Have you heard of Haripriya? The mononymous (single-named) film star is one of the hottest dancers and actresses working in South India, having appeared in over 20 movie productions since her silver screen debut in 2007.

Haripriya was born Shruthi (another mononym!) in Chikkaballapura, Karnataka in 1988. After completing high school and college prep, her older brother encouraged her to move to Bangalore to develop her passion for dance and theater. In Bangalore Haripriya learned Bharatnatyam, a traditional South Indian dance style that requires a great deal of flexibility and artistic sensibility. Becoming a Bharatnatyam dancer opened up many possibilities for Haripriya, and 2007 she landed her first film role in Badi.

At this time she set aside her birth name Shruthi in favor of the stage name Haripriya, as we know her by today.

Acting Is in Her Blood

Haripriya is not the first in her family to pursue a career in movies. Her grandfather often appeared in local small theater productions, though he never made it onto the big screen. In interviews, Haripriya cites her grandfather as her biggest inspiration in pursuing her dream of acting.

Sadly, he passed away before he could see his granddaughter become the Indian film star she is today.

      I had never heard of Haripriya before, but she is stunning. If her acting and dancing matches her looks, no wonder she is taking Indian Cinema by storm. Thank you for this hub.
