rani : hey, why didnt youtart ur film career with a big film witrh big stars
Meghna Naidu : Cause its very difficult for a newcomer to get into the 'big star' category unless you prove yourself initially with the small people!

phosphazene : hi meghan this is saikat from bangalore a student of iisc,doing research here,u must befine,ur new movies tell me something
Meghna Naidu : My forthcoming film is Rain, in which I'm playing a blind girl. The other film is Bekaraar, in which I play a don.

Meghna Naidu : I'm very well, thank you.

Jeevan : Hi Meghna, your contemporary Payal Rohatgi and Mallika Sherawat are making in big banners or international cinema. When are you likely to make it? Are you still awaiting to get any big banner in near future?
Meghna Naidu : Yes, I am getting a lot of offers, but I'm taking it very slow right now because I have just completed five films, and I need to take a break. But by next year you'll see me doing better films and better roles.

phosphazene : tell me meghna somehting about bengali film experience
Meghna Naidu : Oh it was a great experience working in Bengali. As my mom is half a Bengali, I understand the language very well and Mithunda was also in the film which made things very easy.

Meghna Naidu : I have taken up a role of substance. If you watch my film called Rain, in which I'm playing a blind woman, it is about why a woman is so scared of rain, and what torture she's gone through in life to really be scared of rain.

gunz : Hi Meghna I feel you have done a great job in your album..but do you feel there is a lot of unwanted importance given nowadays for actresses who show more of skin?
Meghna Naidu : It's not that actressesd who show skin are unwanted these days. It's just that when I did Hawas, it was an experimental film, but after that there were hundreds of films which came that way and which actually took the charm off.

delwyn : Hi Megha, I understand the casting couch issue is quite a "touchy" one recently. What has been your personal experience & whats your views on this? Am looking for an honest answer so just shoot :o)
Meghna Naidu : I have never experienced the casting couch in the last three years of my being in the industry. I have heard that it does exist, but unless I experience it I cannot say whether it is true or false.

lithium_on_dope : One last question. Do you think you are the same person who you were before all this celebritydom, flood-lights, cameras, and flashes started glaring you? If yes, then are you being honest/modest about yourself. If no, then do you really need to step back and think about the many people who were, and aren't in your life. Any regrets? Any pleasure?
Meghna Naidu : yes, I am the same person even after all this hype about me and everything. I'm a normal girl who came from a middle-class family. I have seen the limelight right now, and I would definitely like to live like I always used to live.

Meghna Naidu : I'm not looking for awards. I'm just looking for good performances. Yes, I have got a lot of awards for my performance in Kaliyon Ka Chaman, and it feels great, but the best part is that people loved me in it and that's what I want. Even with my performances in the movies.
