Tamanna was born on 21 December 1989 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India to a Sindhi-speaking couple, Santosh Bhatia and Rajni Bhatia. She did her schooling in Maneckji Cooper Education Trust School, Juhu, Mumbai.
Tamanna started her acting career in 2005 when she played a heroine in Chand Sa Roshan Chehra, a Hindi film. It remains her only Bollywood release to date. The same year, she debuted in Telugu cinema in Sri, playing the leading female role opposite Manoj Kumar. In 2006, she made her debut in the Tamil film industry as a heroine starring in Kedi, which was produced by A. M. Rathnam, along with Ravi Krishna and another newcomer, Ileana D'Cruz.
In 2007, she had three releases. After her appearance in the unsuccessful Vyapari, she starred in the Sekhar Kammula-directed Telugu Happy Days, which received positive reviews and became her first major box office success. Her next release was the Tamil drama film Kalloori, directed by Balaji Sakthivel, that won her accolades and critical acclaim in Tamil as well.
In 2008, she again had three releases, but appeared in cameo roles in two of them. Her 2009 blockbuster Tamil film Ayan made her a leading star. Her recent film Kandein Kadhalai, which is a remake of the 2007 Hindi blockbuster Jab We Met, was considered a moderate success. She took the role originally played by Kareena Kapoor and was praised by critics for her performance. Her first 2010 release was Lingusamy's romantic-action flick Paiyaa, a huge hit. Her recent release was Thillalangadi with Jayam Ravi. She is currently acting in the remake of the Telugu blockbuster Vikramarkudu, Siruthai again alongside Karthik Sivakumar.
