Speaking to, Adhvithi revealed that director Ravi Kiran saw her pictures and offered her 'Girgitle'. "This is the first time I will be seen on screen without my sister. The movie is quite different than regular ones seen nowadays. I will play a contemporary girl, as a lead in the film along with Agnisakhi serial fame Vaishnavi. Director Muttu Kumar's 'Chocolate Boy' is a romantic thriller with a social message. I am working on a web series too. I have a few offers from Telugu and Tamil film industries which I am giving a serious thought," she says.
