Young actress Sheela is debuting in Mollywood with the Mammootty film 'Mayabazaar'. She will be known in the Malayalam film industry as Maya and not Sheela.

This decision comes because she does not want to be confused with the veteran actress with the same name. She reportedly has chosen the name Maya because that is the name of her character in the film 'Mayabazaar'.

Sheela debuted into filmdom as a child artist and became a known name with film goers. Though her mother tongue is Telugu, Sheela was seen more in Tamil than Telugu films.

She made her debut as a lead star in Telugu with Hari Gopalakrishna Murthy's 'Seethakoka Chiluka' in 2006. Then came films like 'Vedha', 'Kanna', 'Ilavattom', 'Arindhum Ariyamalum', 'Seethakoka Chiluka', 'Cheena Thana' and Allu Arjun's Telugu movie.
