Shika had captured the hearts of many by her cuteness in the film Kola Kolaya Mundhrika. Recently while speaking to the media, she said,” I am a native of Bangalore. My father is working in a private company. My mother is house wife. I have a brother. I have studied B Com.
I know western dance and Bharathanatiyam. I am the first person who has come to act. Because of this I did not get proper support from my family. Now since lots of people are appreciating me, my family has got some confidence on me. My real name is Bhavana and I have changed my name as Shika because there is already another Bhavana.
Shika means big. With regard to how I got the opportunity in Kola Kolaya Mundhrika is during my college days I use to draw a lot. Because of this I got the opportunity to act in a Kannada film. That is my first film. I had come for a marriage function in Chennai. Madhumitha madam, who saw me, phoned and asked me whether I am willing to act and asked me to come to the photo shoot.
So I met her and after a week’s time she told me that I am selected. My joy was boundless at that moment. I am very happy that I got the opportunity to act in a Tamil film. The reason for this is because the other language actresses are also interested to work in Tamil films. Tamil cinema is much spoken about throughout the world.
Since I did not know Tamil, I learnt Tamil for two weeks. After this I came to Chennai. Before the shooting commenced Madhumitha madam gave me lot of coaching for a week’s time. I am also proud that my first Tamil film was directed by a woman director. I am getting lots of offer after my first Tamil film. I will announce this after everything is finalized.”
