Roma Asrani is a Mollywood actress who was a model in her career before making her foray into movies. She also acted in Telugu, Tamil and Kannada language films. But she got maximum offers from Malayalam film industry only. Although she had made her debut with Telugu movie Mr. Errababu (2005), the actress got the offer from other regional languages too and made debut in a Tamil film with ‘Kathale En Kathale’(2006) and her first Kannada film was ‘
Aramane’ (2007). Despite having signed different projects in various languages, she shot to fame with a Malayalam movie '
Notebook' which was a film that depicted the life of three students at a boarding school, and how they face up to challenges in their lives. The central plot of the movie was on three students Roma, Parvathy and Mariya Roy. The film won critical acclaim and even fared well in box office. Roma received a couple of awards for her performance in this film and even won new talent debut award from Kerala TV channels. Her next movie ‘
Chocolate’ was a mega hit and she became a sensational female star in Mollywood. She became a teenage craze in viewer’s eyes with film ‘Chocolate’.
Roma's earlier film ‘July 4’ faced mixed response. Later on, many of her movies did not fare too well at the box office and had been even a disaster too; She has acted with many established actors of Malayalam cinema such as Dileep, Kunchacko Boban, Mammootty, Jayasurya and Prithviraj and given memorable performances. The actress could not sustain the magic of ‘Notebook’ or even ‘‘Chocolate’ in a later period of her career. However, she has not yet given up her hope and still continues to appear in many Malayalam movies. After the movie 'Face to face" had flopped in which she acted with Mammootty in the year 2012, she did not sign any movies. In 2015, she made her come back with Namaste Bali with
Aju Varghese. The film was received well in theaters.
