Raasi can be termed as a phenomenon. Within three years of graduating as a heroine from a child star, Rasi alias Manthra alias Vijaya has starred in about two dozen movies in Tamil and Telugu. Mostly box office hits. Her strong points - a bewitching smile, a convincing portrayal of any role,be it a college girl or a sentimental middle class wife. Still in her teens, amazingly she is able to carry a tormented wife's role(Snehitulu) or a dejected lover(Gokulamlo Seetha and Vasantha) with ease as she essays a college girl in the under production 'Swapna Lokam' directed by Bhemaneni Srinivasa Rao for producer 'Rasi' Narasimha Rao. Perhaps she is the only heroine on Telugu screen with the maximum number of hits in 1998. Rasi talks to L.N. Malladi on the sets of 'Swapna Lokam' in Visakhpatnam.
