Actress Lakshmi Biography

Lakshmi Narayan is an Indian National Film Award winning actress who predominantly works in Tamil cinema. Lakshmi has acted in more than 300 films in all south Indian languages apart from few in Bollywood. She has won a Filmfare Best Actress Award and eight Filmfare Awards South.

Lakshmi`s father Yaragudipati Varada Rao (Y. V. Rao), originally from Nellore, Andhra Pradesh, was a Telugu filmmaker and actor whose films dealt with important social issues. Her mother Kumari Rukhmani was a Tamil actress, whose mother Nungambakkam Janaki was also an actress. They eased her into films, making her a third-generation film actress.

Lakshmi was fifteen when she started acting in films. Her first film was Jeevanamsam, a Tamil film released in 1968. The same year she entered Telugu cinema through Bandhavyalu. She became well-known among the North-Indian audience through the film Julie (1975) in which she played the title role. Her performance in the film earned her a Filmfare Best Actress Award.

She became a popular actress in South India in the 1970s acting in all four South Indian languages: Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam. Her Malayalam film Chattakari (1974) was remade in Hindi as Julie (1975) and in Telugu as Miss Julie Prema Katha (1975). In addition to a Filmfare Best Actress Award, she also won the Bengal Film Journalists` Association Awards for the "most outstanding work of the year", for her work in Julie. She is a versatile actress with a glamorous touch. In the Telugu film Panthulamma, she is credited with giving one of her best performances.

After her success in Julie, however, she didn`t star in many Hindi films and instead concentrated on doing more South Indian films. She won the National Film Award for Best Actress for Sila Nerangalil Sila Manithargal (1977), becoming one of the first South Indian actresses to win in that category for a Tamil film. When her career as a leading lady ended in the 1980s, she started playing supporting roles as a mother and later as grandmother. She played Aishwarya Rai`s grandmother in Jeans (1998) and Kareena Kapoor`s grandmother in Hulchul (2004). She has performed in more than 400 films and has also been involved in politics.

Lakshmi took a break from acting to host two talk shows, including the Tamil talk show Achamillai, Achamillai. After the talk shows ended, she returned to acting in films. She is fluent in all four South Indian languages. She currently hosts a talk show in Kannada for Suvarna channel called Idu Kathe alla Jeevana. She also hosts a talk show in Tamil for Vijay TV called Kadhai Alla Nijam. She also directed a Kannada film Makkala Sainya.

Lakshmi was married three times. Her first marriage was to Baskar, which was arranged by her parents when she was seventeen. Her only biological child, Aishwarya, was born in 1971. Her marriage ended in a divorce, and she gained custody of her daughter, who later became an actress in the 1990s, making her a fourth generation actress. Lakshmi fell in love with her Chattakari leading man Mohan, but that relationship ended. While she was shooting En Uyir Kannamma, she and actor-director Sivachandran fell in love and got married.

Her daughter Aishwarya, gave birth to a baby girl in the mid 1990s, making Lakshmi a real-life grandmother. Lakshmi adopted a baby girl in 2001.

But so far no chance. But I am satisfied and lingering my thoughts in getting a reply from madam during my college days in response to my letter sent to her with madam photo signed by madam. I only used to see the films acted by the madam as heroine. no herione is equal to lakshmi madam both in acting, dialogue and beauty. In all rolls I see her special talent and ability and natural beauty
