Indraja (born Rajitha) is an Indian film actress known for her works predominantly in Telugu cinema, Malayalam cinema and Television. She is also starred in few Tamil and Kannada films. [1]

Early life[edit]

Indraja was born in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, into Telugu speaking, carnatic musician family. She is the eldest of three sisters, the other two being Bharathi and Sobha. During school days, she won prizes in singing and drama competitions. A trained classical singer and dancer, she learned Kuchipudi dance form Madhavapeddi Murthy.[2] She was preparing to be a journalist.[3][4]

Cinema[edit]

S. V. Krishna Reddy's Yamaleela catapulted her to instant stardom. The film ran for over a year.[5] She acted in Thadayam and Rajavin Parvaiyile but she has not been able to make much headway in Tamil movies, as both movies failed to make an impact at the box office.[6] She appeared as a female villain in the Telugu serial Sundarakanda, while also making a special appearance in Tamil serial Bhairavi. Currently[when?] she is acting in Sun TV's Serial Valli.
