Model turned actress Megha Dhade who has done several Marathi films came to Bangalore recently to work for few interesting projects. "I started my career as a model and then went on to do some serials. However, that wasn't enough and that's when I landed in Marathi cinema as it is my mother tongue,” says Megha, whose aspirations grew stronger to experiment with South Indian films.

Megha has done seven Marathi films before she landed to Bangalore to pitch her tent to look out for some interesting projects down South here. She says, "I would like to work in South Indian films. Language is no barrier and I would like to pursue a career in this industry as it is getting all the attention now. In fact, we are a seeing lot of South Indian movies, being remade in Bollywood. So why not be a part of an industry which is generating some good movies."

Being a Mumbai girl, Megha opted for South ern films over Bollywood. "I do have an offer in Hindi cinema, which is yet to take off. Right now I am here because I have been called by filmmakers to discuss about a few projects. Once that gets through, I would be able to get a better picture," she said. Though right now, she is looking for opportunities in Kannada industry, she would also like to get into other languages. "I need to first showcase my talent in one film down South to get a hold of this industry. I am a South movie buff and a great fan of Rajinikanth and Suriya. I consider South cinema as total entertainment. Basically I am passionate about cinema. So irrespective of language, my bond with movies will remain strong. The actress got to know about Kannada cinema through her friend Daisy Shah. "Daisy had a good start in Kannada with Bhadra opposite Prajwal Devaraj and another film Bodyguard. I have heard a lot about Sudeep, who has earned a reputation in Bollywood too," she signed off.
