Bangalore, June 25 (IANS) Anil Ambani’s Reliance Entertainment is all set to penetrate the southern film market in a big way. It has already announced two projects that will go on floors in August. While one will be directed by M.S. Sathyu and stars young hero Anirudhdh and National Award winning Malayalam actress Meera Jasmine, the other is a comedy scripted and directed by Mohan.
