During the past few months, I’ve had the chance to meet a number of foreigners living and working in Bangalore.  One of these friends, Meghana, left the US last spring and came to India to give acting a shot.  She landed a lead role in a major film here in Bangalore.  Having grown up watching Indian films, she jumped right into the language, the Indian acting style, and even the dancing.  Posters of Meg’s film, Venkata in Sankata, are all over the city now.  My friends and I went to the premiere last week (our photo made it in the newspaper, below!).  It was quite a thrill to see a friend on the red carpet & big screen.  It really made me happy to see Meghana taking such a risk with her career and lifestyle to pursue what she loves.
