Southern actress Meera Chopra, who teamed up with a host of actors in her Bollywood debut "Gang of Ghosts", says there is an advantage of working in a multi-starrer - the onus is on everyone if the movie doesn't work.

Released Friday, the comedy revolves around ghosts. It has been directed by Satish Kaushik who pulled off an impressive cast that includes Sharman Joshi, Parambrata Chatterjee, Mahie Gill, Anupam Kher, Saurabh Shukla, Rajpal Yadav and Jackie Shroff. It has got a lukewarm respone at the box office.

Meera said: "Before this film ('Gang of Ghosts'), I had signed Vikram Bhatt's film, which is a supernatural love story. So first, I signed that, but first this film released. So I feel it's an advantage for me...even if it's a flop, the entire burden will not be on me as the film has an ensemble cast."

"If a film has an ensemble cast, the loss is borne by all the actors and I am glad I am debuting with the film. My next film is a solo project," she added.

Meera started her acting career in southern film industry and her first few releases include her hit debut Tamil film "Anbe Aaruyire" and Telugu movie "Bangaram".

When asked why did she start her career with southern cinema, she said offer knocked on her door.

"I was working in NDTV, did modelling projects and got opportunities down South. So, I did South film and my debut film became a huge hit and I started getting good offers after that. Had I got opportunities from Bollywood I would have definitely done that. The dream was to work in Bollywood."
