In a statement to the media, Preetika Rao reminisces on her first brush with a helicopter. Remembering that she had to give an interview while on board a chopper, Preetika Rao says that it was a memorable as well as a scary experience.
According to the actress’ statements, she was on board a helicopter with costars of her debut venture ‘Chikku Bukku’, Arya and Shriya and also director Manigandan. It was not a fun ride though. The actors and their director were to give an interview sitting on the chopper! And it was especially scary for the actress because it was the first time that she set foot inside a helicopter. Preetika remembers how she could not help looking out of the window, though the tiny figures that met her eyes below made her stiff with fear! The actress describes her costar Shriya as very brave as she was the only person inside the helicopter who had the guts to crack jokes and keep the mood of all those assembled light.
Preetika Rao, who is Bollywood actress Amrita Rao’s sister has achieved critical acclamation for her role of a village belle in her debut Tamil film ‘Chikku Bukku’.
