Full Biography of Actress Meghana Raj

Meghana Raj is an Indian film actress, who works mainly in Malayalam films as well as in the other South Indian languages. She made her acting debut in the 2009 Telugu film Bendu Apparao R.M.P. She is noted for her flexibility in portraying various kinds of roles in her short career so far.

Meghana Raj was born in Bangalore, Karnataka as the only daughter to film actors Sundar Raj and Pramila Joshai. Her father Sundar Raj has acted in more than 180 films, predominantly in Kannada language, while her mother Pramila Joshai is a noted Kannada film actress and film producer. Because of her mixed background, Meghana is fluent in both Kannada and Tamil, speaking Kannada at home and Tamil at her grandparents\' house. She is currently pursuing her Bachelor\'s degree in psychology at Christ University, Bangalore.

Meghana Raj first debuted as a theater artist, when she was a child, acting alongside her father Sunder Raj in the play Jokumaraswamy. During the audio launch function of the Tamil film Poi in February 2006, she was invited by its director K. Balachander to pursue an acting career, starring in one of his forthcoming films. Accepting his offer, she was given the lead female role in the Tamil film Krishnaleelai, a Balachander production, directed by Selvan. However, despite continuing shooting throughout 2008, which was completed in early 2009, the film got stuck in production hell, and its release got delayed for various reasons.

Even before the release of that film, she commenced shooting for a Telugu film Bendu Apparao R.M.P, which would eventually be her first feature film release. She played the character of a school teacher in the comedy entertainer, starring Allari Naresh and Kamna Jethmalani as well, which released in October 2009 and went on to become highly successful at the box office. She debuted in the Kannada film industry by enacting the female lead role in the Kannada film Punda, a remake of the 2007 Tamil film Polladhavan. Meghana\'s next release was her debut Tamil film, the Boopathy Pandian-directed Kaadhal Solla Vandhen, which was a commercial failure, while she also signed up her first Malayalam project, the horror film Yakshiyum Njanum under Vinayan\'s direction, which was released in August 2010. The film was an average grosser at the Box office but its glamorously picturized songs on Meghana was a hit among the youth. During that time she also acted in two more Tamil projects, Nandha Nandhitha, which is a remake of the 2008 Kannada film Nanda Loves Nanditha and Kalla Siripazhaga.

After a series of flops for most of 2011 where she was seen repeatedly casted merely as a glamour actress Meghana reverted back to winning ways with the superhit Malayalam film Beautiful which was released in the first week of December. The film was a success both commercially and critically and critics widely regarded it as one of the best Malayalam movies of 2011. Meghana\'s portrayal of \"Anjali\" a home nurse in the movie won her very good reviews. Since getting noticed with Beautiful Meghana has got a lot of Malayalam films in her hand currently. Simultaneously she has got offers from other South Indian languages as well thus making her one of the most sought out heroine in South India currently.

Recently Meghana underwent a total physique revamp by going through a strict diet and exercise regime. She made this decision partly because she was getting constantly ignored in Kannada films (her mother tongue) and the reason told was she was fat.

Her Malayalam film Namukku Parkkan got released on 29 June 2012 and did a decent business at the box office. Then came Mullamottum Munthiricharum which turned out to be a commercial failure. Her next movie released in Malayalam was Banking Hours 10 to 4 (released on 05th Oct 2012) in which Meghana played the role of a cop for the first time. The film was declared a flop. Her latest Malayalam release was Poppins which was released on 30 November 2012 mostly to mixed and negative reviews.

She has currently completed shooting for the Malayalam movies Maad Dad and Madirashi. She now works in the Telugu film Lucky which will see her back in the modern glamour attire. She is also shooting currently for the Malayalam movie Red Wine in which she comes together with the Malayalam superstar Mohanlal for the first time. It was Mohanlal himself who invited Meghana to be part of the film after he was impressed with her performance in Beautiful.
