Washington, DC, June 1, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) The beautiful young actress Megha Burman who played the role of Razia in Hollywood 3D film DAM 999 directed by Sohan Roy returns to WBRi to chat with Minakshi Bajpai about her first Bangla movie LATTU (2012) where she plays a female lead opposite acting powerhouse Subrata Dutta. She tells us about her happy journey while shooting for Lattoo which is releasing soon, and hints at her upcoming projects.
Lattoo is a commercial Tollywood movie with all necessary elements for box office success. Being brought up in Kolkata - her "matri bhumi" - Megha is quite comfortable with her Bengali lines. Lattoo was mainly shot in Shantiniketan and Kolkata, once again in Megha's comfort zones being a Kolkatan - and Megha had a lot of fun while shooting for the film. Also she is quite excited to work with some of the leading actors and actress from the Tollywood industry.
Lattoo is directed by Ashish Roy, who made her very comfortable while shooting. She tells us that she would love to work in other Bengali flicks as well.
In Lattoo, Megha Burman essays a young, vibrant girl named Bidisha. Bidisha is a very smart young woman and loves music - someone who Megha can relate to herself. Megha's fellow actors in Lattoo include Sabyasachi Chakraborty, Ushashie Chakraborty, Biswajit Chakraborty, Subrata Dutta, Debashree Roy, Kharaj Mukherjee, Parthasarathi Deb, Lama, Joyjit Banerjee and others.
Megha believes if one wants something from her heart then one obtains it - a belief reinforced by her own ascendancy as an actress. She always wanted to be an actress. Naturally, she pursues acting classes and workshops. Today she is becoming recognizable to the masses all over India. Having already acted in South Indian movies, and after her debut in the Bengali film industry with Lattoo, Megha is looking forward to more Bengali and south Indian films which are already in her kitty.
Megha's secret of her fitness and beauty is rest and sports. She tries to sleep a lot, though she hardly gets enough time because of long hours of shooting. She is also a squash player. Apart from that, she practices yoga and makes it a point to wash frequently with cleansers and conditioners.
Stepping in for all the men out there, Minakshi asks Megha about qualities she looks for in her dream man. It turns out a great sense of humor and the ability to make her laugh is vitally important to win Megha's heart!
