Regina Cassandra spent time at an organic farm in Adyanadka, a village near Mangaluru, getting to know the nuances of farming. The actor, in an interview with the Times of India, revealed that she got to know about the farm through her friends in Bengaluru and decided to spend a few days there. Recalling the events that led her to try her hand at organic farming, she said, â€śIn 2018, I had a major epiphany about life and what we are doing to our planet. Ever since Iâ€™ve been conscious about my ways and thatâ€™s probably what drew me to spending time amidst nature and trying my hand at agricultural activities.â€ť
During her stay at the farm, Regina harvested radish, gongura and ivy gourd. She also got to know about sustainable farming and chemical-free food apart from trying out activities like flying fox, rope swing and stand-up paddling.
Reginaâ€™s stay at the farm was completed with a visit to the Thannirbhavi beach in Mangaluru, where she did stand-up paddling and was part of the surf life-saving programme.
Reginaâ€™s last film release was Evaru in Telugu. The film was directed by Venkat Ramji with dialogues by Abburi Ravi. The technical crew of this flick included Sricharan Pakala for music composition, Vamsi Patchipulusu for cranking the camera and Garry BH for editing. Regina played the female lead in this flick with Adivi Sesh, Naveen Chandra and Murli Sharma in pivotal roles. Evaru was bankrolled by Pearl V Potluri, Param V Potluri and Kavin Anne under the banner PVP Cinemas.
At present, Regina has three Tamil movies in her kitty â€“ Chakra, Kallapart and Kasada Thapara.
