Urvashi Rautela is one among the very few actors across the country who has resumed her work amid the coronavirus pandemic. Rautela is currently in Hyderabad shooting for her debut Telugu film titled Black Rose. The actress admitted that the current time is very difficult but work must go on no matter what.
Speaking about the Sampath Nandi directorial Urvashi Rautela said, “We are following all precautionary measures amid the COVID pandemic. It's 'lights, camera, mask on and action'. We are following all-new norms for 'Black Rose'. It is a difficult time but work has to go on.”
“My character is like Shylock in William Shakespeare's play 'The Merchant Of Venice'. 'Black Rose' deals with the point from (the perspective of) Kautilya's 'Arthashastra'. She is the owner of a large group of companies called Lotus Capitals,” she added.
Urvashi Rautela said that despite the pandemic she is enjoying the fact that she is finally back on a film set.
“This is one of the first films to start shooting in the time of COVID pandemic along with Akshay Kumar sir's 'BellBottom'," noted the actress, who has in the past worked in the Kannada film, "Mr Airvata".
On the work front, Urvashi Rautela was last seen in the adult film Virgin Bhanupriya. The show also starred Gautam Gulati, Archana Puran Singh, and Delnaaz Irani among others in various pivotal roles.
Speaking about her role in Black Rose she said, “Black Rose is a bilingual film, which will be shot in Telugu and Hindi. It’s my Telugu debut. I must say that our director Sampath Nandi is one of the most acclaimed filmmakers. He wrote the entire script keeping in me in mind. When he offered me the film, I was really excited and beyond thrilled. I read it one go and truly loved the screenplay. I would say language has never been a barrier for me. The role I play in Black Rose is based on a character named Shylock from William Shakespeare's play The Merchant of Venice. Black Rose also deals with a point from Kautilya's Arthashastra. It’s a perfect debut for me to showcase my acting abilities.”
