Iruvudellava Bittu talks about how career takes precedence over family: Meghana Raj
Talking about the Kantha Kanalli-directed film, the actor reveals that she took four months to okay the script
Meghana Raj’s next Iruvudellava Bittu, directed by Kantha Kanalli, is extra special for the actor for whom it is the first release post her marriage. And coincidentally, the subject of the film revolves around career, marriage and family.
“Today’s men and women are faced with many choices. The world has become so competitive with everyone wanting to succeed,” she says ahead of the film’s release this Friday. “Iruvudellava Bittu talks about how career often takes precedence over family. Sometimes, we forget our personal dreams as we chase professional ones,” she adds.
Meghana believes her character Purvi is self-centred. “She always thinks of herself,” she says, adding, “The director highlights the importance of relationships.”
“Iruvudellava Bittu is a typical family entertainer and is not targeted at any particular age group. This is one of the best characters that has come my way. In fact, I was hesitant to take up the role as I wasn't sure whether I could pull it off. I took four months to say yes,” she says.
About her next move, Meghana shares that she is still meeting directors and reading scripts. “Right now, I am concentrating on this film’s release,” she says, adding, “My husband Chiru (Chiranjeevi Sarja) and my brother-in-law Dhruva Sarja are positive about the film. I have my family completely backing me in my career.”
