Sruthika comes across as a girl-next-door, radiating a lot of innocence. Grand-daughter of Thengai Srinivasan, the legendary comedian, Sruthika needs no introduction to Tamil audience. Her role as the Palakkad Iyer girl madly in love with Maddy, in Nala Damayanthi was noticed by audience and critics alike.
Even while she was 13, offers came her way but her protective parents thought that she was too naïve and immature to be a heroine. But Sruthika confesses with a twinkle in her eye: “But I knew that I was going to be an actress some day.” Soon she was spotted by the producer and director of Sri and they cast her opposite Surya. The film did not do too well at the box-office but everybody noticed the new girl with beautiful eyes and a charming smile.
Srutika says: “Looking back I could have done much better in Sri. I was too young and nobody guided me on my acting or make-up!” Her next film was Kavitalaya’s Album where she was paired with Aryan Rajesh. She proved with Album that she could emote and dance well. She had the screen presence too. The song ”Chellama Chellam…” was a chartbuster though the film did only average business.
In the recent Malayalam film Swapnam Kondoru Thulabharam she was paired with the leading star Suresh Gopi. The film is doing well at the box-office and her role as Ammu has won rave reviews.
Her latest film Thittikuthe produced by R.B.Chowdary of Super Good Films is releasing soon. She is paired with Jeeva in this triangular love story. Sruthika is a a press reporter in Thittikuthe.
Sruthika is right now giving her career a back seat as she is preparing for her 12th board exam. She says: “I got 87 percent for my 10th and now I am aiming to get more marks in 12th. My dream is to do BA literature, though my first love is cinema."
Sruthika is in no hurry, as she wants to do good roles with top heroes and good directors. “I am only 16 now and there is long way to go,” smiles the effervescent heroine who is a big fan of Maddy.
