Megha Shetty to debut with Tribble Riding

The actor of Jothe Jotheyali fame is set to make her silver screen debut opposite Ganesh in a comedy entertainer directed by Mahesh Gowda

Published: 27th September 2020

Megha Shetty, the current sensation on television, will be making her transition to the big screen with director Mahesh Gowda’s Tribble Riding. She plays the lead role opposite Ganesh in the family comedy entertainer.

Megha has already become a household name for playing Anu, a 20-year-old college student in Jothe Jotheyali, along with Aniruddha Jatkar.

Elated to begin her film career with the Golden Star, Megha tells Cinema Express in this, her first interview, “My entry into acting and being part of a TV serial was unexpected, and now a film coming my way is a bigger surprise.”

An MBA graduate, Megha hails from a family of theatre artistes — her father and grandmother are theatre actors. Though her talent was spotted by Zee Kannada head Raghavendra Hunsur, she credits her sister (Kusumavathi) for being the decision-maker of her acting career. “My sister takes care of my projects and she felt that Tribble Riding would be the good project to begin my stint in the Kannada film industry,” says the actor, who is planning to juggle her shooting schedules between her serial and the film.

Her first words about Ganesh are about his acting skills, and the melodious songs in his films. Megha says she has watched all of Ganesh’s films, and can’t pick one particular favourite.

Tribble Riding has Sai Kartheek composing the music, while Jai Anand is the cinematographer. The film will also feature Sadhu Kokila, Rangayana Raghu, Ravi Shankar Gowda, Kuri Pratap, and senior actors like Umesh and Dingri Nagaraj.

“People always appreciated my presence on the small screen. They often mentioned that I will be making it to the silver screen soon. This good breakthrough to films is with their good wishes,” Megha signs off.
