Sneha Prasanna Biography

Sneha is a leading actress in the South Indian film industry whose family hails from Panrutti in Tamil Nadu. She was born to Rajaram and Padmavathy in Mumbai and was raised in Dubai. Some of her major films include Autograph, April Madhathil and Vasool Raja MBBS with Kamal Haasan.

Sneha was the one of the few actresses in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam movies who refused to take up glamorous roles, as she believed that her 'homely roles' are appreciated by all South Indian audiences. However, since Chinna, she was seen increasing her glamorous appearances on screen. She has acted in several Tamil and Telugu movies. She has also acted in two Malayalam and Kannada movies.

Sneha began her film career in Malayalam films as a supporting artist, however her major breakthrough came a year after that in a Tamil film called Ennavale opposite Madhavan. Later that year, she starred in the successful venture, Aanandham as well as in a prestigious project for K. Balachandar in Parthale Paravasam. She finished the year with a foray into Telugu cinema, making two appearances in notable films.

In 2002, Sneha broke into the "big league". Unlike many other top actresses of her time, her acting was praised, and was linked to a modern-day Revathi Menon. A total of 8 films were released including her first major hit in Telugu with Hanuman Junction as well as other hits in Unnai Ninaithu and April Madhathil.

Moving ahead, Sneha became more aware with her choice of films, with only two releasing in 2003. The first being with a big actor, Vijay in Vaseegara, the second being a heroine-orientated double role in Parthiban Kanavu. The film became a commercial hit as well as it won plaudits for Sneha's portrayal of the double role.

2004 was a mixed year for the actress, with Jana, Bose, Venky and Adhu, a horror film, all failing at the box office. However, Vasool Raja MBBS, opposite Kamal Haasan, became a commercial success, while her guest role in Autograph, another successful project, was praisedNun.

Though she has acted in many Telugu films, the success of K Ragavendra Rao-directed mythological movie Sri Ramadasu (2006) helped Sneha to firm up her foothold in Telugu cinema. Her role in the movie, steeped in the bhakti culture, was well appreciated by moviegoers. Meanwhile, her Mollywood flick with Mammootty, Thuruppugulan (2006), was also a big hit. In Pudhupettai (2006), Sneha as a battered and bruised prostitute is a revelation. Then, she acted in Thankar Bachan's Pallikoodam, in which she played as a village teacher. Post that she's delivered hit performances in many of her films in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada languages.
