Monal Gujjar never dreamt of becoming an actress. She hails from Ahmadabad. She was neither a make-up doll nor a glam doll to make an entry to glamor industry. She was just an employee in a bank who cleared the audition of fashion show by luck and chance and climbed the ladder to stardom with her positive attitude. Besides being crowned as Miss Gujarat, she even made her way to the finals of Femina Miss India contest.
Her first break in the film industry was with Telugu film, ‘
Sudigadu’. Later, she was signed for two Tamil films. In two Tamil films, she had two different characters that she narrated with conviction and ease. It has been an indeed easy walk for this Gujarati actress to get noticed with her two Tamil films that released on the same day in the theaters. She even had stated that working in an alien language hardly posed any problems for her.
After her three films hit the silver screens, she was signed for her next Telugu film, ‘Brother of Bommali’, opposite
Allari Naresh. Monal Gujjar also acted in a Malayalam movie ‘Dracula 2012’ opposite Sudheer. In 2012, she also appeared in a Telugu film ‘Vennela 1 ½’ opposite
Chaitanya Krishna. Her first two Tamil films ‘
Vanavarayan Vallavarayan’ and ‘
Sigaram Thodu’ released in 2014 on the same day in the theaters. While ‘Sigaram Thodu’ released with positive reviews and excellent box office collection, another film ‘Vanavarayan Vallavarayan’ was well appreciated by critics and did just an average business at the box office. Ever since South Indian cinema needed an actress of North Indian origin, there has been an entry of many North Indians who could not speak a word in South Indian languages but kept South Indian audiences in thrall. It all started with the arrival of Khushboo, Namitha, Jyothika, Simran, etc.
Currently, Monal Gujjar is one such actress who is willing to set the screens ablaze with high-voltage glamor sequences in South Indian cinema.
