Bengaluru: Sandalwood actress Rachita Ram couldn’t control her tears in an interview to Kannada news channel.

The actress is seen in a bold avatar in her latest Kannada movie I Love You. For an actress who is predominantly seen in traditional roles, her fans, admirers and even parents are shocked to see her perform so boldly.

As the controversy grew bigger, the actress chose to apologise to her parents and even wept, saying that they are her be-all and end-all.

It’s not that the actress regrets her role, but to her parents, she is still a “child” and to see her in a daring role was uneasy and uncomfortable.

The actress candidly admits thus: “My mother said I accept you as a heroine, but certainly not as a daughter. Immediately, I sought apologies from both my parents. I also promised them that I would not be doing any such roles in the future.”

Later, the actress couldn’t control her tears. She said, “Even to this day, my father considers me to be a small child. I always say sorry to my father. I can’t control my tears. I can give happiness to them and cause hurt as well. There is no need for them to depend on my earnings. They have taken care of us well. It is wrong to hurt them, and I am not going to hurt them anymore. They felt very bad. For me family is everything. My family is priority. When my father said that I am like a small child to him, I felt very bad. I am very sorry. I don’t show this before him. I generally say that I am like a boy.”
