Meghna Naidu made her sensational debut with the 2000 Bollywood film 'Hawas'. In the same year, her song Kaliyon Ka Chaman gained immense popularity.
Meghna is a trained Bharatnatyam dancer. She used to even coach Tennis in the US.
Meghna's Bollywood career never took off, but she has done several films in the South. Apart from Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu movies, Meghna had also tried her luck in Bengali films as well.
Meghna Naidu has worked in television shows such as Adaalat and Sasural Simar Ka.
Meghna had also participated in the first season of the show Fear Factor- Khatron Ke Khiladi.
Meghna was last seen in the 2016 film Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3. In 2018, the actress, who has always been seen doing bold characters on-screen, announced that she will play a sex worker in 'Sitara', a Bengali film.
Talking about her role in Sitara, Meghna Naidu was quoted by IANS: "I am playing the role of Lokkhonna. The film's story is about the time when people used to smuggle things in and out of India and Bangladesh. The women used to be in flesh trade. My character is also the one who helps smuggling goods and is also a flesh trade worker."
Meghna Naidu was set for a comeback as the actress in Sitara. However, the news of Sitara soon fizzled out!
Meghna is quite active on social media and recently she had shared this throwback picture of herself with her parents and her younger sister, Sona.

On the personal front, since 2011, Meghna has been in a relationship with Tennis player Luis Miguel Reis. Incidentally, Meghna's father Ethiraj who worked with Air India is a tennis coach as well.
In April 2019, Meghna Naidu took the internet by surprise, when she announced that she had been married for two years. YES! The actress is no more single and secretly got married in 2017! Meghna took to Twitter to share the news, "And here is the big news. For all those who knew about our wedding, Thank you for respecting our privacy... And for all those who don't know or had a doubt here is some news !!! [sic]"
Meghna and Luis had gotten married in Mumbai on December 25, 2016, after a courtship of almost six years.
