Telugu actress Lakshmi Manchu launched her own YouTube channel earlier this month. The actress feels this is the best time to make the most of the digital world.

The ‘Pitta Kathalu’ actress was always asked to start this venture but she waited for the right time to launch it.

“I have been asked to start a YouTube channel for years now. I didn’t see what more value I can bring to it earlier but now looking at the world turning more digital, I thought this was a great medium to start creating work. I am really excited for a new journey,” Lakshmi tells IANS.

Asked what will be the focus of content on the channel, and Lakshmi answers in jest: “The prime focus is obviously going to be me!”

She goes on to explain: “I am going to curate a few series on different things we can talk about and I am open for suggestions too.”

Lakshmi also hosts a cookery show for a digital platform where she invites celebrity guests and gets them cooking.

The actress has been focusing on creating quirky content digitally.

She has a reason for it.

“Now more than ever, more people are on their phones rather than on television and I think this is the medium which has slowly become their main source of entertainment. So, Lakshmi Manchu is there, everywhere. You can’t deny me!” she says.

Telugu actress Lakshmi Manchu is enjoying every moment of hosting the Telugu cookery show ‘Aha Bhojanambu’. A foodie herself, she says there have been days when she has just gone out of her way to taste a delicacy.

“I love food and don’t have any favourites. I love Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Italian. I like my big meals. I love travelling for food. I have sometimes just travelled for food and come back. So, the foodie in me just loves different flavours, tastes and method. Though I am still getting accustomed to the French cuisine,” Lakshmi tells IANS.

The eight-part series comes with an interesting twist. Lakshmi invites a celebrity guest, who has to cook with whatever ingredients are provided to them on the show.

Talking about hosting a cookery show, Lakshmi says: “My daughter (Nirvana) and I are big fans of cooking shows. I love watching ‘Australian Top Chef’ and other cooking shows. Being able to host a show with a twist to our regular foods is very exciting. To be able to do it with my peers is even more fun,” she says.

The series is currently streaming on a Telugu OTT platform.

Lakshmi Manchu starts four-part series on dealing with kids during Covid

0

Actress Lakshmi Manchu has started a four-part series titled “Unlocking Positive Childhood Experience”. The series aims at providing solution to parents on how to deal with children affected by the pandemic.

The series brings forth cases about mothers and children who have battled the virus. An episode will throw light on discussions with children around the subject, with the help of a therapist.

“There is a lot of information that is floating around but very little catering specifically to kids. As a mother, I had a lot of questions and concerns and I thought we should curate something during this pandemic to enlighten parents on how to take care of their kids on how to take care of their children if they after effected by Covid-19 in any way,” Lakshmi told IANS.

The Telugu actress eventually narrowed down on four topics, which according to her will have a strong relatability quotient.

“It was very difficult to narrow down on how many episodes.narro but then I was thinking about what are the most commonly asked questions. ‘What if we get covid?’ Then we have mothers and kids who are covid survivors. There is a nutritionist from Hong Kong who will specifically cater to babies and toddlers, besides a therapist to understand what grieving is and how to talk to children and what are the words to use. Then I thought it would be fun to have some yoga where mothers can partner with their children,” she said.

Lakshmi, who has her own YouTube channel, added: “My takeaway from this is that one needs to have patience and to know that our children are more resilient than we think they are. We should not rub our fears on to them.”

Lakshmi Manchu: Drew from real people to create my role in ‘Pitta Kathalu’

0

Actress Lakshmi Manchu, who will be seen in the Telugu OTT series Pitta Kathalu, says she has brought alive her character of Swaroopakka drawing from a mix of people she has seen in life.

Swaroopakka is a narcissistic politician, and Lakshmi says that it wasn’t easy for her to bring alive the part.

“This was really tough. I don’t relate even one bit to what I did in this character. But then if the ability is in me, I have to bring it out. I had quite a few people I could channel, and I’m sure my friends who see me in this character will immediately identify in at least one or two instances who I was channelling,” Lakshmi tells IANS.

Lakshmi, who primarily works in Telugu films, has also worked in films and on TV in Tamil, Hindi and English languages, including an appearance in the popular American show, Desperate Housewives.

“As an actor you are always looking at characters that push you and challenge you, and find places that make you uncomfortable because what I believe is art is something that should make you feel uncomfortable, it should make you ask questions. So you push the boundaries, you cannot have art and create art through other people’s morality, it has to come from a place of truth,” she says.

“I’ve had the good fortune of seeing some amazing incredible people who are in the service of the people and the public, who are politicians, who are selfless and their whole game and goal was to really give back to the nation and to the people around them,” she adds.

Lakshmi Manchu: Interesting time awaits cinema post pandemic

Lakshmi Manchu feels if the novel coronavirus is here to stay, so is the thriving culture of cinema. The Telugu actress says the ongoing pandemic will bring a lot of logistical changes, and it will be interesting to witness the evolution of showbiz post pandemic.

“It is definitely going to be an interesting time for cinema going forward,” Lakshmi told IANS when asked about the future of cinema post Covid-19.

“Lots of logistical changes will need to be made but we all know cinema cannot leave people’s lives. The virus is here to stay. We need to adapt and change our lifestyle and how we perceive things going further. No more crafts services for a while,” she added.

Coronavirus pandemic has led to massive slowdown of the economies, bringing the entertainment industry worldwide to a standstill. There’s no clarity about when normalcy will set in, or if the world will have to embrace the new reality of social distancing and virtual hangout sessions.

But Lakshmi isn’t anxious about the uncertainty.

“Actually for the first time I’m not anxious. Now you know nothing is in your control. It has truly taught me to be in the moment in many ways. We all have to learn a new way of life and how fabulous is that. How many of us will get this opportunity. What we are going through is pretty wild,” she said.

The daughter of veteran actor Mohan Babu is spending her lockdown with her family.

“This is the first time since college to have spent so much time with them,” she said, who mentions that staying with parents “feels like a resort”.

“Family is someone you don’t choose to like but have to love. Over the years of bickering.. you know what I mean..But I realise I have a beautiful loving caring family. A family that lives by morals and ethics. It is so nice to see how we perceive life and how close we really are,” added the actress.

Amid the lockdown, the actress has come out with “Locked Up With Lakshmi Manchu”. In the show, she interacts with people from different walks of life, including film and political personalities, live on her Instagram.

Talking about the series, she said: “I was generally having a conversation with a friend of mine who suggested I should do lives with people I know around the world. One thing led to another and this whole series came together. I couldn’t be happier that I could entertain my fans and myself through this quarantine. I am so glad that I could reach out to so many people around the world and connect with what’s going on right now.”
