Rao is the newest face on TV, and actor Amrita Raoa��s sister to boot. A film journalista��who wrote columns for Asian Age and Mumbai Mirrora��she turned actor with Tamil and Telugu movies. Shea��s now made her TV debut with the new serial on Colors, ‘Beintehaa’.

How did the transition from journalism to acting happen?
I started off as a model. After working with over 45 brandsa��including a chocolate commercial with Amitabh Bachchana��I switched to film journalism. Acting happened when director K Manigandan spotted my picture in a column and offered me a role with actor Arya. However, acting is a small part of my life. I hope to become aA�writer someday.

Why did you move to TV?
After I took a break from South Indian filmsa��to doA� a course in broadcast journalisma��IA� came back to Mumbai. I met with some prominent production houses and accepted Beintehaa because the story and concept appealed to me.

Tell us a little about your character.
Alia is a tomboy. I do not relate to her much.

Being Amrita Raoa��s sister, do people draw comparisons?
It is very human to compare two siblings. Amrita has been a big source of inspiration to me and I discuss my work with her.

Beintehaa premiered on Colors on December 30. It airs, Mondays through Fridays, at 9 pm.
