She debuted as a child artiste, in the two 1990 films “Chapala Chennigaraya” followed by “Shanti Kranti” and later went on to act in over 60 films, establishing herself well in the Kannada film industry. Having acted as the leading lady in several films, she now seems to have decided to play more of cameo roles, judging from her chosen role in the upcoming film, “Fair and Lovely”. Industry circles also say that she is perhaps now trying to get into a directorial mould – a long felt aspiration of hers. On the sidelines, she is also trying to catch up with finishing her education which she had to abruptly interrupt due to the priorities of acting, when she was an upcoming actress. After all, she had debuted as a child artiste, but her first lead role came only after another 9 years in 1999. That was in the film “Hrudaya Hrudaya”, pairing with one of the leading heroes of the time, Shivarajkumar. In her longish career thereafter, she had occasion to appear opposite Vishnuvardhan in a series of films, starting with “Soorappa” in 2000 till “ Varsha Born in 1995, Coorg, Karnataka, Varsha Bollamma is >> Read More... ” in 2005, the pair being a favourite of the cine-going crowd in Kannada at that time. Though her list of awards has been impressive, the most coveted must have been the Abhinaya Saraswathi title given to her by Kolada Math (a well known Bangalore Cultural organization), for her overall contribution to Kannada films.

Perhaps the only major blot on her career has come not from her acting skills but from her personal life –the much publicized marriage of hers with , well known producer of Kannada films who also happens to be the son of yesteryear actress Jayanthi did not last long and ended up in a divorce.
Amulya Kannada Actress

Amulya

Although today Amulya is one of the more well-known younger generation actresses of the Kannada screen, she had actually started off as a child artist in 2001, when she was just 7 years old, in the film “Parva” which had one of the leading actors of the time, Vishnuvardhan playing the lead role in that film. In fact, it took her another 14 years after her childhood debut, to enter films as a lead artist. That was in the film “Cheluvina Chittara” in 2007, which had a reasonable success at the box office. Later on, between the years 2008 to 2013 she achieved a fair amount of commercial success in the movies “Chaitrada Chandrama”, “Naanu Nanna Kanasu” and “Shravani Subramanya”, though her next 4 or 5 films did not do well in the box office, although her individual performances were well appreciated. A string of indifferent results at the box office made her ponder about her future, although she could realize that it was not her performance that was to blame. She took a break for about two years, and chose to appear in the film “Shravani Subramanya” opposite Ganesh. The film was a big hit and her performance drew rave reviews from critics. This was followed in the same year, by a significant recognition for her talents when she was given the 'Golden Queen' title by her co-star Ganesh, in the film “Shravani Subramanya”. In fact, that performance also won for her, her firstFilmfare Award,for the Best Actress. After a tumultuous 2013 her appearances thinned down a bit. She had only one film in 2014, and for her first film of 2015, “Khushi Khushiyagi”, she was paired opposite Ganesh for a third time, and once again her performance was praised by critics, many comparing this with her award winning performance in “Shravani Subramanya” In fact, she is currently filming for at least another 3 films in 2015, and seems to be well on her way to grabbing a significant spot as a leading lady in the Kannada film industry.
