The Telugu TV show Attarintlo Akka Chellelu is a gripping tale of twin sisters — Shravani and Dharani. One would normally expect twins to be alike. But this set of identical twins share nothing in common except for their looks. Actor Chaitra Rai, who plays both Shravani and Dharani, wonderfully makes us forget that it is one person playing two roles. The complete contrast in these characters are extremely relatable. You either know someone like them or you are one of them.
We list down what makes these twins so special yet so relatable. Who do you think you relate more to?
Shravani is a lawyer by profession. By now, she is used to handling big and bad clients with equal ease. She has always had big dreams and knows how to achieve them. Be it buying a helicopter toy worth Rs 200 as a school girl or managing the funds for her education, ambitions and aims are first priority for Shravani. Belonging to a poor family has never stopped Shravani from thinking big. In the end, she always ends up as a winner.
Dharani is a graduate. Yet she happily works as a tailor and has a little sewing machine stationed right outside her house, in the foyer. She loves to see people happy and so makes sure her work is perfect. In fact, even the local minister’s family approaches Dharani to get their desired dresses stitched. Dharani doesn’t consider her work to be big or small, she counts everything as big achievements.
Shravani is a smooth-talker who can manipulate anyone into doing whatever she wants. She makes people do things that she wants them to do but people think that it’s what they want to do. Shravani, most times, is cold-hearted and speaks harshly to everyone around her. She believes that nobody can possibly compete with her and is the best of all.
Dharani is the girl who brings a genuine smile on the faces of people around her. She wants the best for everyone and goes beyond bounds to ensure her people remain happy. She is selfless, caring and the girl most people want to be like.
Who are you? The dream-like Dharani? Or the practical, boss lady Shravani?
