Sneha is a leading actress in South Indian film industry whose family hails from Panrutti in Tamil Nadu.she was born to Rajaram and Padmavathy. Some of her major films include Autograph, April Madhathil and Vasool Raja MBBS with Kamal Haasan. Sneha was the one of the few actresses in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam movies who refused to take up glamourous roles, as she believed that her 'homely roles' are appreciated by all South Indian audience. Since Chinna, she is increasing her glamourous appearances. She acted in several Tamil and Telugu movies. She also acted in two Malayalam and Kannada movies.


Sneha, began her film career in 2001 film Malayalam film as a supporting artiste, however her major breakthrough came later that year in a Tamil language film, Ennavale opposite Madhavan. Later that year, she starred in the successful venture, Aanandham as well as a prestigious project for K. Balachandar in Parthale Paravasam, she finished the year with a foray into Telugu cinema, making two appearances in notable films.

In 2002, Sneha broke into the "big league". Unlike many other top actresses of her time, her acting was praised, and was likened to a modern day Revathi Menon. A total of 8 films, were released including her first major hit in Telugu with Hanuman Junction as well as other hits in Unnai Ninaithu and April Madhathil. Prestigious films with top actors also followed, such as King and Pammal K. Sambandam with Vikram and Kamal Haasan respectively.

After a successful previous year, Sneha became more aware with her choice of films, with only two releasing in 2003. The first being with a big actor, Vijay in Vaseegara, the second being a heroine-orientated double role in Parthiban Kanavu. The film became a commercial hit as well as winning plaudits for Sneha's portrayal of the double role.

2004 was a mixed year for the actress, with Jana, Bose, Venky and Adhu, a horror film, all failing at the box-office. However, Vasool Raja MBBS opposite Kamal Haasan became a commercial success, while her guest role in Autograph, another successful project, was praised.

Though she has acted in many Telugu films, the success of K Ragavendra Rao-directed mythological movie Sri Ramadasu (2006) helped Sneha to firm up her foothold in Telugu cinema. Her role in the movie, steeped in the bhakti culture, was well appreciated by moviegoers. Meanwhile, her Mollywood flick with Mammootty, Thuruppugulan (2006), was also a big hit. In Pudhupettai (2006), Sneha as a battered and bruised prostitute is a revelation.Then, she acted in Thankar bachan's Pallikoodam in which she played as a village teacher.
