Shuba Punja, the Tamil heroine of Thirudiya Iyathai, Valibaan, Oru Ponnu Oru Paiyyan and Shanmuga is a native of Mangalore, brought up in Bangalore. Her first Kannada film 'Jackpot' was released on last Friday.
From glam roles, she has transformed as a homely girl in Jackpot and she likes her colleague Antara Biswas’ role very much in the film. “Without knowing the Kannada language Antara Biswas the Bengali girl has performed well” compliments Shuba. This is a rare quality in Shuba indeed.
Shuba has completed her 12th std and has been performing on stage since she was seven year old. She says that her role model is Sridevi and she would love to do what the actress has done in 'Moonra Pirrai' rather than appearing as glam girl. Shuba looks forward to doing good performance oriented roles in future.
