Actress Hansika Motwani, who had been keeping a low profile lately, has launched her own YouTube channel on Monday, April 6. The Maha star plans on entertaining her fans and followers by letting them take a look into her personal and professional life through videos and various other means. The actress has been excited about the channel for quite a while.

Recently, the actor had launched 270 GIFs (Graphics Interchange Format) under various categories on social media platforms. The actor had reportedly associated with GIPHY, a popular GIF platform, to create the same. She went on to be the first South Indian star to have an exclusive set of GIFs for herself. The GIFs have garnered more than 150 million views in a week.


After the channel was launched, the first video that dropped was the making of the actor’s GIFs at a studio on February 6, with her crew. The actress is seen wearing a pink turtle-neck bodycon, expressing several emotions with a green screen at the backdrop. She tells the viewers about how it isn’t as easy as it looks owing to the speed at which it is shot and also about her obsession with the social media platform, Instagram. At the end of the 3-minute video she thanks her entire team for helping her out.

Produced by Silly Monks Entertainment, the GIFs have been designed by Bhanuchandar Gudla.

Recently in an interview with the Times Of India, Hansika said, “I like interacting through expressions and I love using GIFs. So, my team said I should think of having my own GIFs. We’ve been working on it for four months now. I was shooting for two films in Hyderabad at that time and allocated half a day to shoot these GIFs.”

She also added that there were restrictions with respect to costume and that a particular tone had to be followed while shooting for it.

Meanwhile, the actor who was last seen in the 2019 Telugu film Tenali Ramkrishna BA BL helmed by G. Nageswara Reddy will next feature in UR Jameel‘s Maha, an untitled Tamil horror-comedy directed by director duo Hari Shankar and Hareesh Narayan, Manoj Damodharan’s Partner and in an untitled raw Telugu web series directed by G Ashok.
