Meghana Raj, who has established herself in the Malayalam industry with a handful of projects, has now shifted her focus to Sandalwood. Meghana currently has three back-to-back films. “I am simultaneously shooting for Vamshodaraka directed by Chikkanna and K M Chaitanya’s Aatagara. I will follow it up with T S Nagabharana’s Allama Prabhu from January 2015. Luckily, Allama was pushed further because of Nagabharana’s son Panaga Bharana’s wedding. Otherwise, I would have had to schedule dates for three films at the same time,” she says.
The actor will leave for Karwar soon along with the crew of Aatagara, which is a typical multistarrer with around 10 actors in the film. Meghana is more than happy to be working in a film that has many actors in it. “It helps us to bond better. To top it, I know most of the actors who are part of Aatagara including Anu Prabhakar and Prakash Belawadi among others. Since I come from a film family, I get to interact with these actors on various occasions. So, it is comfortable working with them and it helps create a better environment. Being alone on the sets, sometimes gets boring. I like to have somebody by my side to talk between the shots,” she says. Though she is yet to sign another project in Malayalam, Meghana is eagerly looking forward to the release of Dolphins starring Suresh Gopi and Anoop Menon.
