Dipa Shah is another Mumbai import girl, who made her break in Tamil cinema. She had a modeling career and moved to Kollywood. She is one of those Mumbai girls who has found Chennai cinema to be the stepping stone. 

Known for modeling look, nobody can believe she looks like a south Indian girl in Tamil cinema. Her character as a south Indian girl, who hails from Ooty in Sillunnu Oru Santhippu, in which she was cast opposite Vimal was a point to prove this. 

The film was directed by Ravi Lallin and gave her recognition in Kollywood, but this actress was seen earlier in Yuddham Sei and had acted even in a Malayalam movie named China Town. She played role of trainee cop in Yuddham (Tamil) which fetched her critical applause. She played a serious role in it, which went well with the audiences down south. 

She has been very choosy in selecting scripts and therefore had rejected many offers that came to her in Kollywood. Known for her professionalism value, she will also sign a film on dotted line if the script is interesting. 

She was born in Mumbai to a business family. She has a younger sister named Dhara Shah and mother Jarana Shah and father Deepak Shah, who had been supportive to her in making career in Kollywood. 

Like many of her counterparts Khushboo, Simran, or Joythika who tagged the queen of Kollywood, here is a chance for Dipa shah to fill the space soon and move to superstardom. 

With her girl next door looks she is here to stay in Kollywood hereafter. She is like a breath of fresh air and a must watch for all teenagers for her cute look.
