Sandhya had a dream debut with Kathal, one the biggest grosser of 2004. She is the youngest heroine in Tamil cinema who is sensible and mature for her age. Revathy alias Sandhya does not hail from a filmi background but brims with confidence and charisma. Sandhya's father Ajith Kumar is an employee of Indian Overseas Bank and mother is a house wife.

Aishwarya in “Kathal” was a very powerful role, which gave her ample scope to perform. For that, Sandhya gives full credit to director Balaji Sakthivel and his script. Sandhya bagged the Filmfare award for Best Actress in Kathal. And now after almost a year her second film Dishyum is releasing. This long gap between the release shows that Sandhya is choosy and handpicks her roles with utmost care.
In Dishyum she plays Cynthia a very smart, bold and practical but homely girl who falls in love with an uneducated stuntman. Though the subject sounds similar to her first film, this one is totally different as it is set in city and Sandhya plays a modern girl who is an art student. In between, she had done a memorable film Alice in wonderland with Jayaram playing her brother in Malayalam.
Sandhya is not against glamour as she thinks that a heroine has to look glamourous but there has to be dignity to it. Her forthcoming films are Vallavan in which she plays Simbu’s friend and she has also signed a performance oriented role in Cheran’s Pokkisham. In Telugu she plays Pawan Kalyan’s sister in Annavaram the remake of Vijay’s Tirupachi, in which the sister role is all-important in the script.
