A couple of weeks ago, T-Series and Cine 1 Studios announced a new film, Satellite Shankar, starring Sooraj Pancholi, making it his third big-screen outing. The film, which will see Sooraj portray the role of a solider, will be the first Bollywood venture to be shot across ten Indian states, and is likely to go on floors post Sooraj’s sophomore film, Time to Dance, which also marks the debut of Katrina Kaif’s younger sister, Isabelle. However, the name of the leading lady of Satellite Shankar has been kept tightly under wraps, and everyone in the industry and media has been constantly speculating about the heroine’s identity. Well, the tongues can stop wagging now because the cat is finally out of the bag.
Megha Akash, who has emerged as one of the biggest names in the Tamil industry after bagging Dhanush and Rajinikanth’s upcoming films, Enai Noki Paayum Thota and Petta, will be making her Bollywood debut in Satellite Shankar as the film’s leading lady. After vowing Kollywood audiences, Megha has been waiting for the right break in the Hindi film industry, and word is that she didn’t hesitate to grab this project once it was offered to her.
Satellite Shankar is currently being shot in Himachal Pradesh, where Megha has joined Sooraj on the sets. An official announcement by the makers, welcoming Megha to the team, is expected soon.
