Talking about Bhama Kalapam, Priyamani said, "It's a thriller. It's got a bit of comedy involved in it, but it's not a rib-tickling comedy. It's more like a dark comedy, a sarcastic dark comedy. The film is about this lady, the character I play, her name is Anupama. She is basically a middle-class woman, very happy, got a happy family, got a loving husband, and a nice child. She is also a YouTuber who cooks new recipes every week for her followers. She also has a habit of finding out what is happening in other people's lives more than her own. Because of this, she gets into a pickle. The way she tries to come out of it, it pulls her deeper and deeper into the pit, and that forms the situational comedy."

"I've never played or seen a character like this before. So I thought it will be a good thing for my debut in the web world in Telugu and Tamil. So I am quite excited and looking forward to the film," she added.

Priyamani also said that she is very conscious about not repeating herself on screen. The actress says that there are many opportunities for female actresses to portray strong characters on screen. "I think, right now, there are a lot of opportunities that are coming. Even in the web world and in the movies also, a lot of people are coming up with strong, female-oriented films, where the entire film is riding on the female. There are films where the whole story is about the female protagonist. Times are evolving and times are changing and it is for the best," she said.
