Gayathrie was just studying in 12th standard, when she received film offers. It was like a dream for her and once she mentioned that she took up acting just for the sake of it and never actually planned. She has also revealed that stage fright and agitation over public speaking affected her, but she came out of that once she entered the film industry. 

Gayathrie had confessed that, she is like a gypsy by heart and would have taken up something related to psychology if she was not an actress. 

When she was studying in 12th standard she got the film En Ippadi Mayakkinai, but the film was not released and hence in the gap she pursued her degree, much to the happiness of her mother.

Gayathri Raguram Tamil Actress

Gayathri Raguram

Born on 23rd April 1984 in Chennai, Gayathri Raguram is a choreographer as well as a film actress. Her region of interest is south Indian films. She is the daughter of renowned dancer Raguram. During 2002 she acted in the film Charlie Chaplin; this film was highly entertaining and she was paired opposite dancing sensation Prabhu Deva. Later she switched to choreography. Gayathri’s career in acting started when she was at her teens. She had once confessed that acting was never her choice, but offers rained in her way. She always wanted to be called by her full name Gayathri Raguram, since she doesn’t want to be misunderstood with another actress of the time, Gayatri Jayaraman. Following her debut in Charlie Chaplin, she acted in Malayalam, Kannada and Tamil, totaling 4 films in her career. These films went unnoticed and she quit acting only to settle in USA. This decision was made since her film with actor Dhanush didn’t get released at the right time. The year 2008 saw her return as a choreographer and the films she choreographed include Poi Solla Porom and Jayam Kondaan. Kandaswamy, Ko, Aadhavan and Vanam are some of the big budget films that she worked. She worked in the Tamil film Tamil Padam and she got good response for that. She had donned the role of a choreographer for over 100 films by 2014. Of late, she had acted in the film Vai Raja Vai where she played the role of Gautham Karthik’s younger sister. She acted in this film after a sabbatical of nearly a decade. But again, she was seen in special appearances in several movies. On her personal front, Gayatri Raguram is the niece of renowned dancer Kala. Gayatri was wedded to a software engineer in 2006, but they parted ways in three years.
