Keerthy Suresh is an artist and actor from India. She was born in Madras, Tamil Nadu, India, on October 17, 1992. She is well known for her roles in Tamil, Telegu, and Malayalam films. She won the National Film Award for Best Actress for her performance as Savitri in the Telegu film Mahanati (2018).

She made her lead character debut in the Malayalam film Geetanjali in 2013 and has subsequently acted in other commercially successful films such as Ring Master, Nenu Sailaja, and Sarkar.

However, the turning point in her career occurred when she acted in the multilingual autobiographical film Mahanati, in which she represented the actress Savitri and was hailed for her portrayal, which many regards as one of the all-time great performances.

The picture was a commercial and critical triumph, and it received numerous awards. The film also established Keerthi Suresh as one of the industry’s top and leading actresses.

Tamil and Telegu Films (2015-2017)

In 2015, Keerthy accepted her first projects outside of Malayalam. She agreed to appear in multiple Tamil cinema projects at the same time. Her debut film was A. L. Vijay’s romantic comedy Idhu Enna Maayam (2015), in which she co-starred with Vikram Prabhu. Nonetheless, the picture did not fare well at the box office.

To accommodate larger projects, she had to withdraw from films she had already begun working on in 2015, such as Krishna’s Maane Thaene Paeye and Deekay’s Kavalai Vendam. As a result, she worked on two films with Sivakarthikeyan in quick succession, Rajini Murugan and Remo, while also acting alongside Dhanush in Prabhu Solomon’s Thodari.

Popularity and widespread appreciation (2018–20)

Her debut Telugu film, Agnyaathavaasi, was released in 2018. Her debut Tamil film, Thaana Serndha Kootam, was released in 2018 and paired her opposite Suriya for the first time. The film earned positive reviews and went on to become a commercial success. She also made an appearance in Nag Ashwin’s epic Mahanati. She received great accolades for her portrayal of the late southern actress Savitri. In late 2018, she acted in three commercial films in succession, directed by AR Murugadoss: Saamy 2 with Vikram, Sandakozhi 2 with Vishal, and Sarkar with Vijay.
