July 29, 2005 13:25 IST

Meghna NaiduKaliyon ka chaman girl Meghna Naidu [Images] stole hearts when she chatted with readers on July 26, as is evident from the first part of the chat transcript.

For those who did not catch her at the Rediff Chat, here's the second and last part of the transcript.

Irsi : most flattering complement u ever got?
Meghna Naidu : I keep getting complements all the time. When an old uncle or an auntie complements me on anything, I think that's the most flattering. Whatever they comment.

kunalmomaya233 : Meghana don't u feel shy while doing bold scenes
Meghna Naidu : yes, it is embarrassing while doing scenes like that because there are a hundred people around you. And you don't know the person whom you're going to be acting opposite.

kuldeep : whats special about you that makes u different from others
Meghna Naidu : I think you'll have to ask the people whom I work with!

mrinal1 : hi Meghna.......where do u rate urself in this industry? R u satisfied with what u achieved so far?
Meghna Naidu : I have just joined the industry. It's just a year that I've been in the industry. WHatever I've achieved so far is great, because a lot of people take about 5-10 years for popularity, and I have got it within a year, so I'm happy.

kcpkcp : DO u feel so much of skin showing is the mantra to become popular?and is it good for indian movie?No family will watch the movie like this?
Meghna Naidu : I think skin-show comes in a form of character that you play on screen. If I'm playing a model, obviously I can't be in a sari all the time. And I think people should get out of all the old thinking and watch movies like this - it's an eye-opener to all the youngsters in India.

Kanishka : in your words what is the must for for an aspiring actor or like?
Meghna Naidu : self-confidence and determination.

Shivinder : so meghna .wat happende no reply .seems here alos there is long queue for ur admirers.thats 5 yrs down the line whr u se urself in bollywood
Meghna Naidu : I see myself doing better movies, better roles.

Subbu : Is your life ambition to be come an actress or is it an accident? What do you wanted to become? Any childhood dreams?
Meghna Naidu : It is by accident. I always wanted to work in the US, or probably be an air hostess.

maddu : MEGHNA whats about your show at gorakhpur
Meghna Naidu : Yes, I did a show in Gorakhpur and it was a crazy experience. But a great crowd and I'd love to come back to Gorakhpur again.

bullseye : what is your dream holiday destination
Meghna Naidu : it will have to be Venice, and Egypt. and in India, it will be the backwaters in Kerala [Images].

bhatiashish : don't u think the easiest way to get in film industry is to appear in sizzling hot vedios and then get the "lucky break" do u think there is any scope or appreciation for real talent???Pls answer honestly
Meghna Naidu : I don't think that's the easiest way. But yes, if you do a music video and it does very well, then you do have an option to do films. But you have to work very very very hard to get into the industry. I know people who have struggled for more than 5 years and still not got a break.

nagu : Hi Meghana : As per u which directors are best rightnow
Meghna Naidu : We have a lot of newcomer directors coming up, in which you have Madhur Bhandarkar, Nikhil Advani and of course you have the Chopras and Subhash Ghais also. There are a lot of good directors.

Kanishka : do u like SRK [Images]? Meghna

AC_cool : how do u rate hawas with murder
Meghna Naidu : I think Hawas and Murder were on the same lines, but it's just that Murder had better packaging and of course you had Mahesh Bhatt [Images] to back the whole package, whereas the whole team in Hawas was new.

Niru : Would you like to work with Maniratnam?
Meghna Naidu : I would love to work with Mani Rathnam. I think he's a brilliant director, and it would be an honour to work with him.
