She has made her mark with her impressive performances in Tamil and Telugu films and wishes to spread her wings across Bollywood as well.

Meera, in her previous interview, spoke about Bollywood and the talent one requires to get in and added, “Only if you are very strong and passionate about your craft, will you be able to sustain yourself. Else Bollywood can literally break you.”
