There may be an unofficial ban on Meera Jasmine preventing from acting in Malayalam movies. But the bubbly and very talented actress is hardly out of work. When her home state black-listed her and refused to give her roles, she did not go into hibernation. Instead, she has found new places where she is needed and where she can polish her already-proven talents. It is the Kannada and Telugu film industries that have taken Meera to their hearts and giving her wonderful roles to perform.
In Kannada, Meera is currently acting in Ijjodu directed by renowned filmmaker M.S. Sathyu. She plays the role of a Devadasi and says that it is a wonderful experience. She has also bagged another film titled Devaru Kotta Thangi, in which she is featured in the role of Shivaraj Kumar's sister.
Devaru Kotta Thangi is being directed by Om Saiprakash, who has done two movies with Shivaraj Kumar with sister sentiments with Radhika as his sister; since Radhika stopped acting, he thought that Meera would be a good replacement.
In Telugu, Meera's next release will be Maa Aayina Chanti Pilladu, where in she is paired up with Sivaji. She is also going to act with Srikanth in Yamagola Mallivachchindhi and Aa Aa Ee Ee. She is also working with Jagapathi Babu in Bangaru Babu.
Meera was banned from acting in Malayalam films when she refused to give dates for the Malayalam movie Twenty:20 produced by AMMA.
