Anisha Ambrose, the up and coming actress of the Telegu screen was born to a mixed Telegu and Odiya family which from her mother’s side had been into the education line for long, both in Odisha and Andhra. Completing her initial education in Odisha where she was born, she completed her subsequent education from Vishakapatnam, ending up with a MBA degree and thereafter joining the computer giant Dell. It was, therefore, a travesty of sorts when she ended up with a career in Telegu films very soon after planning to pursue a corporate career. What caused this to happen was perhaps her casual modeling activities while in Odisha, and a bit of luck from the social media. Some snaps from Anisha’s modeling portfolio had appeared on the photography page of the Facebook account of one of her friends. Somehow this caught the attention of producer Neelima Tirumalasetti, who did not waste time to cast her in the role of Chaitra in the Telegu film “ Alias Janaki” in 2013. Naturally, like all normal parents, Anisha’s were also slightly apprehensive in the beginning about her joining films, but her producer herself being a lady could convince Anisha’s parents. Having joined films she wanted to give it a fair try and make a name for her. Her interest and dedication to work has helped her in bagging 5 films in the short period of 2 years that she has started working. This also includes a Kannada movie in 2015, “Second Hand Lover” which is soon to be released. She has of course not yet worked in any big budget films, and hence is anxiously looking forward to Pawan Kalyan’s “Gabbar Singh 2" where she has already been signed up. It is rumoured that for this role she had been shortlisted from a panel which also contained the names of some Bollywood leading ladies. This big break for her also seems to have come through an excellent stroke of luck. What has been heard in the industry circles is that when Anisha was trying a selfie of her on the sets of Pawan’s “Gopala Gopala”, along with the star himself, she got noticed, and Pawan started making discreet enquiries about her. As luck would have it, she has finally landed up with the role of the leading lady in a major movie.

Her career had a boost when she bagged a negative role in the 1950 film Samsaram for which she gained a lot of appreciation, applause and recognition.
