Meera Nandan, who is mostly seen in supporting roles in Mollywood, has bagged a full-fledged woman-centric role in the yet-to-be-titled Telugu movie directed by Viplav.
Though the actress is thrilled to have bagged a lead role, that too a strong character, she says the going has not been easy. "When director Viplav approached me for the role, I was excited, but only when I started shooting for it did I realise how intense my character was. Since the entire film was based on my character and traces her life from a 14-year-old village girl to a 32-year-old doctor, I was required to adjust my body language accordingly," says Meera, who has completed almost 90 percent of the shoot.
For Meera, the toughest part was shooting her scenes in a remote village. "The place was so isolated with no network connection, that all I wanted was to complete the shoot and get out of there. Since I was playing the central role, I was required to be in almost every scene; I was indeed very stressed out," says Meera, who has been paired opposite Telugu actor Jagapathy Babu, who plays her mentor in the film.
Meanwhile, on the Mollywood front, Meera has made her debut as playback singer in the recently released Mammootty starrer. "Singing Mazhayai was a dream come true for me. It was a melody and I enjoyed every bit singing it. I got the offer from V K Prakash while I was about to fly to Hyderabad for the shoot of my Telugu movie. But when he described the song, I thought of giving it a try and flew to Chennai the very day to record it," says Meera.
