Easwari Rao can easily take a credit in south Indian cinema being the new face of veteran film maker Balu Mahendra. Easwari Rao made her debut in Raman Abdullah in Balu Mahendra;s project. She was very choosy in selecting her role and had opted out from many projects that came in her way after her break in Balu Mahendra’s flick. After this film, offers came one after one, but she neglected it as she was very choosy then.

She was also cast in Bharatiraja’s film opposite Napoleon, but the film did not take off and was shelved. Otherwise, one could find Easwari into top actresses list, as Bhartiraja always made women-oriented films and done best justice to any character in his films. She acted in many Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam movies too. She was seen in Appu as Prashant’s sister, Later on, she switched off to some TV serial projects in Sun TV, Gemini TV, Jaya TV and Vijay TV. She was a glamour girl in 1992, who had cast a brief spell in the screen with some good roles. 

Her sister Manasa also was an actress, but she appeared few films only and she left. Her popular serial Kokila Enge Pogiral was made for Sun TV and she was the face when TV serials were aired on private channel like Sun TV. , she acted in number of TV shows like Kasthuri, Avai Appadithan and Ninne Pelladutna and Agni Saatchi and a couple of more serials that shot her into households fame. She won the Tamil Nadu State Film Awards as a best supporting actress for the film Virumbugiren released in 2002.
Diya Tamil Actress

Diya

Diya is a Tamil film actress, who shot into fame with a few projects. She was lucky to grab best offers that came in her way and became a known actress with a few films that she had in hand, but she voluntarily opted out of films and bid a goodbye to celluloid world thereby leaving her fans unhappy. She married software engineer Arvind and got settled as a house wife. In celluloid world, she will be most remembered for her outstanding performance with Raja’s son Dhanush for “Dreams” which had released in 2004. Her first break was with Kurumbu in 2003. This film bombed in the box office. The film was a remake of 2002 Telugu film Allari, which had Allari Naresh in the actor role and Diya and Nikita in lead actresses roles. The film was not able to get a mass appeal, although it was a triangular teenage love story. After failure of Kurumbu, she got another major break with Dhanush in Dreams. This film also bombed in the box office. Her next project Karka Kasadara too did not fare well in the box office. Her film Kodambakkm released in 2005 was received well in the box office, which also had actress Nandha making her debut. The film also fetched critical acclaim and many awards and Diya’s continuous failure in box office met with success at last. After mixed response from the viewers in Tamil cinema, the actress switched off to the Telugu celluloid world and grabbed a film with Kalyan Ram Nandamuri in Asadhyudu that was released in 2006. This film was also a disaster in box office. Her next film, Lakshmi Putrudu with Uday Kiran did not meet with success. She acted in a Malayalam movie Bhargavacharitham Moonam Khandam in 2006, which was also a flop. With no major success in her career, she tried her luck again in her last Tamil movie named Kadhal Endral Enna, which totally banked on Diya and the movie is still worth watching a number of times.
