After the mega-success of Anish Kuruvilla’s Gods Of Dharmapuri, we believed it would be a tough task to have something remotely as amazing. And that’s when Chadarangam came as a sweet surprise. Starring Meka Srikanth in the lead role, the show has an amazing crew and cast that bring together the best of Tollywood. This nine-episode series marks the comeback and digital debut of Srikanth, while it also introduced us to a few new faces. One of the lot, who stands out, is the 18-year old Ramya Pasupuleti.
She has been a big name amongst teenagers due to her strong social media presence, but this is the first time we are seeing her on a big scale. We reached out to her for a candid conversation and got the multi-tasker to answer our questions. Read the edited excerpts of the interview here.

Q. Please tell us a little bit about your journey as a social media influencer.
A. I never imagined that people would tag me as a social media influencer. Right now, everything is going great. I was clueless when I started, I was only 16 years old. Now, it’s been almost two years. And, so far it’s been so good! I am hoping that I continue to create more and more great content for my followers in the longer run.
A. I had to audition for the role of Paro. And, I believe I nailed it.
Q. How was it working with seasoned and popular actors in Chadarangam?
A. It was quite an amazing experience. And, I got to learn a lot of things.
Q. What kind of preparation did you have to do to play the part of a drug-addict teenager?
A. Yes, I did take tips from them, but it was only observational learning.
Q. What are your views on substance abuse, in general?
A. Yes, I am completely against drug abuse and I do talk about it every now and then on my social media accounts.
Q. In an earlier interview, you spoke about your ambition to be a doctor. Do you still have the same dream or have you found a place in the show business?
