As a continuation to our series of bringing back 'disappeared actresses' to you, here we are with another much loved diva, Keerthi Reddy, who completely vanished after her divorce with actor Sumanth. She had made a special place in million of hearts of Telugites, with her stunning performance in Pawan Kalyan's super hit film, Tholi Prema.
Though the actress appeared in many noted films later like Ravoyi Chandamama, Arjun etc, she is still remembered for her girl next door role in Tholi Prema. Keerthi acted in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and and her Bollywood debut alongside Abhishek Bachchan, in the film Tera Jadoo Chal Gaya, was much talked about at that time.
The actress apparently had quit films after her marriage to actor Akkineni Sumanth. However, the marriage did not last longer and Keerthi Reddy went on to marry a doctor and settled down away from the limelight.
Having said that, Keerthi shined at her cousin, actor Samrat's marriage yesterday after so long and she has instantly caught the attention of shutterbugs around. Keerthi Reddy, who was brought up in Bangalore, is currently staying in USA and is blessed with a baby boy. Though Sumanth and Keerthi Reddy parted their ways, both their families continue to jell along quite well.
