s father is working as a Banker, Mother is a house wife, and her brother is studying in a college. Unexpectedly this film came to me she disclosed speaking to Chitraloka mega portal. Thanks to Ramprasad for giving me an offer. I would like to do good character role, emotional ones to be precise which can bring best out of me. I am looking for challenging roles but not stereo type roles. I am not for money. Whenever I get time I will come to Bangalore. If I get a chance to act in the film I will do it without expecting any remuneration.
Glamour is a must in this art field. It has to be on your face. It is there in modeling too. But I like to wear more Indian dresses than western she says with a smile. In ‘Ms California’ film I will do my own dubbing provided it suits. Soon after this film in case offers come to me I may settle down here. But everything depends from this film says Soumya.
