As Amala Paul turns 21 today, the girl is poised to make many leaps in the coming months. She shot to fame with Mynaa (Prema Khaidi) and has since had not to look back.
Though her first Telugu film, Bejawada, was a disaster and it did not give her any fillip, her film with Siddharth, Love Failure, in which she was her very restrained and subdued self, gave her the much needed boost. Since that film, she has been roped in by VV Vinayak (for Naayak), Puri Jagannadh (for Iddarammayilatho) and Samuthirikaran (Janda Pai Kapiraju). The last one is a Telugu-Tamil bi-lingual which sees her cast opposite Naani.
Amala is busy shooting for 'Nimirndhu Nil' with 'Jayam' Ravi. She, after finishing her Plus Two education, took a sabbatical before planning to pursue engineering. At the time, her modeling portfolio was spotted by noted Malayalam director Lal Jose who offered her a supporting role in his remake, Neelathamara (2009). After she forayed into Kollywood, her life changed forever.
