Actress Shona Chabra (Chhabra), who entered Sandalwood through Savaal opposite Prajwal Devaraj, has packed her bags and relocated to Mumbai, as her past came back to haunt her, impacting her career in south.

Apparently, the actress was a bar girl before a casting coordinator spotted her and offered her a role in Savaal. Though not a trained actor, her good looks quickly fetched the actress her second Kannada movie Black Cobra opposite top star Duniya Vijay. However, as soon as the producer learnt about her background, he immediately dropped her from the project and announced her replacement heroine. It is not clear whether Vijay was apprehensive about sharing the screen space with Shona.

The actress had quietly relocated to Mumbai to pursue a career in Hindi movies and TV serials. In the past, she had acted in a Hindi movie titled Janleva 555, which went unnoticed. Later, she was seen in a Telugu movie Parking, which is yet to release.

Savaal did not perform well in the theatres, though the making and the music was impressive. The actress turned up for the audio release of the movie, but the media flooded her questions about her past. Subsequently, she was not seen in the promotion of the movie in Bangalore.

The actress informed her casting manager in Kannada that she was no more interested in south projects. It is said that the actress has landed a plum role in a popular soap opera in Hindi. It is to be seen if she makes it big in Mumbai.
