Beauty with Dignity
Soundarya requires no prologue. To cut it short in a single sentence Soundarya is multitalented more beautiful and very much established with her dignified roles.
Sowmya who later transformed as Soundarya was born on July 17th hails from Bangalore. She was brought up in the cinema environment, as her father Satyanarayana was a producer, director and actor in the Kannada film industry.
It was while Soundarya was doing her first year MBBS course, one of her father�s friends offered her a role for his Kannada film. Thus the Kannada film �Gandharva� which was released in 1992, gave way to her for a successful film career. Later she made her Tamil debut with the film �Ponnumani� starred opposite to Tamil hero Karthik. However, the credit goes to Telugu industry for giving her great preferment and prominence. Even though her first Telugu venture was �Raithu Bharatham�, it was the
film �Manavaraali Pelli�, which released in the year 1993 said to be her debut.
She became popular with the film �Top Hero� with Balakrishna. Later she came into limelight with the film �Hello Brother� in which she has co starred with Nagarjuna. In spite of her halfhearted entry into the film industry, she started loving her career after the film �Ammoru�.
Soundarya has of late produced a film in her mother tongue Kannada, under Girish Kasaravalli�s direction. The film �Dweepa� bagged her three State Awards � Best Actress, Best Film, and Best Cinematography. The film went trough five international film festivals. Soundarya mulls over on making the film in English. Soundarya is also working with Girish Kasaravalli for �Gruhabanga�, a Kannada television serial.
The actress recently tied nuptial knots with her distant relative Mr. Sridhar, a software professional, on Sunday April 17 2004, at a resort on the outskirts of Bangalore.
�It's not beauty alone which can take you places� Soundarya says.
�Without positive and healthy criticism there can be no growth or improvement in artistes�.
�Cinema is never a single person's show�.
�I honour personal and professional discipline�.
Soundarya has acted in more than 102 films.
