Keerthy is the daughter of yesteryear actress Menaka and producer '
R Suresh Kumar
' who made her debut with Priyadarshan’s ‘’
’’. Naturally, she had dreamt always to become an actress. And then she also had the support of her parents who wanted Keerthy to grow up as an actor. She never had any second thoughts about her career and she had always wanted to become an actor only. Although she is from a family where acting is the only passion, she had naturally gotten to the skin of many characters and had left a mark with each character that she had played. She was given various roles to portray, whether it is a bubbly and loud girl as Maya in
( Tamil -2015), or an urban, calm and quiet Chennai girl in Idhu Enna Maayam (Tamil-2015), every character had helped her to evolve as an actor. But before making a debut as a leading lady, in Mollywood (Geetanjail), she was seen as a child artiste. She appeared as a child artiste in her father’s productions such as’ Pilot’, ‘Achaneyanenikku Ishtam’, and’ Kuberan’(all films had released in 2002).

For Keerthy, making her inroads in cinema was not a cakewalk. The entry was easy, of course, because of her parents and elder sister Revathy’s connections. But she had a talent too in her genes. Apart from two Telugu films such as ‘’Aina Nuvvu Ishtam” and “Harikatha” (2015), she has been signed up for a project with Dhanush too.
