Megha Akash is one of the promising actors in the current generation and her last release was the Gautham Vasudev Menon directorial - Enai Noki Paayum Thota in which she delivered an impressive performance as Lekha. Apart from ENPT, Megha has also acted as the female lead in STR's Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven and Atharvaa's Boomerang. She also played a brief character in Superstar Rajinikanth's mega blockbuster, Petta, directed by Karthik Subbaraj. Up next, she would be seen playing the love interest of Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi in Yaadhum Oore Yaavarum Kelir. Directed by debutant Venkata Krishna Roghanth, this musical romantic film features an interesting star cast including Vivekh, Riythvika, Kaniha, directors Magizh Thirumeni and Mohan Raja.

Megha will also be seen playing an important role in Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan's next outing, Radhe, which is directed by Prabhu Deva. If things go well, we can expect Radhe to give Megha Akash a good breakthrough in Hindi cinema.

And now, she has been signed to play one of the leads in director Vijay’s next anthology film. More surprisingly, the shooting for this anthology movie has happened recently in a minimal scale following the precautionary measures. Megha Akash has already shot for four days for this anthology film. Talking about the experience of shooting during the pandemic, Megha Akash told Deccan Chronicle, “As a precautionary measure, I had isolated myself for 10 days after shooting because I didn’t want to trouble my grandparents at home. What I realised is that everyone else on the set could work wearing a mask, but actors can’t do that. That’s a very scary thought”.

It looks like director Vijay has silently started his next project during this lockdown phase. There were no announcements or updates regarding this anthology project and it looks like something interesting is in the making. We will get a better clarity on this anthology film in the next few days.

Vijay is also making the biopic of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, J Jayalalitha, titled Thalaivi, which stars Kangana Ranaut in the titular role. Arvind Swami plays M.G.R’s character in this film that also has Madhoo, Poorna, Jisshu Sengupta, Samuthirakani, and Bhagyashree in supporting roles. Produced by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shailesh Singh, Thalaivi has music scored by G.V.Prakash Kumar and cinematography by Vishal Vittal. Thalaivi is being made as a pan Indian film in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu.
