Meera Chopra started her acting career in South films. She made her debut in SJ Surya's Anbe Aaruyire and has acted in over 10 films in Tamil and Telugu industries. Now, the actress, who was in the news last year over a murder case, is game for Bollywood.
Meera Chopra is all set to enter the Hindi film industry with director Satish Kaushik's Gang of Ghosts. She is confident that the film will be a hit. Talking about the film, she claimed, "When Satishji narrated the script, I was laughing like crazy. So, when you laugh that much at narration, you can imagine how much the audience would laugh. So, I think it'll be a sure shot hit. It is very important to have a hit movie at the beginning."
Throwing light on her other Hindi films, Meera Chopra said that she has also signed third instalment of Vikram Bhatt's 1920 franchise and is excited about her role. "I have been trying since last one year. My main aim was to work with good production houses, good directors and have a good role. My role in 1920 was so mind-blowing that when Vikram narrated me the script, I didn't even ask him who the actor was."
