Iruvudellava Bittu will appeal to modern women: Meghana Raj
The actor, who has joined the second schedule of the upcoming romantic drama, plays a modern woman climbing the ladder in the corporate world
Meghana Raj is in a good place in her career with some interesting roles in the offing. She got to feature as Bhanumati in the epic drama, Muniratna Kurukshetra, and also got to be part of an all-women crime thriller, MMCH, directed by Musanje Mahesh. And now she is excited about the film she is currently working on -- Iruvudellava Bittu.
"Of late, what drives me to go to sets is the character I have been offered. The role I play in Iruvudellava Bittu, directed by Kantha Kanalli, will be every heroine's dream role," says Meghana, who is shooting the second schedule of the film.
"The film will appeal to modern women, as it's about today's corporate world, and how that balances with love and relationships. For a woman, when ambitions get to her head, she tries doing everything possible. In this process, you tend to cut of ties with people to reach a certain destination. Women of this generation go through this a lot," she adds.
Not categorising this romantic family drama as male or female centric, "it is more story driven," she says.
"We are all very strong, but somewhere it is about give and take, but the word 'compromise' has somehow disappeared for both men and women of today," she adds.
Meghana says the role isn't negative, "but situations have made her that way, and people tend to see the character as being negative. The kind of emotions I am going through while playing this role are only getting crazier by the day."
The film travels through Thirthahalli, Koppa and Kundapura, and this schedule will be shot in Bengaluru, followed by Ooty. So why is a film about the corporate world taking her to all these places? "That's the catch in Iruvudellava Bittu," Meghana tells us, refusing to reveal more.
The film has Thilak and Sri Mahadev in the cast, with Sridhar V Sambram as its music director and William David, of Rangitaranga fame, as its cinematographer.
