Trisha krishnnan Biography | Trisha Profile

Trisha Krishnan was born on May 4, 1983 in Chennai into a Tamil family hailing from Palakkad, Kerala. Her parents are Krishnan and Uma, who are Tamil Iyer. She completed schooling from Sacred Heart Church Park School and later joined Ethiraj College in Chennai. In school, she participated in several cultural activities, sports and school band. While studying at M. S. E. C College, she ventured into part-time modeling and participated in various beauty pageants. Trisha took up modeling. She participated and won many contests like Miss Salem 1999, Miss Chennai 1999 and she was also voted Miss Beautiful Smile at the Miss India contest in 2001. About her relationship with her mother Uma Krishnan, Trisha remarks, "She has been the pillar of my strength and has stood by me like a rock through thick and thin.[...] Everyone in the industry and my friends know how close I'm to my mom."

Soon after her pageant success, Krishnan began her career acting in an uncredited role as Simran's friend in Jodi before moving onto appear in advertisements and in music videos, with Falguni Pathak's Meri Chunar Ud Ud Jaye being the most prominent.

The first project she accepted was the Priyadarshan-directed Lesa Lesa, with the promotional posters for the film, also creating an offer to star in the A. R. Rahman musical, Enakku 20 Unakku 18 (2003). However both the projects' releases were severely delayed, and her first release was Ameer's Mounam Pesiyadhe opposite Surya Sivakumar. The film became a moderate success at the box office and managed to gain credentials for Trisha, with critics claiming that she was "undoubtedly a refreshing new find, with sparkling eyes and appealing demeanour", also going onto praise the dubbing artiste, Savitha Reddy, who has since regularly dubbed for Trisha. Manasellam, her second project, saw her play a cancer patient; but the film went unnoticed despite positive reviews for the film and the actress.

In 2004, she debuted in the Telugu cinema industry with M. S. Raju's romance-action film Varsham, which turned her into an overnight sensation. Critics lauded her performance as Sailaja, a middle-class girl who becomes a film star on her father's insistence; Jeevi from Idlebrain claimed that she was "beautiful" and a "big plus to the film", labelling her performance as "natural", , while Sify noted that she had "transformed herself into a fine actress with immense screen presence". A critic from adressed high praise to her, citing that she had shown "why Tamil Nadu is busy building her a temple", further adding that she looked "so fresh and fine, you feel like gifting her to the roses". While the film was highly commercially successful, running for over 175 days theatres, being declared a "sensational hit" and becoming one of the highest-grossers of the year, Trisha was given the Telugu Filmfare, as well as the Santosham Award for Best Actress. She was also offered the same role in its Tamil remake Mazhai, which she however declined. Later that year, she was part of another commercially successful Tamil venture, Ghilli. In 2005, she starred alongside Siddharth Narayan in the Telugu flick Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana as the village girl Siri. The film is about a rich boy, who tries to marry a girl - however her brother opposes. Directed by Prabhu Deva, it was successful at the box office, and Krishnan won two awards for the film which include the Filmfare Award and Nandi Award.

Trisha next appeared in Mani Ratnam's political drama Aayutha Ezhuthu, starring as part of an ensemble cast that included Siddharth Narayan, Madhavan and Surya. Her subsequent releases, N. Lingusamy's Jiand the Vijay-starrer Aathi did not do well at the box office, while Aaru was a success and was received well by critics. Her 2006 Telugu film, Pournami, directed by Prabhu Deva, was a flop. However, another 2006 film, Something Something ... Unnakum Ennakum, where Krishnan acted opposite Jayam Ravi, did well at the box office. The film was a remake of the Telugu film, Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana, where she essayed the same role.

Trisha starred in the Telugu film Stalin with Chiranjeevi, following which her Telugu film Sainikudu with Mahesh Babu was released. Her next release was Aadavari Matalaku Ardhalu Verule where she was cast opposite Venkatesh. The film, Selvaraghavan's first Telugu venture, was a family entertainer and received good response especially from the family audience. Krishnan's performance was critically acclaimed and won her accolades, eventually resulting in her third Filmfare win.

In Kireedam with Ajith Kumar, Krishnan tried comedy and received rave reviews. Kireedam opened with high expectations and received good reviews from media and audience and was declared a success. Her 2008 films, Bheema and Kuruvi failed to succeed at the box-office, while Krishna with Ravi Teja, opened to rave reviews, and became a blockbuster. Her other release Bujjigadu starring Prabhas, directed by Puri Jagannadh was released during Summer and made a decent run. However Radhamohan's Abhiyum Naanum became a super hit and Krishnan was praised for her performance. King starring Akkineni Nagarjuna directed by Sreenu Vaitla was a December release and it became a blockbuster.

In 2009 her movie Sarvam with Arya did not do well and became just an average grosser. Her latest Tamil release Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, directed by Gautham Menon opposite Silambarasan, released to positive reviews and also became a commercial blockbuster. Her 2010 Telugu release Namo Venkatesa, opposite Venkatesh, is a super hit. In the same year Krishnan starred in Manmadhan Ambu with Kamal Haasan and R. Madhavan and it became an above average grosser. Trisha made her debut in Hindi film industry with the Priyadarshan film Khatta Meetha, starring opposite Akshay Kumar. Her latest release Theenmaar with Pawan Kalyan, which released on April 2011, has become a huge blockbuster. Her next release is Ajith Kumar's magnum-opus Mankatha which is scheduled for June 2011 release. She also has signed up to do Bodyguard in Telugu opposite superstar Daggubati Venkatesh. The film is a remake of the Malayalam Bodyguard.

Trisha recently replaced Rani Mukherjee as the Brand Ambassador of Fanta India. She is the brand ambassador of Scooty Pep+, for which she has replaced Preity Zinta. She is also the brand ambassador for Vivel Di Wills, a product by ITC Limited. In 2011, She has replaced Asin in Fairever fairness cream commercial.

In 2010, Krishnan collaborated with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in issuing a public appeal to domesticate stray dogs and not crave for pedigreed foreign breeds. In 2011, she won the 2010 NDTV Indian of the Year award under the Southern Star of the Year category.

Trisha was the subject of a controversy in 2004 when a two and a half minute video clip of her taking a shower in the nude circulated over the Internet. She, however, denied her appearance in the clip, saying, "It was not me in the 2½ minute bathing video clip and someone who wants to malign my name has done this on purpose." In fact, the clip, which purports to have been shot from a hidden camera, makes it clear the subject, who often makes eye contact with the camera and engages in exaggerated pelvic gestures, knew she was being filmed. This makes it unlikely to be Trisha. In any case, she later filed a complaint with the Chennai Police Commissioner. Subsequently, the Editor of the Tamil weekly Netrikkan was arrested by Chennai Police for publishing the nude photographs of her in the weekly. In 2010, she was involved in a drug scandal controversy in Hyderabad, when a report on a Telugu channel claimed that Trisha's name was included with other top celebrities in the list of clients of Chima Clement, a Nigerian drug peddler, arrested in Hyderabad. Her name featured in the list because the channel assumed fashion designer Sidney Sladen, a close friend of Trisha of African origin, to be the Nigerian drug peddler. She declared the scandal as an attempt to malign her name in the Telugu film industry. She also sued the channel for dragging her name into the scandal.
