“I was always been passionate about cinema, even as a child, and that is what led me try my luck in tinsel town,” she says.
“I am a dutiful daughter and therefore made sure that I completed my engineering before pursuing a career in acting. Luckily, the architectural firm where I currently work is supportive. Now I get to fulfil a longtime wish, of being an actor on silverscreen.”

The actress had availed a year’s leave at work to complete her shoot, and now she is back at office, awaiting the release of her debut.
“Megha Alias Maggi is a romantic thriller directed by Vishal Puttanna, who is also debuting in this industry,” she says, adding, “I have little to share about this film, but the story comes with a lot of twists and turns, and I believe it is a subject different from what is usually offered to newcomers.”
